Cancer is a serious disease, but you need to see a doctor before thinking you have it. Learn why in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:32 Explanations: 3:42 Fast dialog: 16:09 Vivian: Do you see this lump? I’m sure I have cancer. Guy: Don’t jump to conclusions. It could be something completely benign. Vivian: I know it’s not benign. It’s got to be a malignant tumor. The cancer is probably at stage two or three already. The oncologist will probably want to start me on radiation and chemotherapy right away. Guy: You haven’t seen a single doctor yet and you’re already planning for the worst. Vivian: Of course I am. I want to be mentally prepared for the bad news. The doctor will do a biopsy, but I already know what the results will be. I’m just hoping the prognosis will be good. Guy: I think you’re getting way ahead of yourself. It could be something completely harmless. Vivian: I can’t afford to believe that. I have a family history of cancer. My father was diagnosed when he was 56 years old. It’s true he’s been in remission and hasn’t had a relapse yet, but you never know with cancer. Guy: That’s right, you never know. You could live to the age of 90. Vivian: You can fool yourself as much as you like, but I have to face facts – especially as sick as I am. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
