“Cancer does not respect fame and fortune”….
Everybody knows that so long as you are breathing and still doing some activities in your life, you’ve the tendency of having a cancer. Cancer is a disease that can affect and kill anyone on this earth. Anybody can be an unwilling recipient; it attacks rich or poor people, a politician, a president, a teacher, a scientist as well as the celebrities.
Today, in our generation, cancer cases are consistently climbing. Nevertheless, survival cases have been also growing. And we would like to know exactly how these cancer victims survived a killer disease, did they try undergoing a few alternative cancer treatments? Or did they simply concentrate on doing standard cancer treatments or perhaps they’ve done both. This is the list of famous people who have been diagnosed with cancer and made it through.
1. Kate Jackson – who can fail to remember Sabrina Duncan of Charlie’s Angels 1970s television series? She is probably one of the most popular characters of early Charlie’s Angels’ series. She was a two-time cancer of the breast survivor; the very first time she was diagnosed with cancer was in 1987 right after the end of Scarecrow and Mrs. King TV series. She had successfully return on TV and shoot for Baby Boom; however, the series lasted for only one season because the audience failed to like it. In 1989, her breast cancer came back while she was starring in a series referred to as Lover boy. She successfully made it through her two cancer incidents and that’s one reason why she was included and became a cover of People magazine in May 1992. In her feature, she shared how life changing and inspiring her ordeals were.
2. Rod Stewart – Hot Legs, Sailing and I Don’t Want to talk about it, are three of the greatest hits that made Rod Stewart one of the most famous singing sensation. However, as everyone knows cancer doesn’t respect anyone. It doesn’t care exactly how prominent you are or just how great you are; Rod learned that he had a malignant thyroid gland in his throat while doing a routine checkup in 2000. He, for the meantime, stopped singing to undergo a surgical treatment for his throat. The cancer was removed surgically and Rod ultimately came back to his first love which is singing following his operation. He informed everybody that he felt a lot better after that operation.
3. Lance Armstrong – Tour de France is what made Lance Armstrong famous and dominate over the world of cycling. He’s amongst the most famous cyclists, winning Tour de France seven times! It was after his seventh consecutive win that he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Testicular cancer is a cancer developed in the testicles which is a part of male reproductive system. He was diagnosed to have 3rd stage cancer in 1996, and the cancer cells have spread all over his lungs and brain. Although everybody knows that it is unattainable for him to pull through, he went through two surgeries aimed to eliminate his testicular cancer and another to remove the one in his brain. He eventually survived and educated himself about the disease and this at some point inspired him to establish a foundation in 2008 which was named “Lance Armstrong Foundation and Demand Media”.
These people are certainly much like us; they have the same parts of the body much like us. The thing is, nobody is exempted from having cancer. No popular person can get away the moment it strikes. Get encouragement from these folks, they never lost hope, they decided to live that’s why God gave them another opportunity at living. If you’re identified as having cancer now, use that as an inspiration to other individuals.
You might want to try doing alternative cancer treatments. Whatever you may think that’s helpful and will help you, do it. And use your life tale as an inspiration to other people. You may not be as well-known as these celebrities, but making it through this disease could make you even famous than before, because you have inspired and used the lessons in your life to support others.
