The Real Enemy

Cancer does not recognize partisanship.  It doesn't care about wealth, entitlement, how hard you've worked or what harm you've done.

It kills indiscriminately.

Individuals cannot be strong enough on their own to destroy cancer.  When we make it a one-person battle, we doom every generation that follows to fight the same fight, and lose.

That's the thing about disease, and natural disaster, etc; they don't follow the rules of free-market capitalism.
The only way to win against cancer is research, testing, support of family and friends, treatment - in short, community.

The moral of the story should be clear enough not to need stated - but I will state it anyway.

Live together, die alone.

Living is better.
