Jerry Doyle, actor

My veins are filled, once a week with a Neapolitan carpet cleaner distilled from the Adriatic and I am as bald as an egg. However I still get around and am mean to cats.

John Cheever, writer

Anjelica Huston, actress

Researches at Yale found a connection between brain cancer and work environment. The No. 1 most dangerous job for developing brain cancer? Plutonium hat model.

Jimmy Fallon, comedian

I wish I had the voice of Homer to sing of rectal carcinoma.

J.B.S. Haldane,

My main frustration is the fear of cancer from low dose radiation, even by radiologists.

John Cameron, scientist

In some cases radiation reduces the incidence of cancer.

John Cameron, scientist

When are we going to say cancer is cured? I'm not sure when that will happen, if that will happen because cancer is a very slippery disease and it involves a vast number of cells in the body and those cells are continually mutating.

David Baltimore, scientist

Fighting terrorism is not unlike fighting a deadly cancer. It can't be treated just where it's visible - every diseased cell in the body must be destroyed.

David Hackworth, soldier

Len Dawson, athlete

If you're unable to catch it in time, the cancer can spread to the lymph nodes and at that point, the cancer is essentially incurable, but that doesn't mean your condition can't be improved.

Len Dawson, athlete

With Alexander's cancer, I was definitely brought to my knees for the first time because of the fear factor.

Cathy Freeman, athlete

A quick example of that is a woman who said she'd been healed of throat cancer where the faith healer admitted he touched her on the forehead.

James Randi, entertainer

I have been extremely lucky; I am a person who is currently living with a cancer that is under control.

Geraldine Ferraro, politician

All the things that human beings suffer from are how their environment treats them, and how the elements of their planet affects their mind and body - like radiation, cancer, and all.

Ornette Coleman, musician

My job is writing. I get paid to do it. When was the last time you heard someone challenge a doctor for making money off of cancer?

Once colon cancer becomes symptomatic, nine times out of ten it is too late.

Kevin Richardson, musician

With all of the holiday cheer in the air, it's easy to overlook the ingredients in the foods. Ingredients such as salt, sugar, and fat - all of which leads to diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, strokes, heart disease, and cancer.

Lee Haney, athlete

A systemic cleansing and detox is definitely the way to go after each holiday. It is the key to fighting high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, and other health-related illnesses.

James Randi, entertainer

Like every aspect of cancer I've weathered thus far, today's experience was not at all demoralizing, expensive or humiliating. No, it was just plain fun.

April Winchell, actress

As a public official and being so highly visible, I have a responsibility to make it very clear that those people who will have cancer at one point in their lives will be able to function.

Lindy Boggs, politician

I have friends who are going through chemotherapy, and they make the darkest, most hideous cancer jokes you've ever heard.

Kathy Griffin, comedian

People saw me as being heroic, but I was no more heroic than I was with other injuries I had, like the lacerated kidney I suffered during the 1990 World Series. It's just that people haven't known anyone with a lacerated kidney, but everyone can relate to someone with cancer.

Eric Davis, athlete

Nothing I did contributed to me having cancer, so I can't sit back and say, 'Oh why me.' Why not me? Why does tragedy always have to hit someone else?

Eric Davis, athlete

I'm no different than others with cancer. I just happen to play professional baseball. I'm part of those statistics that cancer has touched as well.

Eric Davis, athlete

I was hitting .360 when I was diagnosed. I didn't forget how to play while I was recovering. I don't know if the cancer is gone for good. I don't think anyone ever knows, but no one is going to steal my joy for as along as I'm able to play baseball.

Eric Davis, athlete

I know people are pretty well embarrassed just at the mention of colon cancer. Sticking a tube in you to find out what's wrong is not a nice thing. But I can tell them, a 30- or 40-minute test is worth it. We have to make them feel more comfortable about getting screened.

Eric Davis, athlete

I'd never heard of colon cancer. Baseball wasn't even important to me. I have a wife and two girls. That's what was important. The doctors told me and all I could say was, 'When are we going to get this thing out?'

Eric Davis, athlete

I will be a role model for cancer patients for the rest of my life. But you know what? When I was getting chemo, those people inspired me.

