    Default Soapbox time.........please read!!!!!

    I'd like to take this time to do something your all not going to believe.......I want to get serious. I'm going to tell you flat out..........If you don't feel just right......if you have a lack of energy.......Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    See your Doctor!!!! It may be a calling sign from your body that could save your life.
    I know! I'm a two time survivor of cancer. The reason I can write threads to all of you and annoy the bejeeeeeezus out of you is because I'm lucky and because I took the time to go and see my Doctor when I just didn't feel right.
    Early detection is the contributing factor to survival.
    I had skin cancer back in my late twenties and I had testicular cancer in my early forties. I'm still hanging with two....but only because of early detection.......... I know what I knows............
    Sooooooooooo do it! Do it for yourself........do it for your family.......do it for your 4 legged and 2 legged buddies........but do it!
    End of soapbox.........I now return you back to your favorite threads at English Bulldog News.......Have a great day! Mikey B.
    It's not hard to make people love you.......all you got to do is become a bulldog!
    (MJ Blaylock)
    THE END!

    Excellent post @Mike Blaylock. I know I need reminders like that because I have a strong family history of cancer. I'm glad you are a survivor!

    Thankyou @Mike Blaylock sometimes people need reminding to look after themselves and why.
    We all get complacent even I do and I look after cancer patients every working day.
    Here in the UK April is Bowel Cancer awareness month and we have organised a few events on the ward.
    I am so happy that you have survived and twice too and wish too ensure others do also xxx

    Yea for you!! being a survivor and getting checked! MOST men just shrug it off. My dad had "heartburn" for 4 days, my mom finally made him go get checked they ambulanced him ASAP to Riverside in Columbus Oh. and did a quadruple bypass when he was 52 within 12 hours of being checked for "heartburn" (I am from Ohio, I have live in Fl. for 9 yrs. near Mansfield OH) YEA MIKE!!!!!

    @ Well said Mike...Being a survivor twice over...That is HUGE! As you say...early detection and not denial is the key to a long life in most cases...

    My dad had Basal Cancer a form of skin cancer. And I slather my boys in sunscreen. People laugh because at the end of summer they are still pale skinned. My dad fortunately switched jobs. For his doctor he had seen previously wasn't concerned with the seeping spot on his head. Switched jobs years later and the new "company" doctor was concerned with it. He ended up having to have radiation treatments I believe it was...After his surgery to remove it. He teased it looked as if the doc wasn't good with directions with all the markings they had on his head that he had to walk around with during his treatments. Luckily...it hadn't reached the skull bone. Or they would have had to remove part of it.

    But Cancer is that C word that scares most...and for good cause.
