Cheery-faced with cancer?

Jeff Weddle, who recently lost a Christian friend to cancer, shares thoughts on cancer and the church:
Several cancer sufferers have mentioned to me how hard it is to keep a cheery face around Christians. They feel they are letting down Christians and their prayers and faith because they keep getting worse.

This is undue pressure no one needs while suffering through a horrendous disease. Do we have any concept how rude we healthy, happy Christians are? It's better to embrace reality rather than try to force your happiness on others' sufferings.
I agree. Also, you might be interested in David Wayne's second entry on finding out he has cancer. The first entry, by the way, is simply sublime.
