    My uncle (34 years old) was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2012 and passed away in November 2015 and I hanged around with him all the time as he was going threw it. It was a big experience for me and I've learnt and grown up so much mentally and psychologically.

    I'm sorry man
    i know my uncle's mother-in-law has ovarian cancer, and so does a friend's mother, but they're still doing well
    i don't know the details obviously but they're both on chemo and my uncle's wife and my friend seem happy enough so that's good

    It is very depressing knowing that there is little chance of survival for those who encounter it. my cousin is 12 and she doesn't really understand whats going to happen to her in the future. Right now she's in a hospital for treatment yet she is living life at the fullest.

    I dealt with worse at much younger but it's a really tough thing to go through when you're a teenager. Surround yourself with supportive people, my friends really kept my strength up when my grandad got sick.

    My friend has 18 today, when he was 17 he went to hospital due to a broken knee. He never came back. He's pretty okay today but still sick .. When I knew for his cancer I had nightmares every single night .. Now it's okay I guess I'm used to it. Really hope he'll heal someday, he's so young.

    "Cancer" is not one disease, and the prognosis for some is considerably better than others. My husband had lymphoma 6 years ago, went through some horrible treatment and is fine now. Likewise, I have two male friends diagnosed with testicular cancer around the same time who had surgery and are now completely well.

    My uncle died of lung cancer just over 3 years ago. He got diagnosed with lung cancer 6 months before his death, unfortunately it spread to his heart and he was only given a few months to live. Cancer is a *****.

    Ikr the worst part is that I know this guy since like 15 years, it's so horrible.. When I see him I'm feeling like crying inside, but he smiles everyday, and do not want to see his friends crying. He's a good person , he does not deserve any of it
