My brother-in-law is dying right now of lung cancer and it seems like he is dying of the chemo too. His life sure as hell sucks with the chemo.


Wonder what some people are smoking here…
Chemo is annoying …it doesn't kill you….cancer kills you.

Aggressive cancers actually are easier to cure than slow indolent types.
Cancer causes the quality of life issues….not the chemo.

If you are uncertain go to the onco appointments with your brother-in-law and also sign up into this forum

to the appropriate type of cancer. You'll get support and knowledge…not old wives tales.
I'm cancer free after 5 years and generally 60% of those with my type of lymphoma will be cured.

I might die of cancer…..50% of men will get it sometime in their life…..but it won't be what I had. It's gone…
I love people commenting when they don't know what the fuck they are talking about. :nono:

Report to the Nation shows U.S. cancer death rates continue to drop; Special feature highlights trends in HPV-associated cancers and HPV vaccination coverage levels
The Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer, 1975–2009, shows that overall cancer death rates continued to decline in the United States among both men and women, among all major racial and ethnic groups, and for all of the most common cancer sites, including lung, colon and rectum, female breast, and prostate. However, the report also shows that death rates continued to increase during the latest time period (2000 through 2009) for melanoma of the skin (among men only) and for cancers of the liver, pancreas, and uterus. The special feature section on human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated cancers shows that incidence rates are increasing for HPV-associated oropharyngeal and anal cancers and that vaccination coverage levels in the U.S. during 2008 and 2010 remained low among adolescent girls.

Prevention for preteens and teens for HPV is an absolute must…..just do it and make noise about it in schools etc.

Do not go lightly……:coffee:
