I agree with you Jolene I have seen whole comment sections shut down because some big shot must call in and complain. The Tribune has taken people to court to get records, picture and information that they want released, but if we write something a local biggie doesn't like...POOF it disappears!!! DOUBLE STANDARD I THINK SO!!

@Jolene, I have to agree with you about post being removed. I believe everyone is entitled to their opinion and when peoples post start offending me I simply stop ready them and save myself unwanted aggravation. I read some of your post and strongly disagreed but I didn't think they needed to be removed(at least the ones I read. I did after all only read a couple.

Daniel- I appreciate you for supporting people like me who believe in the truth. Also, I am glad you had the chance to read my posts because on Monday, they will likely be removed. Whenever people here don't agree with a post or a truthful post makes them feel uncomfortable, they have it censored and removed. Even if I disagree with a post, even strongly, I have enough respect for the person posting and for our rights to freedom of the press to refrain from having the posts removed.

daniel the single greatest thing that comes out of the relay for life is the message of hope and the pwople who have cancer deserve hope and fellowship. There is nothing wrong with giving someone battling cancer hope those are the strongest people I know and they deserve a little hope in their life. I lost my aunt and grandma four months apart to cancer they were fighters and stronger than I could ever be.

OK, Who in there right mind would disagree with MandatoryMullets and Jolene13? I might not agree with them politically but they speak the true facts here.

RIP to all my family and friends who fought courageous battles against cancer while they awaited their elusive "cures" for their cancers.

Happy Mother's Day to my beloved mother who would be with me today had "they" found the "cure" for her cancer. Deceased since August 6, 2010.

RIP Aunt Carole deceased since August 20, 2010.

RIP Uncle Ray deceased since November 2010.

RIP Uncle Hank deceased since December 2010.

Love you Aunt Ceal who is in and out of remission for the last several years still waiting for the "cure".

Love you dad who is in and out of remission for the last 2.5 years still waiting for the "cure".

If cancer wasn't such big business, cancer patients would never have to fear those dreaded words that "you have cancer again" and a child wouldn't have to rely on just one day to feel good.

I don't care whether someone censors and has this post removed and I don't care whether the Tribune kicks me off. I believe in the truth. The truth, not "charities", is what finally set me free from my intense depression over losing several family members from cancer in a very short period of time as they awaited their "cures".

Through my cancer journey I found that support is crucial not only for me but my caregivers, also. The relays give us a chance to share a meal together,swap stories and maybe a few tears. When I was in my first year I went to a relay and I was inspired to keep fighting. I know cancer could show it's ugly face again and sometimes(right before my check up) I get very scared that I'll hear those dreadful words "you have cancer again".Not only do I find comfort at the relays my family does, too. When a kid is scared of losing their mom and they can have a day that makes them feel good who would want to take that from them?

MandatoryMullets- If you continue to tell people this truth, your posts are going to be censored and removed. I had six posts removed from last week's Relay article when I posted what my family has gone through. People don't like the truth if it makes them uncomfortable. They would rather hallucinate.
