Life shits on another good man....
    #2800977 - 06/17/04 01:18 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Late last year, around the holidays, a friend of mine got sick.  After some tests they found a cancerous brain tumor.  He had surgery to remove what they could and radiation therapy to get the rest.  He has been doing OK (considering what hes been through) for the last couple months.

Last week he was geting some tests and....bad news.  His tumor is back and bigger than before.  Doctors say there is nothing left for them to do.  He is too weak for any more radical treatments and this tumor is out of control.

Doctors say I will be attending my friends funeral within 3 months. :sad:

He is only 50.  Life is short.  Live it well.

I've lost several people to various kinds of cancer. It's a shitty way to go and the only advice I can give is to spend as much time with your friend as you possibly can. If you forget or get too busy or feel uncomfortable visiting the hospital, get over it and go visit him or you will regret it. Best of luck.

My condolences as well. But as Blu3 pointed out, a lot of the time, doctor's predictions are wrong.

It's really sad, these sorts of things. Who would have ever known at the age of 10, 20, 30, or even 40 that one would die before the age of 50?

To everyone again and again: drop any hate you have. It's extra baggage.

Good luck. :heart:

a lot of the time also, docotors tell you that you have a lot less time then really to make you feel good when the person makes it past their mark.

i.e. a 2 weeker will really have a month or so.

It helps everyone cope and make every minute count, which I suggest you do if he is a good friend. If I was in his shoes, I would want to be doing everything I could possibly do in that time period. Life to the max at this point.

I wish you and him the best (positive vibes blah blah blah)
