But Doctor I Hate Pink  (Ann Silberman’s blog) If you need help, if you want to talk to somebody who has cancer, who has incurable cancer and is still going,  if you have any questions about what I experienced during treatment,  all you have to do is ask me.  I am very open about it all.  Keep in mind, I am NOT a doctor, just a patient. I can only share my experience, I can’t tell you if you have cancer, how you will react to any treatment or what you should do.  I can only tell you what I would do, what I know from my own research, and what my thoughts are.
