I am sickened with disgust. I have lost my Mother and friends to the horror that is cancer. It is a cruel, painful and insideous disease and you never really get over the death of one you love from this terrible disease watching them suffer and slowly die in front of you. It continues to cause me pain and i do break down in tears even now when i remember seeing my Mother learning of her illness and then having to watch her die.
The Government has never put serious thought, funding or support to the cause of Cancer Research. Instead too many good people have put their own time and effort into raising funding for the cause, but when it comes to politicians they have not even bothered to lift a finger. And now an election promise by the current Government in the UK that if they win this years General Election then they will provide free one to one care for cancer patients. All very laudable but it does not win my respect. if they really cared they coould have done this years ago. So i see this as nothing but a cheap and frankly sickening cheap shot to win votes. I am seething with anger over this. I am seriously considering not bothering to vote at all this time round. But this announcenment has angered me. It is two faced and an insult to everyone who has fought this disease either directly or indirectly.
Support Cancer Research by donating a little something each month. Together we can beat this thing and politicans can go shove their voting dreams where the sun dont shine !!!
