    I am 29 years old and I recently lost my Father after only a short fight with lung cancer. I know what you are going throguh and I can empathisize with your situation. Please, be strong, for him and your self. When you are alone, its okay to cry, I did. When you are with him, be a rock. Your strength will help him in his fight. My father had surgery and we thought it would all be okay. Prepare yourself for the inevitable now. I know that sounds terrible, but it will make his recovery that much sweeter when he wins his fight. It's best to think positive but to prepare yourself jsut in case. Please tell him everything you want to now. He'll appreciate it and you will too in the long run. Please keep me updated. I'd like to be a friend to you during your time in need.

    Hi, My dad died of small cell lung cancer, it will be 3 years in sept. I still can't believe it. He was my soul mate! We were so much alike, it was like we knew each others thoughts and feelings all the time. I wasn't able to see how I would be able to live life without him. It was the saddest, hardest, and yet the one of the most beautiful times of my life. He died six weeks after his diagnoses. In those six weeks there were alot of tears, I don't think I have ever been so sad. I didn't know we had so many tears in us. If, it is time for him to go, love him enough to say it's ok for him to go. Ask God to help you through this time. Don't be afraid to cry, or afraid to tell him your afraid. Go through this together. January 2000, I was also diagnosed with non small cell lung cancer (same as your dads), with mets. to the lymph nodes, and brain. I had radiation, chemo (taxol and carboplatin). I have been in remission for the most part, and I am feeling great! So there is life with cancer, you just need to keep living life. There will be good days and bad days, but for the most part good days. Think of all the things you have to look forward too in life. I wish the best for both you and your dad. loulou
