<p>Hello all,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Bad news.  Here's the latest update on my Brother's condition:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>"I met with the oncologist today and the results are very clear: I have recurrent metastatic cancer in lymph & lungs. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>The cancer is too disseminated to hold out any hope for surgery. My best bet to manage things now is to start back on chemo.  We'll do a few cycles, do another scan, and go from there.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm scheduled to begin again next week. We may reschedule in order to explore clinical trials, but for the moment that looks like the best (least bad) option."</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Cancer sucks.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>HJ</p>

I am new here but my heart hurts for you. I had a friend pass less<br><br>
than a month ago. It hurts like hell.<br><br><br><br>
Reminder for everyone, cancer or no-- if you have something you want to tell<br><br>
someone but are too shy or uncertain--please share it with them, especially if it is good and kind and will encourage and uplift--please please say it to them. Because once it is too late you can never get that time back.<br><br><br><br>
Learn from mistake and pain, please.<br><br><br><br>
