ah hell that sucks
 
2013-08-06 12:41:47 PM
That is a cannonball of sadness straight to the heart
 
2013-08-06 12:44:39 PM

This is a repeat. Also, to spare people from despair.
 
2013-08-06 01:04:05 PM
That's going to make the honeymoon difficult to enjoy


Seriously though, that does suck big time.

Not really. It's a followup to the earlier thread.

May their surviving child never be afflicted with that horrible disease.
 
2013-08-06 01:24:01 PM
At least he got a lot of love in his little time. I feel terrible that he had such a hard time of it. Fark cancer.

The My Little Pony Killer: May their surviving child never be afflicted with that horrible disease.


I participate in St. Baldrick's every year with my son. One of the saddest parts (other than a kid getting sick and possibly dying of course) is the toll that cancer takes on the whole family. The depression, the alcoholism, the divorces, the ongoing issues with the siblings. Cancer has to be the evilest thing on the planet. It brings so much pain to everyone around it. We have a huge get together every year with the families we help and try to help, and so much effort is put into healing everyone involved. Basically we get a thousand people in a room together, cry a lot, and shave our heads after raising as much money as we can.

R.A.Danny: Fark cancer.


The one and only thing EVERY Farker can agree on.

I can't snark to this.

I hope his parents have a long, beautiful marriage if it helps fill the holes left in their hearts by that poor child's brief life and death.

They get to go straight from not having sex because of the grief to not having sex because they're married.
 
2013-08-06 02:34:07 PM
Sucks :(

Statistically unlikely, unfortunately.

Don't worry, there'll be plenty of Farkers willing to do so.

/fark cancer

Just two days after walking his mother down the aisle and serving as his parents' best man, Logan Stevenson passed away in his mother's arms.

Possibly the saddest sentence I've ever read.
 
2013-08-06 02:39:07 PM
The kid was probably a bastard anyway.
 
2013-08-06 02:39:51 PM
I saw the video clip of their wedding the other day.  Very sad indeed.  Even if the little dude didn't fully understand what was going on, he was there, and it was a really cool thing to do.

//I has a sad
 
2013-08-06 02:40:11 PM
Hope you're someplace awesome, little person. Wish we could could all give you a day from our lives.
 
2013-08-06 02:40:47 PM
Sounds like a misdiagnosis?  They originally diagnosed as AML and then latter on as Fanconi anemia.

Wiki says fanconi anemia is genetic, but both have bone marrow deficiency symptoms.

But then he also had kidney tumors.  Sounds like the kid was a genetic trainwreck.
 
2013-08-06 02:42:31 PM
I've been exposed to too much of the Dark Economics.

It's better that a child die early, before you and society invests much in them. I could draw up a chart about the amount of sadness to be felt based on age.

Infant-three, fairly low. Need to go make another.
Four-ten, moderate. They were just starting to get interesting.
Ten-twenty, higher. They had their whole life ahead of them.
Twenty-forty, highest if they have their own family. Nuff said.
Forty-sixty, high but depends on how they were doing.
Sixty-eighty, low. Hope you had a quick exit, but you've already lived a life.
Over eighty, zero sadness. They won.

As a father of five, this makes me very thankful that my kids are in good health.  I would hate to have to go through this with one of my kids, especialy when they are that young.

//oh and fark cancer.

God bless them.

I have a friend who is a nurse on a pediatric oncology unit at a major hospital. I have no earthly idea how she or any of her colleagues can function when heart crushing stories like this are part of the daily routine.

Because they find comfort knowing that they are the best hope these children have, and they do have some very happy endings. It takes a very special person to do that.

If there is any good in this, it is that this child was loved. Also, the fact that perfect strangers
banded together to help this couple have their wedding early so that their son could be a
part of one of the happiest days of their lives.

This is a mountain of truth.

/did St. Baldrick's this year, too.
//thank you, Danny, for doing it every year.

Man... of course they knew this would happen, but so soon? At least they were able to have him at the wedding.
 
2013-08-06 03:18:34 PM
Hope it was a hell of a bachelor party.
 
2013-08-06 03:19:54 PM
Did he at least take his dad out and get him shiatfaced before the wedding like a best man should?