Don Drysdale, athlete

Breast cancer deaths in America have been declining for more than a decade. Much of that success is due to early detection and better treatments for women. I strongly encourage women to get a mammogram.

Larry Craig, politician

We need cancer because, by the very fact of its insurability, it makes all other diseases, however virulent, not cancer.

Gilbert Adair,

The truth is, if you asked me to choose between winning the Tour de France and cancer, I would choose cancer. Odd as it sounds, I would rather have the title of cancer survivor than winner of the Tour, because of what it has done for me as a human being, a man, a husband, a son, and a father.

Lance Armstrong, athlete

Without cancer, I never would have won a single Tour de France. Cancer taught me a plan for more purposeful living, and that in turn taught me how to train and to win more purposefully. It taught me that pain has a reason, and that sometimes the experience of losing things

Lance Armstrong, athlete

Nobody knows what the cause is, though some pretend they do; it like some hidden assassin waiting to strike at you. Childless women get it, and men when they retire; it as if there had to be some outlet for their foiled creative fire.

W. H. Auden, poet

Cancer is a curious thing...Nobody knows what the cause is,Though some pretend they do;It's like some hidden assassin,Waiting to strike at you.Childless women get it,And men when they retire.It

W. H. Auden, poet

I don't think makeup is rocket science or a cure for cancer.

Cindy Crawford, model

Cancer patients are lied to, not just because the disease is (or is thought to be) a death sentence, but because it is felt to be obscene -- in the original meaning of that word: ill-omened, abominable, repugnant to the senses.

Susan Sontag, author

Dedicated researchers seek better treatments and cures for diabetes, kidney disease, Alzheimer's and every form of cancer. But these scientists face an array of disincentives. We can do better.

Michael Milken, criminal

Our purpose in this project is to begin to turn that fear of cancer, actually America's greatest fear, into a future, not only free of fear, but full of hope.

Andrew von Eschenbach,

If we had pursued what President Nixon declared in 1970 as the war on cancer, we would have cured many strains. I think Jack Kemp would be alive today. And that research has saved or prolonged many lives, including mine.

Arlen Specter, politician

Progressivism is the cancer in America and it is eating our Constitution, and it was designed to eat the Constitution, to progress past the Constitution.

Glenn Beck, journalist

And I'll tell you, honestly, folks that I talk to, the 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in America, that I am one of, understand that we're done with insurance companies dropping us or denying us coverage because of - because we have a preexisting condition.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, politician

I have to admit, like so many women, I always knew there was a chance. But like so many women, I never thought it would be me. I never thought I'd hear those devastating words: 'You have breast cancer.'

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, politician

People used to say everyone knows someone who's had breast cancer. In the past few weeks, I've learned something else: Everyone has someone close to them who has had breast cancer.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, politician

Breast cancer is not just a disease that strikes at women. It strikes at the very heart of who we are as women: how others perceive us, how we perceive ourselves, how we live, work and raise our families-or whether we do these things at all.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, politician

Every woman needs to know the facts. And the fact is, when it comes to breast cancer, every woman is at risk.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, politician

I am very proud to be a part of the Livestrong Foundation. I am maybe only a member but I give everything I can to be sure that people understand that cancer is a disease for everybody - not only in France, in Europe, in Asia, it is all over the world. We must fight together, we must make something to fight the cancer, we must Livestrong.

Greg Akcelrod, actor

I think that it is our intention to deny cancer any control over us.

Elizabeth Edwards, lawyer

Jealousy... is a mental cancer.

B. C. Forbes, journalist

The chemotherapy was very peculiar, something that makes you feel much worse than the cancer itself, a very nasty thing. I used to go to treatment on my own, and nearly everybody else was with somebody. I wouldn't have liked that. Why would you want to make anybody sit in those places?

Maggie Smith, actress

Now I'm being blamed not only for anorexia but for lung cancer. - On being a social smoker.

Kate Moss, model

To other Canadians who are on journeys to defeat cancer and to live their lives, I say this: please don't be discouraged that my own journey hasn't gone as well as I had hoped. You must not lose your own hope.

Jack Layton, politician

We're going to raise a lot of money for cancer awareness, give some to the American Cancer Society and hopefully make a big difference.

