P & PT's needed...

I just found out yesterday that my dad has lung cancer. He's been a smoker his entire life (but quit pretty much right then and there when he found out) and also has been working in a mine for well over 30 years so I guess it shouldn't be too much of a surprise, but still. They caught it super early - actually it was a fluke they caught it at all - he had a CT scan for a problem with his hip and they happened to see a spot on his lung. The mass is the size of a grape and they think they can get it with radiation and chemo.


I have never been super close with my dad but we have become

Hi Kelly,


I'm so sorry to hear about your dad. I lost my dad to lung cancer (also a lifelong smoker) last year and I know how hard the whole process can be.


I'm glad they caught your dad's cancer early and will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers in hoping they can eradicate it quickly and your dad can begin to heal and have many more years to grow closer

I'll be praying for you and your dad Kelly. I'm sure it's always scary to hear a parent has cancer no matter what the circumstances. Hopefully they caught it early enough and the chemo+radiation will work. (((hugs)))

Oh Kelly, I'm so sorry to hear that! I really hope that since they found it so early, they can cure it and he goes into remission soon!
I know how bad you must feel about not being able to visit him and stuff. But at least try to keep in touch with him via phone and e-mail. It will do him a wold of good to know you are thinking of him.
