I've Lost Some of the People I Love to It

My maternal grandmother and paternal grandfather both died due to Cancer of the Pancreas, and bones, respectively. And then, there's another relative who dies due to Cancer of the Ovaries. Cancer really kills---and it hurts seeing these people's lives wither away. It all seemed so fast--that's how it goes.

didn't know cancers could last that long and re-occur countless of times...

My Dad gets skin cancer every few years on his face. He must have really done a lot of sun damage at some point. But he just gets suspicious areas checked out quickly and has them removed, and he's fine...has been having recurring cancers for 20 yrs now.

i wish the best for her. She'll survive that.

my dad had lymphoma 4 different times my aunt has had lung cancer 2wice and now my mom has skin cancer but well go together so she can get it taken off.
