Cancer Sucks!

There's no other word to sum up how terrible Cancer is. I have seen family go through the terrible scare of Cancer and have even watched a friend battle Cancer with her young 3 year old daughter. Cancer does not discriminate. It's not a disease for the old. It doesn't matter if you're white, black, or purple. There's seemingly no rhyme or reason to it at all. Cancer has struck it's ugly head with a very good friend of mine once again. I watched her as 3 years ago she found out that her ex and the father of her oldest son was diagnosed with throat Cancer and then not long after her mother was diagnosed with Cancer as well.

I watched as she brought her mother to many doctor's appointments and dealt with a lot of trying things. Her mother pulled through and is in remission. Her ex pulled through and was in remission until recently he was diagnosed with throat Cancer again. My friend is in disbelief about it right now. I'm not really sure what the right words to say to her are or if there are even right words to say. I guess just be there for her when she needs someone. It is so hard though because there just seems to be no reason why one would stay in remission and one wouldn't. I would imagine the worries about her mother are being all stirred up again too. Really just plain and simple Cancer sucks!
