Have you ever lost a parent to cancer?

Lung Cancer treatment is the cure! - Although my father died of lung cancer but I believe that if we are vigilant in testing and bugging doctors to do specific tests can save lives!

The doctors believe when he was in Vietnam he was exposed to something called Agent Orange and that caused his first bout of cancer in 1990 and caused this one that killed him.

WILL YOU PLEASE STOP!!!! This is not a stop smoking thread! THIS IS THE LOSS OF A LOVED ONE! HAVE YOU EVER LOST A LOVED ONE? WELL HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF SOMEONE STARTED A CAMPAIGN AND BUGGED YOU ABOUT SOMETHING! THIS IS ABOUT LOSING A PARENT NOT ABOUT QUITTING SMOKING! MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS ANWAR!

I'm so sorry about your father. I have not lost a parent to cancer, thankfully. About 7 years ago my Mom battled colon cancer. She now has a colostomy bag but she is still here and for that I am thankful. My deepest sympathies to you. I know cancer is a horrible disease.

Thank you for the prayers. At least I know he is not hurting anymore. He was never much to tell people when he was in pain but I know he was! He isn't now :) Thats my solace!

No, but my dad has leukemia. He also has a heart murmer and asthma. I am very worried about him.

Leukemia is a form of cancer. The heart murmur and asthma make it even worse. Do not be afraid to get on the doctors back and bug the crap out of all of them and demand what you think he needs! If you need a friend I am here. DO NOT GIVE UP. I did not have a chance with my dad because we caught it to late. But you have a chance!

I've lost a mother in law (who I was close with) to adrenal cancer and my stepmom to lung cancer with whom I was also close with...It's devastating, heartbreaking, and painful, but I learned to move on, I go through bouts of really missing them and crying, but that's healthy and normal. It's very hard to get over the impact, but I think of it as; they wouldn't want you to wallow in pity over them, they would want you to be happy and move on with your life......

Oh dear I am so sorry. Believe me I know how hard it is. I went through a bad case of what they call delayed grief. crying at the drop of a hat and all of that bad stuff! If you ever want to talk I am here!**I am here for you!**

I am very sorry for your loss. I have not lost a parent to cancer, but my Father IS going through cancer right now. He has been battling it for about 1 1/2 years now. Cancer is a terrible thing.

I wish your father a soeedy recovery! We did not even have time with him. From beginning to end it was 3 weeks. The problem is we caught it to later. I feel horrible because I knew something was wrong with him for a long time. But the doctors would not listen!
