Have you ever had a family member diagonse with a CANCER?
If so how did you cope with it and move on with your life and everything, or do you move on? just curious!

Seraphina (sunshine)
my nan, my 2 grandads, my sister in law, my uncle. its horrid but you just get on with life dont you

I think how you cope with cancer in your family depends a lot on what type of cancer, the location of the cancer, and the stage of the cancer. Some people have a cancerous mole, get it lanced off that day,and are home eating dinner with their family that same night. Others will die in 6 months. So I don't really think you can lump cancer into one category and expect people to react the same...

I have had it, it was an emotional time but you fight it and once your clear everything will go back to almost normal. I did get the occasional person being awkward, I just said "Is there something on my face? Apart from hair ?" most found it funny. The best thing to do is try be normal with them I liked it that way because I did not feel alien.

my granpa got diagnosed with lunge cancer last summer! i felt really bad but i realized there was nothing i could do but help him enjoy his life until he got better! my grandpa doesnt have it anymore!(thank God!) but anyways good luck and i hope it works out ok!

my friend was just diagnosed with it not to long ago. i cried when i first found out. it took me sometime to cope but i moved on and i was there for him whenever he needed me.

Yes, I have. My Aunt died from brain cancer nearly a decade ago. My Grandmother died just a couple years ago from breast cancer that spread to her lungs, back, and her brain. There was only a few things that medicine could do to ease her pain. I have a cousin with Leukemia and also a friend who has it too. Sadly cancer is all around people today and there is no cure for it and because it is an abnormality there can't be a cure you can fight it and it may or may not come back but the treatments kill everything not just the cancerous cells.

Yes my dad and my grandma last year but they both passed away.. i luv em. it was very hard for me to move on... but there is nothing more u could do. its also hard to forget.

if u have a family just make them feel comfortable.
Good luck!

my mom has had colon cancer on and off for the past three years. its a hard thing to deal with but you just have to keep moving forward and tell yourself that its gonna be okay and god is going to take care of them. a good way to cope is to maybe take up a hobby to take your mind off of it. if you have a family member with cancer i wish ya'll the best of luck beating it.

My husband was diagnosed with metastatic adonocarinoma of the lung(4th stage lung cancer) in February of 2004 and passed away, April 30, 2004. His cancer was inoperable and his only chance(as small as it was) of survival was to undergo chemotherapy. He never got that chance, as he passed three days before his first scheduled chemo treatment. The really sad part of this is that he passed on our daughter's 19th birthday. (She was away at college). I spent nearly half of my life with that man and I do miss him. He will always have a special place in my "heart". He gave me a very special gift-our daughter. Of any one day that he could have passed-he did so on that one day-as a reminder that I nor our daughter will ever forget him. Each year that passes gets a little easier. The pain of the loss will never go away completely. I am grateful that he passed in his sleep and that he did not have to endure any more pain. I as well as our daughter have moved on. I found a man who is so much like my deceased husband-and I love him truly. Nothing or no one can replace what I did lose.

My husband, father and mother had cancer. It was very hard and I grieved a long time. Eventually you feel a little better. I now have cancer at a stage IV, but I am doing okay for the time being and decided to do what I want now.

yes alot of them have.We just pray,have prayer chains started and hope things work out.My Mother would have died along time ago if it wasn't for the power of prayers.

Yes three years ago my mother was and four months later she died. I don't think you ever get over something like that but life does go on and so do you. I have 3 kids and back then they were only 6 months, 5 and 6. I had to be strong for them and still do. We talk about grandma everyday and look at the pictures we have around the house.

My mom had breast cancer. When she was cured from that she got ALS. We didn't have time to greive the cancer. She lived in a miserable state for a year and died. That's my experience.

my uncle has cancer..... just wished good luck and moved on

6 Weeks ago my Dad was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus. My best friend Tobias died of a blue nevus melanoma at age 24. I just kept a positive attitude and made myself more available to help him & my Mom out with anything they needed, from running errands to housekeeping, driving them to appointments.. Whatever. Just don't look at it as a death sentence. Medical science has come a long way, and there are advancements every day. Even if the type of cancer isn't curable, the treatments can buy most patients a lot of time so they can wrap it up, so to speak. Talk to friends and family and encourage everyone to educate themselves and help your family member make sound choices for their care and for leading a more healthy, healing lifestyle.

Yes. My son died from cancer a few months ago. He fought for three years and did very well up until the last month of his life. The cancer grew within 48 hours and spread quickly . .he was gone in a month.

We coped by living in the moment . . one day, one moment at a time . . because really that is all that any of us can hope for . .even those without cancer. There is no guarantee when it comes to living . . death can occur in minutes.

Human beings are amazing creatures . . even in the face of horror and the fear of dying you can continue to live . . and you can smile,be sad, get angry, cry, laugh, joke, and love each other. It is not what you expect at all . . you are human even when you have cancer and face a life threatening illness. It can bring out the worst and the very best in a person.

My sons type of cancer is almost always fatal. There are survivors . . but very few. I cope now by helping others with this disease . . . miss him like crazy though.
