Or has died of cancer. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And Domestic Violence month too. So we should never forget those who have been a victim of either. Comments. 馃檪

We shouldn't forget ALL cancers. I know that October is Breast Cancer awareness month...but they see to get ALL the focus on cancer awareness. Yes, I have had friends and family who had breast cancer and some have died. I have also had the same with prostate cancer, skin cancer, lung cancer and others. Let's be aware of breast cancer....and ALL cancers!

[@1026188,Pinto] Well said. There should be a cancer awareness month instead.

[@322117,Zonuss] Almost every cancer has their own month (Lung is November, Prostate is September, Skin is May)...but the Susan G Komen folks have done a remarkable job of marketing October. Too good in fact that others suffer in donations, etc in comparison. But yes...an overall Cancer Awareness month would be good!

Yes, numerous someones. My mother and her mother, my brother, a close friend...all died of cancer, to name a few. One of my favorite aunts had breast cancer, but that isn't what she died from.

My former husband and a close friend are both "survivors" of cancer, so far.

My wife had cancer. My mother-in-law had cancer. My wife's sister's husband died of cancer. My brother's wife has had recurring cancer. A friend my wife and mine had cancer.

[@10617,DunningKruger] How is your wife doing now. Did she survive. 馃
DunningKruger56-60, M
[@322117,Zonuss] She did fine. Hysterectomy got rid of it. Didn't even have to do chemo or radiation.
Zonuss41-45, M
[@10617,DunningKruger] That is good to hear.

I only know one person who had breast cancer - a man. I know of a few men who have been victims of domestic abuse too.
Zonuss41-45, M
[@379861,Sharon] Wow.

[@322117,Zonuss] Yes, breast cancer is very rare in men but it does happen.
Yes, two died. One was family.
Few are surviving out of whom I meet one daily.

My first girlfriend died of breast cancer at age 49.
My sister-in-law died of lung cancer at age 55.
My brother鈥檚 best friend died of prostate cancer at age 53.
My father-in-law died of prostate cancer at age 80.

There have been others as well.

[@475592,Dragon56] I've lost as many family, all to cancer of some sort. Cancer sucks. I'm sorry for your losses.
