Cancer In the Media
Something that I find annoying is the way that cancer/the life of a cancer patient is portrayed in the media, it tends to be shown in a completely different way to how it actually is in real life, this is quite annoying as if it's shown unrealistically this means that people may believe that how it is shown in books/films/tv shows is what it is actually like in real life when it really isn't. I think that the media needs to illustrate realistically the life of a cancer patient because a lot of people don't seem to understand how hard it actually is, There are many things that need to be shown from not leaving the house because of neutropenia or because you don't want to be seen in a wheelchair to the constant fatigue and sickness that nobody sees or understands. I want to be able to show people this and explain so others can kind of understand as I feel like people need to be taught.
