We Don’t “Battle” Disease

I read this post by a fellow dying of cancer titled, “Leukemia Has Won”. I think this makes it sound like he had a moral failing and that is why he is now dying. The other side of the “Leukemia has won” coin is that “I have been defeated”… like he didn’t try hard enough. I am sure this fellow and others with cancer do everything possibly can to find a cure and heal themselves. I am sure there is no lack of courage or strength that leads to people dying of cancer.

We need to change the language we use here… We will all die eventually, but that is not a defeat if we lead a good life.
