Gilda Radner, the SNL comedienne who died of ovarian cancer in 1989, once said that there was nothing funny about cancer. Even back then, before my own diagonsis, I sensed the profundity of this statement, and I also sensed her courage and the magnitude of what she faced.
There is a guy on the Intenet that writes a column called, "Humor Your Tumor", and he claims to faclitate self healing by promoting a sense of humor. That's very easy for him to say.
However, in his column, he offered this quote by Abraham Lincoln, which I find to also be profound.

I was surfing thru the net as I always do for jokes to add to my collection to humor myself and email others. Then I happened to stumbled across cancer jokes in a link on a joke page. Damn has this world become so low that people have to to stoop this low to try and get a laugh from this dreadful disease. I found this disgusting and I wonder if they ever thought what may around the corner for their sick minds.
