Breast x4, thyroid x2, stomach x2, brain x2, bone x2, leukemia x1, lymphoma x1, ovarian x1, cervical x1, prostate x1, colon x1, skin x1

Then you hit your 30s, and you get announcement after announcement that friends, coworkers, acquaintances, family have cancer. A few of them die. If only the pharmaceutical company administrators would stop stuffing their pockets and invest more in cancer research. If only we could invest money in health and in education rather than in guns. If only.
