    Wow, people in my family must be really unlucky then. All of them died.

    Provided they have it in the first place, sure.

    I personally survived something thats worse than cancer. I used to have a terminal stomach disease called chronic pancreatitis. I had it for five years and have been healed since October 2007.

    That experience did a number on me, I've never been the same since then. It's strange surviving something like that because you have this idea in your mind that if you ever get healed... things will just go back to normal, but they don't. I'm pretty much damaged goods now. Being healed from that is the reason why I gave up the criminal lifestyle.

    I have a friend who survived ovarian cancer. She was fortunate enough to have pain which allowed them to catch it early.
    The mother of my son's best friend is a breast cancer survivor.
    My husband's aunt died of colon cancer within a few years after we married, though.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Oh and I just found out that the one with stomach cancer also had colon cancer. That was a number of years ago. He's 90 years old now.

    At age 50, my grandfather had stomach cancer and after having 1/2 his stomach removed, was given 6 months to live and told to go make his arrangements.

    He lived to be 78.

    My dad had brain cancer and survived.
    Then he had skin cancer and survived.

    Otherwise, no one else that I know of in my family has had it.

    I know only my grandmother who had cancer... she died on it.

    She actually lived relative long with it still (well, something like 2 years or so), since the doctor gave her less time before. She had bowel cancer and they took off some part of it, but it spread already. Still she could live some time with it nearly normal, but then it got worse again and to end she suffered badly.
