    You're in my prayers.

    My dad has renal cell carcinoma, which is in the process of rapidly spreading. He's too weak for any more chemo or surgeries, so we have probably less than a year.

    I'll walk this path with you.

    I effing hate cancer. Lung cancer medical research is underfunded, because we tend to not give to lung cancer charities. We too easily assume that lung cancer is solely a smoker's disease, and we implicitly lose sympathy.

    Eff that. Cancer is a thief, and it should be fought & beaten.

    Best wishes for your father. I hope the treatments are relatively easy on him, and that they buy good time. Remember to do stuff with your father; don't just reminisce, create new memories.
    Our current plan for Universal Iron Lung coverage, just sayin'.
    Wisest. Retirement. Plan. Ever.
    Good thing the March of Dimes worked. How, why?

    Alternately, for those with a tool shed, ideas, or creative loved ones to tell..

    Well unfortunately he lives in CA and I live in AK. And at the moment there is no way for me to go because of my own medical issues I have (medically retired military). He's going to do chemo every 3 weeks. He can't do radiation again.

    And about lung cancer anyway. He is a smoker but the VA says his cancer is from agent orange. There's no way to disprove it so my step mom will collect his benefits for the rest of her life. Cancer has plagued my family.

    Uncle Cecil: lung cancer
    Grandma: leukemia
    Dad: lung/spine/brain cancer
    ALL 3 of my moms brothers got mild forms (if mild is logical) of cancer in 2011.
    Cousin: breast cancer
    Aunt: emphysema


    WTFWTFWTFWTF

    can I atleast have my pick of the cancer I get. (had to add some humor)

    Thanks everyone for all your wishes and prayers.

    Try to spend every day that you can with him.
    It will mean so much to the two of you,
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

    My thoughts and prayers with you. There is no easy way to lose a loved one.

    Serve my country, swear an oath to protect it, pay my taxes, fly old glory in the front yard, love and protect my family, honor the vets before me and help fellow americans in need.
    By definition my country now calls me a radical
