a family history

my brother was born in 1958, had a knot on his head, around 6 months old, my Dad was in the Army, we was stationed at Arlington Va then, knot on his head was nothing but the tests showed liver cancer, back then they figured he was a goner, Doctors at Walter Reed removed all of one side of the liver and most of the other side and gave him 6 months to live, at that time they did not know the liver regenerated, he was also given liquid cobalt treatments, froze in ice and they did this, had burn marks on his ankles til he died from this, he to the much amazement of everyone survived, the treatments caused brittle bones and when he was a teen came down with a rare form of MD, my Dad died of colon cancer in the mid 80s , agent orange connected they say from being in Viet Nam, in 2000 my Mom died quickly of ovarian cancer, i quit my life and moved in to take care of my brother, he died a year later, lung cancer that was never diagnosed i guess because he had so many other problems, me, diagnosed with stage 4 bladder cancer year and a half ago, bladder removed, given a year to live, and been on chemo the last 9 of the last 12 months, still alive. Pretty pissed about the whole damn situation, and all the politally correct crap about smoking and alternativee medicine shit i see here. If the alternative medicines worked, do you not think that would be the major treatment for cancer? i am sure there are some benefits to some of this , but to promise people a cure is mean, cruel and unforgivable. So there, that's my story and my views

My sentiments exactly!  All of those who talk about alternative treatment as their only line of defense - all I can say is that they are either the biggest liars on earth or they are the luckiest stiffs in the world.

Keep up the faith and the treatment!  You will see light at the end of the tunnel.  Stay positive!  Survive!
