It's a Bird! It's a Plane!! NO!!! It's CancerGirl!!!!

Ok, so yesterday you all learned about who CancerGirl is. I am figuring that you all want to know how CancerGirl got to be CancerGirl, and how SuperDog came to be CancerGirls SideKick.

On that sweet note, I have decided upon a format for my Blog. I have decided that every Blog will have 3 sections to it. A big part of fighting the evil of cancer, is having something to look forward to in the future, something like a "Just let me make it till Christmas" type of an idea. Sooooooo....

I am going to have 3 components to my blog. Yesterday. Today and Tomorrow


It is important to look back on your life and find the humor in it. CG and SH spend a lot of time reminding each other of the funny things that have happened in their lives together. To be able to enjoy the same moment over and over again is truly having a SuperPower. You have the pwer to recall that memory any time you start to feel the rays of the EvilGloom (EG for short) and by using that memory you are able to ward off gloominess.

It is also important to look back on your life and see how you have changed, where you were and how far you've come. Noone ever stays stuck forever. Hopefully you grow, and as you do you gain the SuperPower of Wisdom.

Yesterday will be the section where I give you all a little history of CancerGirl, how she and SuperHusband came to be partners, and how SuperDog came to be CancerGirls SideKick.

This way every day you will learn more and more about CancerGirl, without having to read pages and pages of information. Short and sweet, that is what I am looing to acheive here folks.


Today is a very important aspect of CancerGirls life. Today is when she does her daily battles in life. Today is the place where all the SuperHeroes of the world get together and meet and help each other fight whatever it is that they are fighting. Today is when you get to charge up another of your superpowers, GratitudeAttitude. GratatudeAttitude is the power to be grateful for whatever you have been blessed with, yet not getting an attude like you are better then anyone.

Today will be the section where I will talk about what is going on in the adventures of CancerGirl and SuperDog. This is where you will get all your "What happened to CancerGirl at school today??" and "How did CancerGirl get her HumorMeter recharged today?" gossip and information.


Tomorrow is I think one of the best times in the world. It is the best because it is soo full of promise and excitement. It is such a mystery that millions are spent every year on calling people who claim to have power over tomorrow. People who swear that they are able to tell you what the future has in store for you. CancerGirl is not religious, but she does beleive in the SuperPower of Karma. Karma is one of the greatest superpowers because you have some ability to control that SupserPower. If you are good to others, then you can strnthen your Karma. Kinda Like Earl of My Name Is Earl.
Tomorrow will be where I will talk about something that I am looking forward to, even if it is something small. It is what is on the horizon for CancerGirl.


Todays link ties into Todays Blog. I mentioned Karma earleir in this post, so on that note, today's link is

My Name Is Earl TV Fan Site

Earl Hickey is a man who did many many bad things to many many people. He stole, cheated, lied, and swore in front of babies. He lives with his brother Randy, who is a little shall we say "off" but is truly just a big ole teddy bear.

Earl wins the jackpot on a scratch off lottery ticket, but in his excitement, while running across the street, he gets hit by a car and his lottery ticket comes out of his hands and is blown down the street.

Earl has a Epiphany while he is in the hospital when he sees someone on TV talking about Karma, and how "if you do good things good things will happen to you, if you do bad things, bad things will happen to you". He comes to the conclusion that Karma must have been to blame for the mishaps that have left him broke, mentally, physically and financially. He decides that the only way to get the money Karma took from him back is to go back and make up for every bad thing he ever did. He compiles a list so he can keep track.

The show follows Earl as he goes around trying to help others in order to get his money back.

It is a very funny show, and has provided CancerGirl with many many hours of recharging her HumorMeter

Here is a link where you can purchase the seasons of My Name Is Earl

My Name is Earl - Season One

Remember that every purchase you make through my Blog helps CancerGirl fulfill her mission of bringing the strongest SuperPower out there, the power of Laughter, to people hospitalized receiving medical treatment.

CancerGirl Here

IT”S A BIRD!!! IT’S A PLANE!!! NO!! IT’S CANCERGIRL!!! That’s right folks, The One, The Only, CancerGirl…..

Since this is the first Blog entry, I might as well introduce myself and a few details about my life. (Not too many though, as a superhero never tells too much).

My name of course is CancerGirl. What’s that? You thought I was gonna give you my real name??? Now what kind of superhero would I be if I went around just telling everyone my true identity? Are you aware of the problems that would cause? Imagine when I burst through the side of your building to use my power of laughter to brighten your day and you are like “Well thanks CancerGirl, now that I am laughing, how do you expect to pay for my wall???” Seeee As CancerGirl I just Zoom right out of there and I’m gone…. Not to be seen again till someone else is in need of comic relief.

How I became CancerGirl is story for another day. This post is just to let you all know who I am and a little about my life.

I will throughout this Blog probably end up going from the first to 3rd person context of speaking, sometimes speaking of CG as myself and sometimes narrating CG adventures. This is just one of my quirks along with throwing in a capital letter places it doesn’t belong so bear with me.

So who is CancerGirl? CG is a 32 year old hearing impaired superhero who has scoliosis which has led to degenerative disk disease. In July CancerGirl’s real life persona CK was diagnosed with Uterine Cancer when a tumor was found, of all the places for a uterine tumor to show up, IN HER UTERUS. A grapefruit sized tumor smack dab in the middle of her uterus.

I am not really all that into the exact medical facts and such of having Cancer. I am more of an “ehhh life happens” kind of person when it comes to big things. So I am not one to go researching asking the dr for exact names of drugs and treatments and all that. I trust that the Dr knows what he is doing, and he is perfectly fine with me trying to live my life and not obsess over numbers and lab results and such. I see him when I need to, and I do what I need to do to take care of it, but otherwise I am living my life.

Since CG isn’t overly concerned with medical facts and long boring medical information stuff, this Blog is NOT going to be full of medical information and drug names and long boring explanations of medical stuff. If you are looking for that kind of Cancer Blog, then this is not the place for you. On the other hand, if you want to follow a real life SuperHero through her day to day life of dealing with cancer, going to college and laughing as much as she possibly can then definitely become one of my spotters (Person who follows or spots CG in the world.)


Everyday CancerGirl will e posting a link in her Blog to an article, website, or other interesting things she found on the web and saying a few words about it. The links will also be added daily to the LINKS tab on this Blog page.

Today’s site is

Postsecret is one of CancerGirl’s most favorite websites. (No surprise since one of a SuperHeroes most important tools is his secrets) It is a collection of secrets that thousands, if not millions of people have put onto a postcard and sent to anonymously. Some of them are sad, but a good number of them are also funny.

They have Sunday Secrets, which is where they post 20 or so new postcards every Sunday, SH and CG spend early every Sunday morning looking at the Sunday Secrets. Join us every week while we look.
