    It's so wierd how things in life are so coinsidental . When I met my girlfriend her father had just beaten cancer in his head over the previous summer. Then 1/2010 he was Dx with colon cancer and is getting out of the hopstial tommorrow.

    Then last night, her and I watched "The Bucket List" and all i kept thinking was how would I feel if my dad had cancer.

    Welp,

    My dad called to me today and states he has a 5" tumor in his chest and they think it's Sarcoma. They have to biopsy to confirm.

    Nothing to do but sit back and wait and hope's it's nothing......

    I know how much the waiting and wondering sucks. That idle time will drive you crazy.

    thats one thing ive noticed through my life..ive known many people with cancer.
    if your down about it,dont care about yourself anymore,stress that you have it and think its the end then you will die of cancer very quickly
    but if you think positive,strive to make life better,and do all you can to live life to the fullest then you will either beat it,or live long with it and not even notice it

    Well, the radiation has killed 99.99 % of the tumor in his chest but now they found the same cancer in his back. he will be going for a treatment called 'infusion" starting next week and hopefully he should be better.

    F cancer
