So Scared

I know I am not alone, but I am feeling it. My husband has been battling aggressive cancer for the last two years. We have done radition, on our thrid round of chemo and all ready have gone through three surgeries. The last one being a major on were he has ended up with two bags. They told us it wouldn't come back for a 1 to 5 years. It only took 6 monthes for to come back and connect to a bone. He has lost so much wieght and they are not sure there is anything more they can do for him. The most sad part is he can't hardly eat soild foods.

Please help me help him..

Hi all,

My boyfriend has Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma, which he was diagnosed with about a week before we officially started dating (after he'd chased me for about a year).. So, I had to decide, knowing how hard this was going to be, if I should get myself involved in this or not. He's so worth it, so obviously, I chose yes.

6 months to live?

Wasnt sure which was the right catagory for this. I am an emotional mess as i am a very emotional person anyways who doesnt handle things well. For that reason i wont get into detail unless needed. I just had a question/opinion. I have never had a close family member have cancer so theres a lot i dont know. Well to get to my point...my grandfather was told he had about 6 months to live then literally 2 days later he got extremely sick..and in so much pain we had to take him to hospice. He hasnt eaten in like a week and is constipated and throwing up.

Childhood Cancer, coming to terms with it at 24, help?

Hey all,

I have always religiously avoided these things, but I think that's part of the problem and why I'm here. I need to know if anything of this stuff sounds familiar because I realize it's starting to hamstring my life a bit.

Background: Army officer, 24, from New York. Had ALL as a kid around 3, went into remission quickly but was in and out of the hospital a lot for a long time with the remedial chemo etc., think it finally ended around age 8.

I need to know if any of the following sounds familiar, is it a problem, and how did you deal with it?

Fear of the unknown

Hi all, my mum is now facing her third surgery to remove secondary brain tumours. She is terrified of dying - how it will happen, what is on the other side etc. Anyone have any suggestions on how to help her face this possibility and try to come to terms with it? Thank you
