Well said, Bud.

Welcome, Pia. Like Bud said - lots of wonderful people here who can offer advice, comment or just a place to vent if you need.

Hi Pia and welcome. As bad as things may seem right now you have a lot of choices to help you overcome this fearfull time. A lot of those choices can be found right here with our friends. Like Sue..there are many here willing to share their experiences as carers and many of us that have cancer will help you with any questions you have. As soon as you know more detail about your pa's illness, let us know so that we can be that support for you.
regards, kanga n Jen

As the others said he's got a good chance. My dad was diagnosed nearly 5 years ago with stage III (you'll learn what that means) whith a bunch of positive lymph nodes. November will be 5 years for him and he's still doing well.
Think good thoughts.
