I have had my share of being touched by cancer. Both my parents passed from cancer (MM for dad and lung cancer for mom). I have lost an aunt, a grandfather and multiple friends as well. I have personally dealt with kidney cancer this last year and am currently NED. Each time stepping up to the plate and dealing with what life has to test me/us with. This time it is different. My son's best friend who is 25 has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. His life has gone from ' be all you can be' to a future that is measured in months.
I want to help and support both my son and his friend. They are at a distance (about 6 hour drive). Despite having been touched by cancer before, I have never felt so angry and overwhelmed. I appreciate your listening to me vent and would appreciate any advise on how to support my son and his friend in the hours, day and weeks ahead.
