Yeah. And for that, maybe a professional would be best. I wouldn't want to burden my friends.


That's true, i think that is best and maybe one or two really close friends

Wow, that's pretty bad, man. I hope she gets better and can go back to work/get on with her life soon.

That's good to hear. Things like this make you appreciate the things in life that you have, and make you learn not to take anything for granted.

My dad had cancer. It started when he was in high school (got better) and came back a few years ago. I know exactly how you feel. It was extremely scary having the person you love the most in the entire world suffer like that. All I could do was sit there and be as supportive as I could. Thankfully he is better now and has been cancer free for 2 years.

My stepmom has multiple sclerosis and it's just as scary. She was sick since she was in her twenties and only a few months ago did they figure out what it was (and after 30+ surgeries.) Unfortunately the best ting you can do is be there for that person and pray for the best.

I had a PE teacher that was always absent because she was taking a lot chemo sessions. Every time she popped back in class she looked like she fought a war and a part of her life force was sucked out of her. But heck, she definitely took us out and made us ran around the baseball field.

I had a patient that had a barrel chest and already had a testicular cancer in a very tender age. His tall and big bone. He liked to watch mma fights.

I have no idea what happened to them after that. I hope they are fine.

One of my friends was diagnosed with leukemia in junior high. The guy was a genius and his dad (a calculus teacher at the high school) is a Russian nuclear physicist who is literally also a rocket scientist who knows how to make bombs. Anyway, he was a smart guy and got perfect grades with no effort no matter what classes he took.

He vanished for a year and I saw him again intermittently through high school. It was only a few weeks away from graduation in our senior year that he finally died after the cancer came back twice. He had a full ride scholarship to Harvard set up and ready to go. He had been getting perfect grades in all his classes and scored something like 2380 (2380/1400) on his SAT even though he was in the hospital all the time. He was also the president of the chess club and some other club. In stark contrast, I was only able to max out at 2100/2400 on my SAT due to my craptastic math failures.

Unfortunately, I went back to Taiwan immediately after the graduation so I was unable to attend his funeral. I want to go pay my respects someday. Dozens of people from school were there. His parents were heartbroken. I don't think they ever got over his death.

Cancer isn't easy to overcome. Unfortunately I can't give you any feel good stories. I've lost a couple of great people to cancer, but my grandma appears to be doing well. Her battle might end up being one of those feel good stories you are looking for. Then again, it may not. My cousin was diagnosed with a form of leukemia as well recently. He seems to be recovering too. I've got my own hopes for these fights, and I'll wish the best of luck to your mom in her fight. I lost my mom back in '03 to something else, and saying goodbye is never easy, whether you expect it or not. Best of luck to your mom. Hopefully things work out for the best for both you and her.

I wish you and your family all the best at this trying time. A good friend of mine was diagnosed with Stage 4 lymphoma about a year ago. His is in remission although he is still undergoing chemo treatments. While it may be difficult, one of the best things to do is to try and remain positive.
Additionally, working in diagnostic imaging, I've had the opportunity to meet many people at various stages of their cancer journey and the strength they demonstrate is always so heartwarming.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who posted in response to this forum. I wish I could respond to each and every one of you.
Reading both good and bad stories, my heart goes out to everyone. For everyone that is experiencing cancer or has known a loss due to cancer, I'm sending good thoughts your way. Good and bad, these responses give me hope that one day we'll all be able to fight cancer and kick it in the butt.


Thank you
