I'm sorry. That's got to be hard to deal with :(

Unfortunately, there will be no remission.  This type of cancer doesn't really get "better".  They do the chemo to keep it at bay.  He has Multiple Myeloma, a form of bone cancer.  It is what the dad from "Everybody Loves Raymond" died from a few years ago.

I agree with you guys! My fil finished his 7 weeks of radiation for prostate cancer before Christmas and as far as I know he hasn't been back for a follow up check yet. I lost my maternal grandfather and my stepmom's dad to cancer. My grandpa had lung cancer (gotta love smoking) and my step-grandpa had prostate cancer that they caught in the last stages.

Decca I pray your fil gets through his chemo and it goes into remission for him.

Tracy I'm sorry for your SOs best friend and your great aunt.

Quoting deccaf:

Yes it is. My fil is currently undergoing his second round of chemo. It is horrible.

Quoting flutter523:

I wish this day didn't have to exist. I just watched SOs best friend bury his dad to Brest cancer two weeks ago and now my great aunt is suffering from breast, bone, & brain cancer. It's a crappy disease

World Cancer Day

Each year on 4 February, WHO supports International Union Against Cancer to promote ways to ease the global burden of cancer. Preventing cancer and raising quality of life for cancer patients are recurring themes.
