If you believe that we are all souls in a physical body, rather than a physical body with a soul, then it should be comforting to know, that your soul will be untouched by cancer. I love the short reading called "What Cancer Cannot Do" below.

"What Cancer Cannot Do"

Cancer is so limited...
It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter love.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot eat away peace.
It cannot destroy confidence.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot shut out memories.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot reduce eternal life.
It cannot quench the spirit.
