A positive outlook? To many this may be easier said than done, however, I can say that a positive outlook is not only possible, it is imperative. I can be done, it is done.
My wife was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiform IV in March 2005. Like Sen. Kenneday, she was given the 6 to 18 months of life expectation. Sen. Kennedy died almost to the day of his expectation. My wife, under the same care and medications, has survived for 54 months. She has an attitude of life is for living each day. This does not mean denial, it does not mean giving lip service to an attempt to live but to know it, feel it, give it to spirit in the deepest atoms of the soul. Allow prayers and pray yourself. The body does respond. It nows when one has given up. It knows when to fight for life. It does respond and will keep the bad little mutant cancer cells at bay. Indefinately? No, but as she sets an example and provides inspiration others find more time and a greater quality of life than ever expected. None of us are getting out of here alive. Make the ebst of waht life throws at you and if that is cancer you may find a magnificance never expected. Our cancer has been teh best worst thing we could ever have expected. Do I wish it were never here? Yes, oh yes, but wishes are desires with possibiolity or energy. So, this wish cannot and will never be granted. So we must do waht we can with waht we ahve. We have a life given by the hands of God. He will giude you and keep you and open a path that is beyond any dream you could ever imagine. Is a positive attitude possible; in short YES!
Sorry for the miss spells.
