My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I know just how it rocks the core of your being to hear cancer.
I had cancer in 1996. I am a survivor of it, 8 years in May.

Would you like cards sent to you or your father?

Hi Lainy,
I am so sorry that you and your family are facing this. You are most certainly in my prayers. My Dad was diagnosed with melanoma and has tumors in his brain, lungs and adrenal glands. I am praying like crazy. Very hard to go through. My Mom is a Lymphoma survivor and has beat it. Hang in there and know that there are prayers going up in your father's behalf.
Big hugs, Kim

Dear Lainy,

I am so sorry about your Dad's diagnosis. Just remember, hope and prayer are very powerful things.

Please don't be offended by this unsolicited advice - no matter what the cost in time or money - spend as much time with him as you can.

I am praying for a complete healing for him, knowledge and wisdom for his doctor's, and lots of strength for you and your family.

I am also sending you cards.

I'll pray for your dad & family. My friend's dad got lung cancer about 6 years ago. It was up & down for awhile, but he is still alive. His health isn't what it used to be, but he is not a "fighter" and doesn't make much effort. In spite of that, he's still doing okay. Please keep us posted!

How are you and your family doing? Dumb question hey, sorry! What do you say to that question. I also am praying the same prayers for you. Thank you for taking the time to pray for my family! Your right, we have to keep our faith strong! As we see there are many survivors! Miracles happen everyday!!

Lainy, I remember the shock I felt when my dad was diagnosed, but that was two years ago and he's still here and planning a trip with my mom in the Fall. That's two years so far with stage IV cancer. Just a small ray of hope for you, you don't know how much longer you'll have with him, you might be pleasantly surprised. It is hard to get over the initial feelings, but enjoy every minute with him you can.

Hi again, Lainy,

I had originally found this post the day after my Daddy died. I didn't want to tell you, so that you wouldn't be discouraged.

I am sorry about your Dad's diagnosis, but the doctor's had told my Daddy that he only had a few more weeks left back in August. He completely changed his style of eating, and he lived with very good quality for 8 months. He didn't go completely organic, but cut out all red meat and salt. It was very difficult for him because he's Italian, but he did it.

He was up and around and laughing and carrying on like usual up until 2 days before he met our good Lord. I truly think that you could attribute it to better eating and hope.

Just cherish each day, the good part that came of this...my favorite memories and closest times spent with my Daddy came after his diagnosis, and we were incredibly close before that!!

Keep your chin up and pray hard, I'm hoping and praying for you both and the rest of your family.

Lainy,
My prayers are with you for you, your Dad and your family. Take this time to spend as much time as you can with your Dad, and enjoy each day you are given. My Mom has been battling lung cancer for a year and turns 70 on Saturday. It has been a rough year but also a year of incredible memories. I am blessed to be able to spend alot of time with both her and my Dad. Know that I will continue to lift you up. Please keep us posted.

As someone who lost her precious Dad to cancer 3 years ago, my prayers are with you.

My dad had been diagnosed with Lymphoma in October of 2002. In January of 2003 he died ~ of liver & gall bladder cancer. To this day we're not sure what happened, how it was missed. He was supposed to fine ~ "totally clear of cancer" are the words we heard just 3 days before he died. I never got to say goodbye. So please please~ I know this is hard & you are sad, but just try to enjoy every minute you have with him.

I'm so sorry, I will be thinking of you!!!

Lainy-

My prayers go out to you and your family as your dad faces the days to come. My dad had lung cancer and died 6 years ago. I can say that the last year of his life, he lived it to his fullest, knowing that he would be facing his creator soon. He chose not to do chemo because the docs said it was a less than 3% chance it would even help. (this was a secondary cancer to lympoma which he had been diagnosed with 2 years prior) He had one year of fishing, traveling and spending time with us. I was able to say goodbye to my dad and was there the night he died. I still miss him so. Cherish every last minute....and take lots and LOTS of pictures. Even the silly day to day things....They will become a scrapbook of cherished memories.

Hugs, Laurie

My thoughts and prayers are with you. I know all about cancer. My mom had a brain tumor and she was lucky she survived for 17 years but the cancer did so many things to her. My dad had bowel cancer a couple of years ago and it was scarey for awhile for he is good now. We all had to be tested and we were fine as well. Thank god for that. Sometimes cancer can be beat. Keep your chin up and think positive. All of us here wish you and your family such good thoughts.

Good luck and keep your faith

I'M SO SORRY TO HEAR YOUR BAD NEWS, BUT DON'T GIVE UP HOPE YET.I have a dear friend who's father was diagnosed with lung cancer stage four, not sure if his was in his lymph nodes yet, but I think it was. Anyway they put him in a trial study and told him that he had 3 to 6 months no promises. We found out 2 days ago he is cancer FREE!!!!!! It wasn't an easy winter for him but he did it. There is always hope, stay strong in your faith!!!
Good Luck and God Bless,
Shannon
