Not to crap on the guy, but ts not like Chadwick knew about it before it was too late. I think he could have come out and say the importance of getting your checkup for something that is so preventable. hiding and/or ignoring that is what killed him.

So you wouldn't respect those of us who don't hide it from everyone? :(


kebordworyr

That’s not what they said

Speak for yourself, Norm. The moment I got my cancer diagnosis, I was looking for as much sympathy from others as possible, and I still am now. Difference of opinion, I guess.


tinytooraph

I am confused why this is being downvoted. People have different ways of dealing with problems. It’s okay to have a different perspective than Norm. Most people do and that’s part of why he was funny.


ghotier

Because norm was speaking for himself. That's the point.


your_mind_aches

Because the subreddit is currently in Norm MacDonald worship mode. If you post anything even remotely counter to anything he says or does, it's a ticket to downvotes. God forbid you mention the numerous sexual harassment and/or assault allegations. I haven't dared to do that yet but I figure 22 hours on this post is safe enough to do so.


moondes

Is there a difference of opinion? Do you think you're being braver by actively seeking sympathy?


your_mind_aches

No I'm not.

My thoughts with you. As a cancer survivor, to me there is no right or wrong way to deal with cancer and who knows and how you want/need people around you to react.

I agree....there is absolutely no wrong way with dealing with cancer! Everyone is different and fuk anyone who says you are "braver" because you keep it to yourself! I have had cancer, second time around, for almost 2 years now. It's a blood cancer like Norm had and I'm scared that I'm coming up on the end of life. They say something like 80% of people with blood cancers survive 5 years. I'm at 6 years starting from my initial diagnosis. It's getting to a point where my Dr just told me on Thursday, the chemo they have been giving me, they aren't expecting me to be put into complete remission. They are hoping it will reduce it 50%, and I go in immediately for a stem cell transplant. It's my last shot! So I no longer get to just live with this cancer any more. And you know what??? I'm f'ing ANGRY! I'm 43 years old and I'm tired of fighting! I will shout it from the rooftops and idc what anyone says! If anyone thinks I'm less brave because I want the world to know I'm angry....IDGAF!!


draculasbitch

I wish I could give you a hug. My thoughts are with you. You are entitled to every bit of your anger. Fuck anyone who thinks otherwise.


Virtual-Carpenter-33

Thank you so much. I really do appreciate your compassion. My screaming isn't at you, my screaming is more to the "cancer muggles". I can't stand people who have never ever had to deal with a life and death situation and love to tell people what's the right and wrong way to deal with cancer. I'm happy to see you are a warrior and survivor! 😊


Carolab67

Or maybe you just want others to know.

>Speak for yourself, Norm He did.

How shitty must you be to need cancer to make you noticeable?


your_mind_aches

Really? I'm the shitty one? Not Norm MacDonald who, despite being a legendary comedian, was a massive misogynist who has numerous sexual harassment allegations and a few allegations of sexual assault? Me, the person who you've known for like three sentences.


WU-itsForTheChildren

He was an absolute legend! Comedians will be coming out to tell his story, wether it’s a subtle comment he made backstage or a story about going out with one night there going to be amazing! Thanks for everything you gave us Norm and continue doing. RIP

Don’t you think you’ve copy and pasted that enough yet?

I'm experimenting in downvoting you.


WU-itsForTheChildren

Oh no please how will make it


Flerm1988

Says the guy performing karma “experiments” in the wake of a celebrity death. Kinda fucked up.


WU-itsForTheChildren

Karma no, the person who posted the same post 15 times that’s why I did it, I have enough karma to live off of for the rest of my life oh that’s right their worthless, don’t worry I gave you an upvote !


moondes

Maybe don't turn a man's death into your copy-pasta experiment?
