I will help you for money. I'm not convinced that you have cancer. Shouldn't you be in a hospital. If you do have cancer then take it like a man.

Soo.. What type of cancer? That my be more helpful, since there's a wide variety which have different options. Also,if you have tumor, benign or malignant? A little information would be nice, but I hope you'll get through it.

You're only 14, too.. Hope everything works out for the best.

^-^ you probably shouldn't have made a thread but if you want to talk about it in PMs i'll be happy to help if i can.

I'm really sorry about this happening to you! Especially at such a young age!
I find that people who develop a medical condition can often come out 'better' for it if they don't become too depressed. Firstly, try learning about the cancer. The more you understand something, the less scarey it can be. If you educate youself on it then you shouldn't be as scared since it wont be unknown. If you can explain to others, exactly what it is, then it will also make it easier for them to help you. ^-^
It's also important to talk to people about it. I'm sure you have friends and family who are worried for you and would like to help. Simply talking about it can relieve alot of the worry and sadness.
On the other hand you may prefer to distract yourself by doing lots of things! If you can then you should plan going places with people or simply meeting up with them ^-^.
I know it's hard but try to be as positive as you can. Hopefully this will make you appreciate health and life more so that you can truely enjoy yourself and do the best you can in everything!

I hope you get better quickly! ^-^ Do your best to smile!

What the hell do you want here?

This is an internet forum and we don't know you or your case.

At worst you probably lose a leg, lots of others have it worse.

Edit- here is something about happiness:
1) We often exaggerate in imagining the long- term emotional effects certain events will have on us.
2) Most of us tend to have a basic level of happiness which we revert to eventually.

Eros, that is the second time someone has recommended that book in the last week... If only I knew how to read...

Super Fly, I'm amazed that you've been able to survive for fourteen years already, seeing that the average lifespan of a housefly is 16 hours. But I guess that is what makes you super. But another thing that you should keep in mind is that you have five other legs, should something happen to one of them (something like cancer). But since you've already made it so far past your average lifespan, you should have expected some kind of misfortune by now.

I personally know many people in their sixties who have been diagnosed with cancer for fifteen years and have still lead completely normal and rewarding lives. Some of them were technically supposed to be dead ten years ago. Its like... anime. You know how, in anime, all the protagonists are orphans or half-orphans? Getting shit served to you by fate will either make you evil and full of hatred or... material to be the protagonist in an anime.

A new chapter has opened in your life, and things will probably never be the same. You can either choose to abandon your life and dreams and emotionally die right now and wait for the worst, or you can keep living like the rest of humanity, whose prospects are only slightly less bleak (overpopulation, aging, global warming, etc). I think you have great odds that you'll be able to still live a normal life, and if you don't, you'll only have so much time to be upset about it.

As a film student, I recommend that you watch Joe Versus the Volcano. And don't forget to take it easy for a bit to let your life adjust to the new change.

You have my condolences.
All you can do is live your life to the fullest. If it leads to apputation get bionic legs. If it leads to death leave no regrets.
A life half lived is a life not lived at all.

Awwww.. that was sooooo nice... and... a little humored.. awww.......

Anyways.... don't listen to those people about getting help about cancer on a forum.

Just please give us some backstory, is it minor? serious? mediumish? You should try and get some chemo and stuff :(... you're sooo young.... Cheer up though! My teacher has it... (almost gone but), it's only tooken him less than a year to get rid of it. I don't know if your case will be any the same, but don't be sad.. live life to the fullest and I dare you to talk in the middle of a crowd and yell "I LOVE LIFE WOOOO!!!!", you'll be happy :). Just be super... and..... get better, k?

Who goes to an internet forum for comfort? I mean you must really have crappy friends.

Sorry if that was harsh but...this is just weird.

If it's true..I'm sorry. Join a support group, I know for a fact they have information on them at the oncologist offices where you would have to go if you really did have cancer.

If not...you should be ashamed and burn in hell.

if ur fishing for comfort points, im sure the internet isnt the place for it.
