Cerebral Knievel: Tranquil Hegemony: Lost an old friend to this just yesterday... yeah, fark it.

I lost my step father to it. took four months.

My condolences.

Yes and too all those who lost loved ones to this. I lost my paternal grandmother and an uncle to it. My uncle was bad because he went into remission but it came back. Damned dirty cancer, that.

Mike Chewbacca: Pancreatic and ovarian cancers are hard to detect and aren't usually discovered until far too late. My dad lived a whopping 24 days after his pancreatic cancer diagnosis. None of his kids got to see him; my parents didnt tell us how how sick he was. They said stuff like "he's on new pain meds" and not "the doc gave him morphine" which we obviously would have seen as a red flag. It doesn't help that my brother's daughter in law was about to give birth (Lucas was born 5 days after Dad died), I was moving from DC to Seattle, and my other brother was also moving. Nobody expected only 24 days.

My mother-in-law was diagnosed with late stage ovarian cancer right before Christmas. I doubt she'll be here this Christmas.

Peace and love. The human spirit is strong. my cousin was diagnosed with bone cancer when she was 22. they gave her six months. she told me she was determined to make it to forty. She made it to 38. But you know that was 16 years longer than expected. So the best to you and your MIL.

Leopold Stotch: Father_Jack: this is what happens when you behead Sean Bean.

One Does not simply...

Has Sean Bean ever lived through anything he's been in, ever?

Pancreatic cancer is very efficient in ending a life. I lost my dad last summer, and he went from having a tummy ache to a coffin in under a month. I try to tell myself that it's a better way to go than Alzheimer's, which savaged my grandmother for almost a decade and left her unable to care for herself.

/miss you dad

This was sad news news to read this AM. I hope he got to enjoy the whole love of a life well lived. Sadly I fear that it will be none too long before a ghost is born. If he makes it into the summer, teeth of his parts for future seasons can be prefilmed perhaps? Best of luck, Wilko (the actor)

AiryAnne: BronyMedic:

Pink is Breast. Purple is Pancreatic. And Alzheimers.

The color for testicular cancer is "orchid?" Really?

I mean, really?

My dad died of it 1 month after his diagnosis.

And it is underfunded despite being the deadliest cancer and the 4th leading cause of cancer death in the US.

So yeah, researchers CAN use your cold hard cash.

I donate to pancan each year.

His replacement?

moistD: 3) breaking both wrists at same time (cannot wipe yourself)

Did that one. Plastic bags to protect the cast. You deal with it. It was much harder to cut a steak.
