Hi I am a 26 year old step daughter of a wonderful man who is dieing of colon cancer. I am at a loss for what to do or say to my mother and step dad. He has stopped his chemo treatments about 3 months ago and now his cancer has caused another suspected blockage. It is really difficult to see someone who has had such an amazing in fluence on my life suffer in silence. My mother is also a brave one too. She rarely lets her emotions out and yet when she does I am at a total loss for what to say other than I love you. It is frustrating be cause I feel so helpless. They both try so hard to enjoy thir grandkids without letting the cancer be a factor ( the grand children are all 6 and younger) I guess I just hope to meet someone who has had a parent in this type situation. I am so lost in all of this. Mom and Dad do not discuss it with us other than rare bits her and there, I guess the not knowing is the hardest part. Is there anyone out there?????????
