Both my grandmother's died of cancer. My Mum's Mum had a cancerous tumor in her stomach. Like I said in my blog thread. My Dad's Mum had lung cancer.

It is an ugly disease.

Sincerely, Kat.

I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Please keep my dad in your thoughts and prayers.
He has colon cancer and though it was caught early the treatments aren't helping.
He is very sick and his hemeglobin has gotten very low.
They are starting some experimental medications next week.
Thank you all.  :-*

Thanks y'all.
It's pretty scary.
Dad talked about beating it before, then he went to just maintaining now he is saying he just wants to out live my Grandmother.
So Hopefully the experimental stuff will help.
