Humor about my tumor. Take 2.

I was browsing through my blog and I found my old, long forgotten post. 5 years ago I wrote this page HUMOR ABOUT MY TUMOR. And i’m amazed, that 10 years ago, when I was diagnosed with cancer, I have more sense of humor than today. I lost it. Not all, but I can not be comedian anymore… So I decided to post it again, because we all need a little laugh today…

So here it is: HUMOR ABOUT MY TUMOR.

I know, cancer is horrible monster, and there is nothing funny about it. But somehow, even in the deepest despair we are able to find some humor This what happened to me few years ago when I was diagnosed with cancer. The Doctor told me: “You have a golf ball size tumor right in the middle of your chest”. Ouch!!! The sky fall over me. After the shock came total numbness. But few hours later I told the Doctor: “Doctor, maybe I just swallowed a golf ball”. And he said: “You know, if you can joke about it, you are going to survive it”. Well, he was right.

Later that day I told my friend about my ordeal. And she said: “If you going to get chemo, you are going to loose you hair”. And I told her: “That’s OK, I never liked my hair anyway”.

Few weeks later when I was waiting for my radiation treatment, I met this young woman and she asked me: “Do you have a breast cancer?” I said: “No. I can not have a breast cancer, because my breasts are very small”. And she said: “C’m on, even man can have a breast cancer”. So I said: “I know, but I’m the woman” She laughed and said: “I know, you are probably a volunteer”. I looked at her and said: “C’m on, who will want to volunteer to have a cancer?”. And we laugh, and laugh and cry a little.

And than, after one month of chemo and radiation treatments I got very sick. My esophagus and lungs were burned by too much of radiation. I was in horrible pain. It felt like I have swallowed a burning charcoal. When I came to see the Doctor, the nice receptionist ask me: “How are you today Anna?’ I whispered: “Horrible, I’m in pain, I’m burned here”… I pointed to my chest She asked: “when this hurts the most?” I told her: “When I’m laughing too much”…. I whispered… And we laugh, and we hug, and we cry a little.

Well, this was about 10 years ago. And I’m still laughing and crying and hugging anyone who met with cancer monster… and needs a hug… !0 years and I’m still alive, and I love every minute of it…

Thank you for visiting.

God bless. Oneanna65

  1. Your humor got you through it and helped you to survive, and along the way made others laugh too. For every smile you gave, I’m certain you started a chain reaction of smiles. Keep living and laughing. This year has been such a JOKE….and I hope in 10 years we will look back at 2020 and just laugh~!

  2. Bless you, dear Anna.
    I bet you don’t realize just how amazing you are.
    You have not only scoffed at cancer and survived it, but have shared your experience, and brought your light to many others.
    I am grateful to have met you.



  3. It was two hours after my diagnosis, that I change my mind from: I’M GOING TO DIE SOON to: I”M GOING TO SURVIVE THIS. And I don’t mind to die someday, but not because of cancer. I’m very stubborn… ๐Ÿ™‚ Hugs

  4. I am so glad this is all behind you. I, too, had breast cancer 10 years ago. I was blessed, it was caught very early (only radiation, but they had to stop early as it began to affect my skin). I have met other lovely women who also had breast cancer (some much worse than mine) but we, by the grace of God, have survived. I thank the Lord for every day I have, and am also grateful you have survived. Nice to meet you.

  5. Hi I’m currently going through chemotherapy after a mastectomy and have started a blog. I, like yourself, am getting through this with the help of humour. I’ve always tried to find a positive out of a bad situation and yes I’ve had dark times but I’m managing and coping.
    So nice to read that someone else fell back onto a little lightheartedness and humour and I’m not a weirdo.
    Well done on getting through it, can’t wait to say the same xxxx
