lies, cheaters, and cancer

Do those of us genuinely trying to survive cancer need agents? Do we need a “certified” stamp?

A Notre Dame University Football star, Manti Te'o, apparently invents an imaginary girlfriend dying of cancer to improve his chances of winning the Heisman trophy.

Then there is Lance Armstrong who built a financial empire on lies, cancer, and steroids. As one talking head recently claimed, “we can now retire the gold medal for cheating."

There is even a wikipedia page, of cancer victim hoaxes.

Hey!!! Is anyone listening? Most of us actually don’t lie and don’t cheat – we just try to outlive cancer.
