Wilko was a badass in the seminal British band Dr. Feelgood. Hang in there brother...

Ironic because he saw a doctor and now he doesn't feel good.

Pancreatic cancer is a death sentence. But you know with the resources we can.... Used to be that breast cancer was a death sentence. To the person above that said "but we still need your cold hard cash" Fark you!

I think that's what took my uncle, Jack King. Happened less than a year after he retired.

I briefly thought this was the guy who played Tywin, and got really really sad.
Not that it isn't sad of course but Tywin's actor is amazing.

That statement was likely a response to the Koman for the Cure Foundation, which is a horrible organization. A vast majority of the money donated is used for executive salaries, legal enforcement (they sue anyone using pink ribbons - even a small barbecue benefit for a local woman diagnosed with cancer - as they have it trademarked), and promotion. Almost none of the money goes to research. Wikipedia on the controversy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_G._Komen_for_the_Cure#Controversy_a nd_criticism

Cancer = bad. Profiteering on cancer = DIAF.

I swear to God there must be more transmissible parasitic cancers than we know about. How those diseases have moved into us and around the human population, who knows. But some of these cancers that are so lethal, quick, and sneaky have just go to be tired to viruses or some other infectious agent. Hug a Tasmanian devil.

/fark pancreatic. fark ovarian.

3 major health fears for me

1) any form of cancer
2) alzheimers (grand father had it, was horrible to watch him and how it destroyed my grand mother)
3) breaking both wrists at same time (cannot wipe yourself)

While looking at the ribbon chart, how do you tell if someone is a cancer survivor or it they still have bladder cancer? If you survive bladder cancer, you can save a lot of money on ribbons.

He's the tongueless guy who is the "King's Justice" (read: executioner) who Sansa is afraid of and who chopped off Ned Stark's head with Ned's own sword.

You forgot to mention that Pink was Breast. And there's purple, but I'm not recalling what that was for.

Moreover, Payne had a bigger role to play in Book 4/5. Wondering how they'll cover those scenes now, it's a big part of Jaime Lannister's character arc.

Pancreatic and ovarian cancers are hard to detect and aren't usually discovered until far too late. My dad lived a whopping 24 days after his pancreatic cancer diagnosis. None of his kids got to see him; my parents didnt tell us how how sick he was. They said stuff like "he's on new pain meds" and not "the doc gave him morphine" which we obviously would have seen as a red flag. It doesn't help that my brother's daughter in law was about to give birth (Lucas was born 5 days after Dad died), I was moving from DC to Seattle, and my other brother was also moving. Nobody expected only 24 days.

My mother-in-law was diagnosed with late stage ovarian cancer right before Christmas. I doubt she'll be here this Christmas.
