My grandpa had cancer also... it was scary. I'm sure it'll be okay though. Stay happy [img]smile.gif[/img] and hope for the best.

Both my grandfathers died from cancer before I was born, but I've had uncles die from cancer, too.

That really sucks.

Cancer is not pretty. 4 years ago I lost my father because of lung cancer.

We can only hope he pulls through.

I heard somewhere that they did a test where they had two groups of ill people. One group had people pray for them and the other group didn't. The group that was being prayed for had a better recovery rate. If we all pray for Douglas's grandfather, mabye he'll pull through.

My own grandfather(from my fathers side) had cancer too a year ago or so. Thankfully, he has recovered and is better now.

Hmm. So, if you're a loner who has no friends or family, you're pretty much screwed? I'm atheist, but if I believed in God, I wouldn't think he'd work that way...

My dad actually had cancer not too long ago. It was successfully treated though. Still a scary thought, thinking I could have lost my dad.

Well, last week, he suddenley took a turn for the very worse and they were afraid he would die. My dad's currently in Michigan visiting him and he's doing very well.
