OK ladies. I know this may go over like a lead balloon but I have a weird sense of humor. And in the spirit of Jeff Foxworthy and his redneck jokes I thought we might have enough material to do some cancer jokes.
You know you are a cancer patient when ...
You read a book and you laugh when the subject has been diagnosed with cancer and their first question to the oncologist is "Will I lose my hair?".
Your onc says that you need a transfusion and you ask "Can I get that from a nineteen year old?"
When your onc asks you the folllowing "Are you fatigued? Apetite OK? Any neuropathy? Bowels OK?" and you respond with "Can't you come up with any new questions?" and the onc responds with "I get paid to ask these questions!"

When you have to shave the side of your foob instead of your underarm because the skin that use to be under your arm is now on the side of your foob.
When you're feeling pretty good, normal again, until somebody walks up to you with that sad look on their face and asks you if you're alright. For a brief moment you're wondering why they're looking so sad, and then you remember, you have BC.

When your dog thinks your foob is a nice pilllow.
She is blind and I had put it on the floor because it was still wet from the beach.

you know you have cancer when you tell a cancer joke to non-cancer friends and they look at you horrified while you are cracking up at your own joke.
