Friends of ours, more DH than mine, has been having prob w/ his shoulder for awhile. The pain was so bad, he had to go on disability(which he opt out of) and was doing test. Last week he was told, by a techinician(which Im furious over) that they wouldnt be doing all these test if it wasnt cancer. Right away, he started freaking out already telling others and his 14 yr old daughter. Ugh....its not official...why do this? Well....he went to the dr today and officially cancer. And the worse part is its on his spine, so no surgery can be done. Apprently, they notice a 3mm mass on his spine that went to 9mm a week later and spread to his shoulder. Im just sick right now...and to top it off hes seperated from his wife(my youngest's godmother) who last wkend filed for child support.

Cancer is a horrible disease. I'm sure after he meets with Dr's they will have some type of treatment plan for him. for him and his daughter.

I think you mentioned their marriage problems before and now this. How horribly sad. I hope they are able to get a plan of treatment and hopefully treat if not cure his tumor.

A friend of ours had a mass on his spine and it ended up being benign and treatable. I hope there was some mistake and it is indeed benign.

Cancer is so devastating. Even when curable or treatable it changes your life and the lives of those you love forever.
