Cancer is a beast

I hate cancer.
Now let me tell you, I'm a VERY loving person.
I don't hate a n y o n e
but I do hate cancer.

On September 25, 2011, Cancer took away someone that I loved dearly.
My grandpa.

He had been diagnosed two years prior.
Colon, Mesothelioma, and Gastric Cancer.
3 times the pain.

One thing about my grandpa is he was a fighter. He never gave up.

I remember when he would play jokes with me when I was younger and would pull quarters out of my ear. --- He was silly.
It doesn't seem like he is gone. . . but he is.

To anyone out there that is battling cancer.
Do not give up. Be a fighter.
I know it's hard but you can do it.

If you aren't fighting cancer, but your loved one is.
Keep them lifted up, and make them as comfortable as you can.
They need you.

I will always remember the last thing I said to my grandpa.

Bye Grandpa get to feeling better. I love you.

Goodness, I miss him.

Sweetie I understand how you feel. I lost my mum to the beast 4 years ago, never a day goes by I don't think of her. Your grandpa sounds like he was such a fighter, an amazing person. So glad your writing about him

Hello, shemiahl,

This is a very touching article and I identify with it very closely. You see, in 1986, my mother died from pancreatic cancer and 10 years prior to that, my maternal grandmother died from colon cancer.

I respect and admire you for all of the strength that you displayed in this post -- and your grandfather, along with my mother and grandmother, are in a beautiful and peaceful place.
