“Isn’t leukemia contagious?”

"I sexually identify as CANCER. No, not the zodiac sign. I’m an Aries, actually. Stubborn, angry, harsh - yet soft and squishy on the inside. Yep, I am one of those guys.
So, this is my one subject today.  C A N C E R. You see, the C-word creates so much tension you might as well just say “Lord Voldemort” instead."

The Swedish radio show "Sommar i P1" is very famous and has millions of listeners. My students in year 9 made their own versions of the radio show and the quote above is from one episode made by Elin Olsson. Elin is a fifteen- year old girl from Höör, who got leukemia when she was in eighth grade. In this radio show, she gives an amazing talk about her experiences of being a teenager with a deadly disease.  
It is okay to share her message - perhaps her story can help other teenagers in the same situation.
