We belong to a world that is busy 'sharing.' Sometimes we over-share: TMI (too much information)
There's 'Facebook' and 'Twitter' and a million more ways the Internet takes our thoughts and words and spreads them worldwide.
Video, from every angle we can imagine gives us details of lives being lived around the globe.
And it's not just good news....there's plenty of bad news too.
So why is it so hard to tell our friends and family that we have been diagnosed with cancer?
After all this time, cancer still carries a stigma that stops us from sharing this news.
Experts tell us it's important to let our inner circle know what we're facing because that's where our support comes from and cancer patients and care givers need support.
It tells me that cancer still has a grip on us from square one: from diagnosis it plays that 'control' card.
It's time to shuffle the deck.
