I found out 2 weeks ago my dad has pancreatic cancer, he came home from the hospital yesterday after surgery and will have chemo in a few months. My mom was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer in october 2009 and has had 2 surgerys and chemo also. My mom was doing well for awhile and now her count is going back up, and she has not gone back to the doctor since she got that news. My dad on the other hand is in high spirits and ready to recover although he just had surgery. Finding out my mom has cancer was painfull, made me question alot of things including my beliefs, life and people in general. Now that both my parents have cancer, i cant seem to accept it this time. it seems unreal. they are both in their eairly 40's. im in my late 20's they seem so young. i want to ask why them, why now, but i will never get that answer. Its hard to talk about without feeling overwhelmed with emotion. Knowing something as serious as this makes you feel empty.
