cancer needs no accomplices

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel — “didn’t tell anyone” came with the news of Tracy’s cancer, and it caused me to think.  I had one romance between my first and second wife, and her late husband had died of cancer years before I knew her.  She had reconciled with the fact that cancer was the killer, and blame had no target.  She had reviewed decades of marriage and meals and habits of hers and her late husbands and struggled for years to accept cancer was the killer, and there was no-one, no-thing, and no-practice to blame.  Tracy would not accept chemo, which does not mean she surrendered.  It just means her methods were different, and it seems ineffective.  Chemo and modern Western medicine is one way to treat cancer, and not a sure-fire way to stop the killer, cancer.  Cancer is a terrible killer; it is the villain, and we are all innocent victims or survivors of innocent victims.
