My step dad started having pain in his back in Middle of June, Dr sent him to the Chiropracter for a few weeks which by middle of July we was in so much pain we went to the ER and they did scans but neither the ER or the Primriary doctors looked at the results for two weeks later. We found out at beginning of August that he was diagnosed with metastic bone cancer with one fractered verterbrae but that the bone cancer was a secondary and they could not find the primary. About a week into the radiation treatment The found that he had the Merkel Cell cancer and a couple weeks later they prognosed him with a year at the most with cancern. I have seen him sent to the ER a few times and its so frustrating to see something like this happen so quickly and now going from walking to bed ridden and hardly able to use his legs. I have been trying hard to stay strong when around him and talk with him about our normal items. I am scared and upset of the possibility of losing him, He is in his 50's and one of my step brothers was willing to help pay for treatment but then decided not to, it is so frustrating and I don't know what I can do.
