Cruise And Cancer An Unlikely Tandem

In Canada today it’s National Wear Pink Day, a chance for the whole country to “Get Pink’d” in support of breast cancer.

In Canada, we have a niece who is fighting breast cancer. She just returned from a cruise, which is why today’s subject is the dreaded disease.

For her, the battle is almost two years old, and sometimes it surely seems like a lifetime. Get Pink'dLike so many breast cancer victims, there has been surgery and chemo and concern. And a Disney cruise.

This was her post-cruise report:

“The cruise was amazing! It was just what the doctor ordered. We had fabulous weather with sunshine every day and beautiful temperatures.  We went zip-lining in St. Thomas, horseback riding in Puerto Rico and sat on the beach at Castaway Cay, Bahamas. There is always something to do on the ship and Disney didn't let us down.

“We saw lots of musical shows, comedians, magic acts, Disney movies, and even played bingo. I would do a Disney cruise again.  It definitely distracted me from the realities of life. I think I had a permanent smile on my face for two weeks and don't they say that laughter is the best medicine?  I must be cured then if that's the case.”

Funny, nobody ever thinks about how therapeutic a cruise can be.
