What’s with the Good Cancer?

If you’ve been diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, I’m sure you’ve heard the term “good cancer.” How does it make you feel? Personally, I’m not the biggest fan. When someone uses that term, I do my best to educate people about why it’s probably not the best thing to say.

After watching my video, do you understand why this term could be offensive? Have you been told that you have the “good cancer” before? Sound off in the comments! 🙂

    @radiant-racheli The only good cancer is the one that comes with a horoscope, and even that’s not so great all the time (reserved and introverted? Yeah, don’t think so BuzzFeed quiz). It’s always the second question they ask though. Great vid as usual. Keep on keepin’ on, DPM
