Hello, everyone! I am in desperate need of some words of encouragement or a friend to chat to on-line. I found out my father had renal cancer two years ago and had his kidney removed then. However, over the course of the two years his cancer has spread to his lungs and brain. He has tried several medications and radiation, but his cancer kept spreading. The doctor told us that this type of cancer is hard to treat and there isn't a lot of medications out there for him. My family just was told that he there is nothing else the hospital can do for him and they stopped all treatment. He has a few months to live and the rest of my family and myself are having him stay home instead of going to a nursing home. It is hard seeing my father deteriorate and slowly die. I would appreciate any emotional support anyone has to offer.
