I’ve had the opportunity to make many wonderful friends with Battling Cancer readers who email me.
However, we have another opportunity to foster community discussion at Battling Cancer — our comments!
Here’s what former Battling Cancer readers have had to say recently:
- After writing about patients’ non-compliance with prescription drugs in “Cancer Patients and Pharmaceutical Compliance,” Alex suggested an interactive reminder system that could benefit patients who may forget to administer their medications.
- In response to our coverage of the social networking services available for young adults with cancer at “Young Cancer Patients Declare, ‘I’m Too Young For This!‘”, Karen pointed gay and lesbian readers to a community called Out With Cancer.
- Ghost Rider respectfully disagreed with my coverage of motorcycle electromagnetic frequency and cancer — twice — at “Is Motorcycle Use Linked to Cancer? Part II.”
- Richard thoughtfully chimed in on our discussion on “What Your Friends and Family With Cancer Want You to Know” from a cancer patient’s point of view.
- Jesie was surprised to read about how many health care providers are available to patients undergoing hospitalization in “A Guide to Recognizing Who’s in Your Hospital Room.”
- In response to our story on “Stem Cells, Cancer and Reconstructive Surgery,” Jemarion points readers to the American Cancer Society article, “Reconstruction Surgery Rarely Discussed with Breast Cancer Patients.”
But by far, my favorite comment goes to the talented and hysterical Julie from Battling Diabetes. After reading “My Personal Status Report,” she wrote:
You know, if my husband had a table full of breats, it’d just mean he was eating a ton of chicken.
Yes, you’ll need to read the post in order to get the joke 🙂
If you’ve been reading Battling Cancer for awhile but have never left a comment, don’t worry, it’s easy! Just type in a little note in the “What Do You Think?” button underneath each post! Thanks for listening!
