Carpe Diem... Always
« on: June 12, 2020, 10:54:06 PM »
So just been reading a post of a friend, they are 55 They were diagnosed with lung cancer  4 years ago, and all the treatments have been tried but it's spread so that it is now 'long weeks, short months'. Fuck it.

My thoughts are with you. Lung cancer claimed my dad when I was a child....and umpteen other ex miners in my area. Hellish doesn't come close.

So sad: 55 is no age, and it isn't fair.

Sounds like a very special person, NS. My sympathy is with you.
