My mom died of Pancreatic Cancer at just 56 years old.
My grandma died of breast cancer.
I've had the privilege of visiting the kids at the the Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital, many of which are fighting cancer. It's a humbling, heartbreaking but absolutely inspiring experience that I treasure having.
It's hard to find the silver lining in a cancer diagnosis.
The woman in this article should be celebrated for being a fighter. Finding the silver lining of her diagnosis to be losing 44 pounds is perfectly acceptable, if that's what she chooses to do.
Using that as your headline so people will click on your article? Garbage. It's a classless move that we keep seeing more and more of.
If the answer to this headline were she, I don't know, only ate apples (which is a thing), that would be fine. But to open this and see it was because she had cancer... I mean it's just burying the lead, which is she is a survivor; a fighter; an inspiration.
I'm probably overreacting. After all I have a personal reason to do so.
Nothing more should be done to Cosmo or anything... they are receiving their punishment with the outrage.
I wish people would use better judgement.
