    Another one walking down the cancer road

    It's the road no one wants to be on. It seems like our forum has had our share of those who have had to go through this. My younger brother (age 52) is a double cancer survivor, testicular and thyroid. Yesterday they discovered that he has advanced colon cancer. I don't have to tell you how I feel today.

    He is tired of fighting but will continue for the sake of his family.

    I'm glad I can come here for love and support. I'm so thankful for all of you.
    Cyndi

      I'm so sorry, Cyndi. That's an exhausting, traumatic road for the whole family. I hope he has a good oncologist and all of you have a lot of support. Nobody ever really knows what to say that is truly helpful in a situation like that, because nobody really can help with words, and even though the road is similar to others the details are all different because of age, family, life circumstances, personalities. But we are here to listen if that's helpful.

        Oh, I am so sorry. Healing thoughts and energy for continued courage being sent to him. He is a truly remarkable person to want to continue this fight for his family. Please let us know if we can help in any way.

          My sister went thru that last year. She fought hard and is so far winning. My best thoughts for your brother.

              I know how difficult this time must be for him - and for the entire family. It's heartbreaking and depressing. Praying he will have the strength of spirit to continue the battle against this ugly disease.

                          So sorry. I know how hard it is. I think the number of families that have not been touched by this awful disease is a fraction of the number who has.

                          Sending cyber hugs your way.
