Do you know somebody who's died of 'smokers' lung cancer?

I never knew how bad lung cancer was until my father started dying from it.He has a tumor growing on his lungs and it keeps spreading even into his bones.The tumor is making it hard for him to breathe and eventually will stop him from breathing.

  • My grandmother is dying right now. the cancer has taken over 1/4 of her lung (probably more now), spread to her lymph nodes and has moved to her liver. it is so sad watching it. My grandpa died last August from complications of Parkinsons. Not a good year for us. My grandma quit smoking over 10 years ago and she gets cancer now.

    I feel for you. My grandparents are like my parents we are so close. my thoughts will be with you.
