I was diagnosed at 23 with iiia colorectal cancer. I think we're going to reflect very darkly on our use of plastics and how they manage to interact with our body.

very sad news

I've actually never heard anyone say the phrase "losing a battle" was not okay. Why?

I suppose it implies something negative about the person, like they didn't fight hard enough or something.

everyone's mileage may vary but as someone with progressive incurable disease it very much feels like a battle most of the time.