LL Cool J, musician

When I meet people who say - which they do all of the time - 'I must just tell you, my great aunt had cancer of the elbow and the doctors gave her 10 seconds to live, but last I heard she was climbing Mount Everest,' and so forth, I switch off quite early.

Christopher Hitchens, author

I'm not resigned, but I'm realistic too. The statistics in my case are very poor. Not many people come through esophageal cancer and live to talk about it, or not for long. And the other wager is, the part of the wager, it's a certainty you'll have a terrible time and you may wish you were dying because it's an awful process.

Christopher Hitchens, author

It's not at all good when your cancer is 'palpable' from the outside. Especially when, as at this stage, they didn't even know where the primary source was. Carcinoma works cunningly from the inside out. Detection and treatment often work more slowly and gropingly, from the outside in.

Christopher Hitchens, author

My father had died, and very swiftly, too, of cancer of the esophagus. He was 79. I am 61. In whatever kind of a 'race' life may be, I have very abruptly become a finalist.

Christopher Hitchens, author

When I hear a guy lost a battle to cancer, that really did bother me, that that's a term. It implies that he failed and that somebody else that defeated cancer is heroic and courageous.

Norm MacDonald, actor

Families fighting childhood cancer should not have to worry about where they're going to get the next dose of the drug they need to save their child's life.

Amy Klobuchar, politician

One of the things we've always tried to do is help others with our story. Whether it's with the infertility issues, whether it's with the breast cancer, we said we're gonna turn these negatives into positives. And if we can help others by sharing our story, then it's worth it.

Bill Rancic, businessman

This was our last stop. This was it. We had those two embryos that we had banked prior to learning about the breast cancer, and with the medicine she was on, this was our last effort. The prayers were answered.

Bill Rancic, businessman

When I went public with my breast cancer diagnosis six weeks ago, the overwhelming outpouring of love, prayers and support really helped me heal faster. I want to make sure to thank everyone.

Giuliana Rancic, journalist

I have a new found respect for women who have been through breast cancer and this surgery.

Giuliana Rancic, journalist

For me it was just more important to get the cancer out. With the double mastectomy I now have less than one per cent chance of getting it back, otherwise it was 20, 30 or 40 per cent chance and for me it wasn't worth it.

Giuliana Rancic, journalist

I started realizing I could be an example for women to not just be aware of breast cancer but to act on it, to make an appointment, to give themselves an exam.

Giuliana Rancic, journalist

Through my attempt to get pregnant through IVF, we sadly found out that I have early stages of breast cancer. It's been a shock.

Giuliana Rancic, journalist

I have six sisters and two beautiful daughters - that's eight women who mean the world to me. I support the Entertainment Industry Foundation and Lee National Denim Day because they fund programs that are making huge strides in breast cancer research and support.

Felicity Huffman, actress

Cancer affects everyone, and it's up to all of us to support the important research that can one day make a much sought-after cure a reality.

Angie Harmon, model

I was at number one in Australia with both my album and my single. And then I was told I had cancer. I thought, 'What a strange turn of events.'

Delta Goodrem, actress

Hodgkin's is serious and I don't want to be dismissive about it, but there are people who have gone through much worse and lost their lives to cancer.

Delta Goodrem, actress

I've kind of got an out in cancer. It keeps things in perspective for me.

Eric Shanteau, athlete

I don't know what cancer did to me but I put on probably 10 pounds of muscle and got a lot stronger in the weight room and during our dry-land stuff.

Eric Shanteau, athlete

After my cancer diagnosis, I really took my swimming to a new level.

Eric Shanteau, athlete

My goal is people associate November with COPD awareness month as much as they notice October with breast cancer and pink. That'd be a great thing if it happened. The fact that COPD kills more people than breast cancer and diabetes put together should raise some red flags.

Danica Patrick, celebrity

I began by telling the president that there was a cancer growing on the presidency and that if the cancer was not removed the president himself would be killed by it.

John Dean, lawyer

Human beings will be happier - not when they cure cancer or get to Mars or eliminate racial prejudice or flush Lake Erie but when they find ways to inhabit primitive communities again. That's my utopia.

Kurt Vonnegut, author

I'm sure it really is hard to be an oncologist, and actually, more and more people are surviving cancer.

Marcia Wallace, actress
