What happens when you tell your friends that you have cancer?  I've found that most of mine vanished and try to avoid me; no more emails, phone calls or other forms of contact.  Is cancer really that bad?  I was disgnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in January 2010, it had probably started in about 2006.  A friend of ours had the same diagnosis as me but about 15 years earlier, we certainly did not ignore him, we gave him as much support as possible and had far more contact with him to help out as much as we could.
