There aren’t many bummers about my dad living in Hawaii (I mean, come on!), but one of the biggest is that he’s not always as close as I’d like him to be. However, being the wonderful father that he is, he flew out to be with me before and during my chemotherapy. Chemo started on Wednesday, and he arrived on Monday morning. During these past couple of days, we have shared many laughs. I can always count on him to add humor to my life! He, like many others, asked what I would like to do before the chemo and sick battle begins. My answer is always the same. Let’s just hang out! We don’t have to be doing anything. Just being together, and sharing these moments is more than enough.
Tuesday we were at the book store. Perusing through books, browsing around online, and chatting. As I was sharing my Pinterest obsession with Dad, another idea popped in my mind. My fellow pinners understand that creativity is at a high when pinning is present. I started searching online for cancer jokes. I found some really funny ones on a site called cancerisnotfunny.com, and I want to share my favorites with you.
Now, please try not to be offended. Please understand that humor is a priority in my life. Please respect my way of coping. You might find it helps you get through this in a smoother way, as well!

“Worst ways to break cancer diagnosis news to your family”
- Wear an I’ve Got Cancer t-shirt around the house
- (Using overly intricate means): Spouse- “Honey, you don’t look so well. Are you feeling alright?” Response- “Well, if by ‘are’ you mean ‘do’, and if by ‘feeling’ you mean ‘have’, and if by ‘alright’ you mean ‘cancer’…then, yes I most certainly do!”
- “Alright, everyone! Raise your hand if you don’t have cancer!” (Leave your hand down.)
