Hi friends, I do not have cancer but my friend does. I do not understand his pain as well as I should. So I was hoping there was someone out there with brain cancer, that he could open up to. Maybe someone around his age in their 20 or 30's. All I can do is listen and say that everything will be alright, but that does not cheer him up. Please Help..God bless you all

I had brain cancer in 1999. The thing that brought me through this ordeal is having a positive outlook. People would ask me "how can you have such a positive outlook when you have brain cancer?" My response was "You can either have a positive or negetive outlook on this ordeal and the negetive would be no advantage to me".
