Because of his honest approach to cancer, the comic book character, Deadpool has become my unexpected hero. Before he morphs into the mutant Deadpool, he is Wade Wilson, a young man, happily living life, in love with a beautiful woman, until he is given the horrible diagnosis of terminal cancer that has invaded most of his vital organs. His girlfriend is quick to take the battle stance, telling him, “I love you, Wade Wilson. We can fight this.” But Wade knows the truth. “You’re right. Cancer’s only in my liver, lungs, prostate, and brain. All things I can live without,” he sagely responds to her battle call.
In this understandable attempt to sugar coat cancer, the patients and their family’s pain and lasting scars are continuously minimized. If only cancer were always so easily beatable, simply a romantic faint on a hot Victorian afternoon, after which the swooning lady is carried to a chaise and revived with the scent of freshly-brewed tea. Cancer does not make sense. It happens and it is hard, even if the patient survives. Treatment leaves lasting scars, and the trauma of a cancer diagnosis and treatment often leaves survivors and their families with an undeniable case of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, financial burden, and depression.
No one should fight cancer alone – this 90 minute ZUMBA event invites people of all walks of life to join in the fight and dance alongside with Kak Rosie and those who are impacted by cancer. In some ways, this is a special event to me, as I believe in this fight against cancer.
