I'm not quite sure what to say. My dad was just diagnosed with cancer a couple of weeks ago. The type or stage wasn't given but it appears that it is NSC lung cancer in stage 3B. He has been told that it is inoperable and that all that they can provide is pallative care. My dad is only 55 and I am 28.
I'm having a very hard time dealing with his diagnosis. Deep in my heart, I believe he can beat his cancer but I know that the type of cancer he has is very tough to overcome.
Is there anyone else out there in the same situation as me with age and diagnosis? I could really use the support of others right now. I will also try to help anyone else who needs it but I'm new with this cancer thing.
