Everyone with cancer, please step forward.
It’s official, I have cancer. Yes. Cancer…of the Head (Not Head Cancer!)
…Okay I don’t have Head Cancer, just plain ol’ run-of-the-mill Lymphoma. I get the final diagnosis on Wendesday, which will be my first appointment as a member of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Centre.
It’s funny, because I’ve never really cared for the ORCC. Infact, I find myself constantly mocking their logo because I believe it to be pure shit.
I mean…LOOK at that thing. What the hell is it? It’s a SQUARE with a TRIANGLE in it. Whoop-dee-fucking-doo. I suppose it’s at least TRYING to be good looking. But why is it pointing WEST!? West is the symbolic direction of DEATH (The Sun sets in the west, which symbolizes the end of life for literally HUNDREDS cultures around the world across the history of mankind, including our own), and I don’t think you want cancer patients pre-occupied with thoughts about death, do you?
Perhaps someone could come up with an alternative logo that I could print onto sticker paper and cover up the crappy logo throughout the ORCC? Maybe they’ll think it’s some kind of official change and just go with it?
