    i'm curious about this Heart cancer your friends mom had. I work in cancer care, and have never seen this. 99.99999999% of all heart tumors are benign. Was she being studied?


    very interesting indeed

    This is true.

  • Can't cure cancer. Too much money to be made it seems.
    Progress is not made by everyone joining some new fad,
    and reveling in it's loyalty. It's made by forming coalitions
    over specific principles, goals, and policies.

    I don't know the details. I know she was in Maryland for a month before passing, getting treatment. I don't know if she was in a study, though if her case was that rare I imagine she was.

    The service is Saturday, hopefully I'll be in touch with her son again before that. If I get details I'll try to remember to fill you in.

    Also you didn't include FUCK CANCER in your post. That's not allowed here...

    Fuck Cancer.

    Fuck it in the ass.

    1 in 3 people... that scares the shit out of me. Not for myself, I'm not afraid of death. My loved ones though... :(

    my bad, FUCK CANCER........I've got a strong family history of it as well...kinda why I went into this career. Cure rates are getting higher every year...and I've taken part of some truly miraculous cures at my job. More funding and research is always needed though.

    i know... sun was the 2 year anniversary of my grandpappy's death, he died of cancer.

    sadly too, with all the technology and shit today it seems like we're actually hindering more than helping.... pollution, aspertame, cell phones, tanning booths....

    My cousin had it at the same age. My uncle died from Prostate cancer. My aunt from breast cancer. I never knew one grandma because cancer took her away when my mom was in her teens. Currently my other grandma has cancer. My aunt(my mom was a triplett, and now all three have had cancer) was diagnosed last week with breast cancer. The list goes on, and it's truly terrible. But with early findings, quick visits, and early treatment, and most of all a good spirit and support, it can be beaten.

    This is an incredibly disturbing family history. You, my friend, should start all of your cancer screening early and I would even go so far as to suggest genetic counseling.

    I know I was thinking that too, heart cancer?! I've never heard of that! That sounds particulary awful and I am sorry to hear that! Wow.

    Ok, f-u to the big C. My stepfather died from non hodgkins lymphoma and my grandmother died from lung cancer and emphysema. my father survived a thymoma though.

    My ex's family has a similar history....nearly every aunt or uncle (and a few cousins) has had some form, all from their 30`s - 50`s...she lost her mom (early 50's), now her sister (35) has multiple cancers...I really worry about my kids :(

    FUCK THAT MOTHERFUCKING CANCER!!!!

    I had that phone call "You've got cancer" luckily it was basal skin cancer and easily removed. I have a wonky scar and dent on my head...scary as hell though to hear that phrase...thrilled as fuck that it was taken care of easily. All my good thoughts go out to everyone else dealing with it!

    Cancer is a fucking bitch. It is so scary, cuz I see so many younger people getting skin cancer..breast cancer, etc. I seen too many people suffer from this disease. I don't know if there ever will be a cure but I hope to see one in my lifetime.

    I am sorry about your friend :(

    This is so sad really, and not just cancer, aids too!!! and hunger in thirld world countries. Its scary to reads this thread because almost everyone is related to cancer somehow, its so sad. And trillions spent in Iraq. But its all about people in powrer, politicians, stocks, it sucks, it really sucks. jets that fly without pilot, inteligent missiles, inteligent siuts, damaging misiles that cost a million dollars eachl, but there is no cure for aids or some types of cancer?? sad

    Cancer is a sneaky bastard that waits in silent mockery to all of us
    Just when we think that we are living a healthy life
    It comes around and says, "fuck you. all that you thought was living; eating and not getting sick, hair, healthy color (vs. gray caner skin), youth,etc. is a lie........"

    So I say "fuck you back, cancer" you can kill but not destroy.

    those we love live on forever.

    I Lost my Dad back in December( 1 week before X-Mas) he was only 55. If there was anyone who I thought this terrible disease would leave alone, it was him. Active guy, non-smoker, casual drinker, healthy diet, great outlook on life etc. Goes to show,as people this is an issue we all can get behind.

    I lost mine 15 years ago at 63 yrs old of cancer as well. he smoked since he was 12 years old, so I know that you could say he inflicted this upon himself and for those who do not do a thing and still get this, I am sorry really, but still I was sad.

    He got his lung removed to try to live two years treatment free as opposed to 4 years with chemo/radiation. But 7 days post op, he died of pneumonia, a side effect of the surgery that he was told may occur.

    I can remember how scared he was before he had the operation and how he walked around with this pitiful dictionary that showed a set of lungs to show us what the doc said he was going to do. I had always thought that if someone is dying and they are at peace with it, then we can find a way as well to be. But the thing is sad when the person is scared to theie wits end, and does not feel they are ready to die and we can just watch and hope we are some comfort to them.

    Im real sorry

    My Dad had Gliblasoma(prob spelt wrong,brain cancer). I know people who have smoked 50+ years, and nothing. Who knows anymore where/how this shit starts.I gave up smoking before my Dad was diagnosed last May, started again due to stress. I'd like to stop again soon(expensive,hell it cant be good for you) One thing I've learned is you cant play the what if game, you'll go crazy. Little Kids get Cancer, what did they do to deserve this, that kept my Pops strong(not a why me guy) I'm sure deep down inside he was hurting big time.

    He was a few years from retiring(Kids grown, on our own) He and my Mom had many plans. That is what gets me the most. He sacrificed a whole lot for us.When he passed, the months leading up to it were surreal.Now it is for me, a bit harder. I almost expect him to come home.

    Got to keep on keeping on. I hope I get to hear Light Years at one of the shows I'm attending. It would mean a lot

    Peace

    oh. man, hugs to you truly.

    please know that as a parent even if we have dreams for life when we are free again from needing to be parents full time, there is no call greater or pleasure deeper than that of raising our kids. many sacrifices are made, surely, but there is a joy that you can't even call work even during the hard times as a parent. and I have teenagers and an 11 year old, so even all four of them, all that can happen, and they are still the coolest people I would choose to be around in a heartbeat.

    miss your dad, it's a sign of your love but don't for a minute think you wasted any of his life by his sacrifices. you probably added more joy than sacrifice.

    We had I real special relationship. During his treatments we would watch a bunch of comedy stuff, and talk for hours. I live on my own, when he was sick I couldn't stand to be that far away for too long.He fought like hell.

    I know his dedication to us wasn't all for not. He took great pride in seeing us happy. But I still feel it was his turn to relax, and enjoy life. The small stuff doesn't bother me that much at all anymore.I know what is Important.Your Kids are lucky to have a parent like you.
