Default Cancer sucks...

When my mom passed away 15 years ago, she had been remarried for a while. Since her death weíve maintained contact with our step-dad mainly because heís the biological father of my two half sisters. We never had the greatest relationship but thatís how things go...

Found out this week that he has mouth cancer. Surgery scheduled a month from now at Emory for them to remove his tongue, half his jaw, and rebuild with part of his tibia. Heís 63 years old and will never talk again and will spend the rest of his days eating through a tube...

Please just keep him and my sisters in your thoughts/prayers if you donít mind.

Cancer sucks.

Sure hate to hear that rammage. It does suck, and it will touch everyone's life in one way or another at some point, whether it's you or a loved one.

Sorry to hear about this. Cancer is a horrible disease that knows no boundaries. Young, old black or white anyone could fall victim to it

Hate to hear that man. The fear of mouth cancer was what caused me to stop dipping. I’ll keep him, you and your family in my thoughts.
