This hits a little close to home for me- I will certainly keep you & your family (esp. your Uncle) in my thoughts & prayers. My grandfather is about the same age & was just recently diagnosed with chronic leukemia, I think about him constantly now & know how difficult it can be to deal with sometimes. **HUGS**

I’m so so so so so sorry. There’s no easy way to handle that kind of news. Cancer often just doesn’t seem to make any sense or follow any kind of logical path. It’s absolutely unfair. Sending lots of positive thoughts to you and your family sweetie. ((hugs))

I am so sorry.  My mom passed of this when I was young and I know how devastating this news can be.  Cancer bites and there is no way around that fact, it takes so many lives.   ((HUGS))

You just have to wish the best and its OK to cry or scream, its not you who is sick but your whole family is hurting and that is so so hard. It is Ok to cry.

Cancer is such a horrible thing.  I’m sorry it seems all of a sudden things look bad.  My aunt died of lung cancer that spread to her bones.  She was 55.  Your family is in my prayers tonight.  HUGS

Aww, I’m sorry. Facing the very real possibility of losing a loved one is so difficult. My heart goes out to you. Don’t feel guilty for being sad, you’re hurting too and that is absolutely okay!

I recently lost an aunt to brain/bone cancer. Once we knew she was nearing the end, we rallied around her with all the love and support we could give. I truly feel that her being surrounded by family, and us celebrating each and every one of her remaining days helped ease her fear and pain. I have so much peace in my heart knowing the last words I said to her were “I love you.” 

That’s the only advice I can give you. Be there for your uncle and surround him with love. 

PRAYERS AND HUGS

I’m so sorry! Yes, respect their wishes not to blast this tragedy on facebook but DO vent wherever you can, to close friends, family, etc. 

I’m gonna say a prayer for your uncle right now. This must be devestating. Cancer is such an unfair and horrible disease. It can happen to me…it can happen to anyone.

And the thing about Cancer is even if you are allowed treatment, sometimes the treatment is as deadly as the disease. I knew a woman who had a tupe of lymphoma, her marrow transplant put her into remissiom, but she was left so ill and so weak, she died within months of her transplant. 

With cancer, you are just never out of the woods, until you are out of the woods. You guys were wonderfully optimistic for him, even though his last treatments were experimental and his cancer so advanced….kudos for being such a strong support system for him. All you can do is continue that now….as hard as it might be.

Oh no, I’m so sorry… *hugs*

This hit pretty close to home for me, too.  My FI’s mother recently passed due to breast cancer with similar situations.

It’s totally okay to cry.  You may not be the one with cancer, but he’s your uncle.  My thoughts and prayers go out to your uncle and you and your family.
