Today I’d like to mention the website set up by a blog reader (with whom I have corresponded privately for the past couple of years) together with his son, George, who had THREE different types of cancer in his much-too-short life…He died at the end of April 2011…
It’s a new project, but Pan has already written a few interesting articles, including the one in which he describes his young son’s medical history…Pay particular attention to the part about George’s having a defect in an important tumor suppressor gene, = TP53, which led to his being so susceptible to cancer invasion…This apparently is an inherited condition…
Anyway, here’s the link to the homepage: http://goo.gl/fdaoJ
I look forward to reading more of your posts, Pan! 🙂
That is an interesting blog. Thank You for the link.
Your friend, Pan, makes very good points and his view is very reality based with a good touch of skepticism included, but I would say that you do those same things too! There is a difference though I can’t quite put it into words. I can only say that it is the “feel” of the writing as it comes across to me the reader. I feel more upbeat when reading your blog even though you both are informative, thorough and yet still manage to convey the limitations of any studies or articles you use or comment on even though cancer is the overall issue of discussion.
I guess it could just be two different writing styles, but I feel it is more than just that. Your blog keeps me coming back for more as I have been a relatively long time reader of yours.
Perhaps it is the “mix” that you offer……..though it is an MM blog, it is not always about MM. It may be that I feel hope when reading your words and hope is very very important. Like I said, I can’t quite put it into words, but I know I will continue to comeback here!
I hope that you do come back to anticancer.org.uk at some point. The site is still new, so feedback like yours is much appreciated.
I know what you mean about Margaret’s site though. I still visit regularly, and her good humour makes a big difference I am sure.
I plan to go back!
I know you are just getting started compared to other longer term blogs so it is early to get a complete feel for your blog, but I like what you’ve done so far and would like to see more!
I’m glad you understand what I am saying about Margaret’s Corner and yes the humor definitely helps……..especially when covering this subject!
