"Unless you've been there and done that or know someone who has, you just can`t know."

Then I can speak from knowledge...they are inspiring {in a sad, hairless kind of way} but alas, the word "hero" is misused here. That does not detract from their struggle. It`s just not accurate.

I've been through this, we aren`t heroes. The doctors and scientists are, they`re the ones we owe our lives to. If we end up surviving, all we are is lucky.

'Unless you`ve been there and done that or know someone who has, you just can`t know. You really can`t.`

Just wanna chime in here- my grandfather died of Lung Cancer a few years ago. He fought in Vietnam and won himself a Purple Heart, was a morally upstanding role-model and a beacon of integrity to everyone who knew him. He proved that through his actions throughout his life. It was the Agent Orange and Asbestos/Fiberglass from years of hard manual labour that finally got him (plus about 50 years of cigarettes). Quite literally, a hero is a person that others rely on for their sense of morality based on the deeds they`ve done. A hero is someone who has proven their honour through `heroic acts`.

I`m sorry, but getting sick and dealing with it in and of itself is not heroic. These kids have courage and perseverance, but they`re not quite heroes.
I`m not saying I don`t feel bad for them, I can`t imagine what it`s like to face your morality on such a drawn-out basi
