They have lasted a thousand and more years because of that entertainment value, and also because they are often imbued with wisdom and are very simply told.
I live in Minneapolis. When he did I had a PSA of But, despite very grim indicators going into surgery, I had a surprisingly good outcome. I wanted to thank you YANA for the comprehensiveness of your site, which I referred to during my journey. Recently I wrote a book for family and friends about my journey.
I was looking for a way to illustrate the book with some sardonic humor, because I believe you have to laugh in the face of grim news as both a coping and a healing tactic.
I came up with the idea of changing old pulp fiction magazine covers about fictional terrors to reflect the real terrors that guys face with this epidemic. My thought is that there already exists fantastic and comprehensive online resources like your site.
So, I needn't add to that, plus I am not the diligent discoverer about all aspects of the disease like you so gratifyingly have done. So, I thought that maybe by showing my altered magazine covers, men -- and their women -- could smile a bit about the absurdity of what they are going through and maybe take away a little uplift from this.

Tickets to the Tests, as the games are called, are scarce as hens' teeth. Kiwi Ken, living in Australia managed to get tickets for the final Test series, but he wasn't feeling too good - bladder problems mainly - so he went along to his doctor.
The doctor gave him a thorough examination and told him that he had long existing and advanced prostate cancer and the only cure was testicular removal.
Not surprisingly, he refused the treatment again, but was devastated and wondered if he'd get to the Tests or if he should make out his will and leave his tickets to his brother.
Then someone told him about an expatriate New Zealand doctor and he decided to get one last opinion from someone he could trust. The Kiwi doctor examined him and said, " Bro, you have definitely got prostate cancer.
Here's the opening paragraph: There was shock on everyone's faces when I told them. A book about cancer that contains humor; what is the world coming to? You'd think I was violating something sacred.

It's not immune to fair and frank discussion. It's even okay if we make fun of it. Cancer is not something that belongs up on a pedestal. It's a terrorist and we should be doing everything we can to expose it for what it is, and to beat it out of our lives. We should treat cancer with extreme caution, but not with reverence, and we should not cower in fear.
We need to rise up and knock the chip off cancer's shoulder. We should not be gently and respectfully handling it with kid gloves like it deserves the key to the city; we should be manhandling it with pick axes and blow torches and we should spit in its eye and defiantly tell it we hate it.
