I have two people to see in the next week that have gotten The News. His comment advises me. Thank you and peace, friend.

I can't say I remember Cancergiggles as a poster. The thought of dying of cancer is the most terrifying aspect of life, imo. Reading the last few posts, I have to say Cancergiggles was a true man.

No doubt. I hope I go with that much courage and wit, no matter the cause.

I just finished reading his whole blog. Impressive; definitely the kind of person I would have liked to meet. Here's hoping he's in a better place.

10 months since my pops died of cancer. Reading this is making me cry. I wish all the best to those he left behind.

This one i'll never forget from him, in an HIV/Cancer thread: I might be being just a tad over cautious here, but I'm going to need a serious brain washing session before I opt for this one. It's only cancer for gods sake - I don't want to risk getting something really serious.


RIP : >

Every time someone with a great sense of humor dies, it's like a whole world of fun died with them.

Well, now that is a damn shame. We'll miss you cancergiggles, even if it has already been awhile. God rest your soul.

I lost my brother-in-law earlier this year to cancer. It is hard to read cancergiggles' blog without crying. Best to his family.

Good man, Cancergiggles. The humor and heart and defiance that he expressed are the qualities I admire most in the face of this ridiculous and uncaring universe. Rest in peace.

What D_W said. I remember his blog and MeFi presence and I couldn't have put it any better. There's a shocking and gorgeous quality about this kind of defiant humour. I admire him for it immensely, and I'm not sure I would have had the heart in his position. Peace.
