Definitely joining. I lost my grandpa when I was young, he died from lung cancer from working around asbestos for many years. It shattered our family. He was so charming and funny, he's very missed. Then several years ago I lost my grandma, she was like my best friend, she loved music, acting and arts. She really encouraged me to pursue art. She got breast cancer but overcame it then got stomach cancer, lived for an additional 6 years to dr's surprise. However when she got liver cancer, it took her life rather fast. It was shocking and I was devastated. Felt like it was just yesterday I had lunch with her. Recently I also lost my uncle to brain cancer. He was so strong and positive, even until his last days. It's so heartbreaking losing loved ones from cancer.
My heart goes out to those that have lost a loved one to cancer or is fighting cancer. Keep staying strong. Much love. <3
