Pretty much a true statement: Everyone knows someone who has had, or knows someone who has had cancer.

Scary subject.

Yeah, it was a tough one to get through - this time last year had a scare with a close family member so this brought back a lot of emotions from the basement. Fascinating doc though, and incredible history I wasn't fully aware of.

Lost a father to one of the most uncurable forms, Pancreatic. His side of the family had one form or another, but was enough years ago that many were not treatable at the time.
Personally had skin cancer on my nose, fortunately was the lesser of two kinds. After my bout with that, I have had two sisters and one brother come forward stating they had the same thing.

My best friend's father had pancreatic. What a vicious cancer to get. My condolences.
