I admire those struggling in cancer but in my case maybe I'll just keep on crying, the others said just have faith in GOD but honestly if I am on their place I might as well forget that fact,and I might be suicidal to that effect or hysterical.,well, maybe GOD did not allow that to me because of these reasonings of mine,I am truly coward in facing that kind of situation.

My mother in law had bone cancer and she never once complained.Even though you could see the pain in her eyes she would have a smile on her face.I would like to think that I would handle it the same way.

Well off course when some one find out that they have only few days left with them they would be frighten scared ....... If it happen to me i would do everything that i can do within those few days and try to die happily because i don't want to see my parents feel the pain of seeing me dying

I feel it is a normal response to be afraid and or panic when told anyone has cancer. I believe the first thing that would come to my mind is I am dying. Although for some it can be very scary and sometimes do not have the courage/will to move forward and be afraid. I think that if it were me I would be so scared in the beginning but because I will instantly remember my children being left without me that I would somehow find a bit of courage to research and make sure I get the best possible treatment available within my means. Do not feel that you would be the only one many of us would feel the same.

It is very difficult to accept the situation but i guess we have to be brave and fight the fear that we feel. If we panic and just cry nothing good will happen but if we trust God, i believe that something might happen, a miracle. God has a purpose and everything, anything happens for a reason. Have a stronger faith and trust that your God is bigger than your cancer. and that He will take care of you. Be strong and divert your attention. Instead of thinking about your sickness why not think of other things that will make your life meaningful. Enjoy the time that has left, let say, you're given just a few months to live, instead of mopping, why don't you go outside and explore. do things that you have never done before, enjoy life with your family and friends. there's a lot to be thankful. your life is blessing to everyone. Be brave!
