Sigh… cancer sucks…

Yesterday, I found out that the father of a good friend of mine has cancer.  Stage III lung cancer.  The prognosis is not good.  Not curative.  Chemo can perhaps extend life.  CANCER SUCKS!!! 

I cried for my friend and his father and his family.  After my experience with watching loved ones with cancer, it is something that I wouldn’t even wish on my worst enemy.  It breaks my heart to see good friends about to go through Hell.  Like I’ve said before, I do believe that miracles can happen.  I hope my friend’s family can get their miracle.

To those of you out there who still smoke.  Can I just say one thing — STOP!!!!

About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
