Being diagnosed with cancer is something that many will face alone whether or not that should be so. Being in remission and discovering that others don't consider your survival is something to celebrate. It offers a perspective of one's own value which few would want to contemplate.,
In my experience, however, there was a more extreme example, being hounded online when raising awaremess of a human rights issue. It was about children who were considered of lesser value, disposable. They were not held or hugged.
