Not much to say. Mesotheleoma is fatal, 100% There is no remission for this cancer. They are going to try another chemo, yet again. I wish they would find something for cancer. I wonder where all that money goes that people donate for a cure

Stacy, I am here for you and like Kades said, if prayer helps know I am sending it big time. Your heart is big and so it gets hurt easily, but it is also that big heart that helps those around you feel better. I know that they feel your love. Take care my sweet friend. And know that as I watch the same thing happen to a dear friend, I am here for you any time. PM me if you want.

Aww, Stacy, I don't even know what to say. It's heartbreaking when someone is "taken" before they get to enjoy every stage of life. And watching those we love suffer can be almost unbearable. One small consolation in situations like this is that you know it is coming and can say and do the things you feel are important. I hope your BIL can stay relatively comfortable and enjoy to the fullest whatever time he has left. Big hugs to you, my friend.

Stacy, all you can do is be there and in the short time that I have known you here, I am certain that you will be. If you need to vent, you know where I am. Hugs to you and your family and know that I have added you to a bunch of prayer lists. I know with my father, prayer helped a lot. He lived longer than the doctors said he would by two years!

And that is exactly what I am hoping for too!! The last that I heard, was 6 months to a year.
