LETTERS FROM CANCER CARE ONTARIO
Cancer Care Ontario, a provincial governmental agency, keeps sending me letters telling me that I should have a Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) because I could have colon cancer and not know it.
A Fecal Occult Blood Test? Sounds like something involving shit and the supernatural.
Are the letters The Universe’s way of trying to tell me something, or are these letters simply another governmental agency trying to justify its existence?
True, I could have colon cancer and not know it. I could have stomach cancer, and not know it. I could have liver cancer, and not know it. I could have lung cancer, and not know it. And I could have silent voices in my head, and not know it. I feel okay. I know that.
Perhaps one day I will go see Harry Potter for that fecal occult test, but for now I won’t worry about all the coulds. I have mentioned before that I stay healthy by keeping away from doctors.
I appreciate Cancer Care Ontario’s concern, but my body came with an expiry date. Neither Cancer Care Ontario nor any doctor can do anything to change that date. They think they can, but they can’t. Anonymous once said,
