Kieran Healy Kieran’s Cancer Corner

First post: Jul 23, 2021 Latest post: Nov 9, 2022
Yeah, I have stage IV Diffuse large B-cell non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. What does that mean? I have no idea, that’s what my oncologist is for. It DOES mean I have cancer. A lot of it. Starting in my lymph nodes, it has overtaken my liver, a huge tumor has settled into my stomach area, and a massive tumor below and around my belly button. And all throughout in little dots and spots. Whatever.

I have no real sob story to tell, except I’m going to beat this thing like a dusty rug. If you want to hear about it, stick around, check in for updates! I dunno, maybe cool merch or something fun down the road. A commemorative mug.  Humor (so-called) is my weapon here. Bad jokes, dark jokes, maybe funny jokes. I will also at times be unsparingly honest because I know no other way if things get raw. 

Enough of that. Step into Kieran’s corner, because who really is in cancer’s corner? 

True statement: Love to all. Except Nazis and people who don’t give up their seat for pregnant people.
