Aunt Has Cancer...I'm scared she's going to die - January 11th 2009, 04:47 PM

My aunt's cancer is getting worse. Last month I lost my grandma and my great aunt. I love my aunt. I can't lose her too.

I can only imagine how difficult for you to deal with. I'm so sorry to hear about your grandma and your great aunt.

Hang in there and be strong. I know it's hard, but it's really the best thing to do. Be strong for your aunt. Spend time with her and let her know that you care about her. I wish that I had something more to say that could help, but I'm really at a loss for words. I'm just so sorry to hear that you've lost these people and that your aunt isn't doing well.

I'll keep your family in my thoughts, okay? Take care and if you ever need to talk, just let me know. Be strong.

I am really sorry your aunt has cancer and I am sorry for your past loses. If you can spend time with her and cherish it. People do live many years after they are diagnosed with cancer but it depends on the type of cancer, the stage it is at when they find it, the treatment and the strength of the individual. Hang in there, and visit your aunt. Make her a card, bring her flowers, get her a book of something she is interested in and so on.

I am really sorry that you have to go though this, I know how hard it can be, I lost my grandad earlier this year. The thing that really helped me get through it was the fact I visited him a lot (although it wasn't that great while I was actually there, after I got home and after he died it helped me deal with it). Try and stay positive, and ask your family whats going on, so you are prepared for what might happen. If she does die, we are here for you, and same goes if she doesn't. Feel free to PM me anytime.

Well, my aunt and I never have been really close. But I still love her very much. I don't know what the doctors plan on doing now. I'm much calmer about the situation though. Let's just hope my aunt will be as bullheaded as she normally is.

Thank you for the replies.

Well why don't you find out specific details?

What stage is it?

Once you know what stage it is, you can look at what type of cancer she has and what stage she is in and look at mortality rates. From that you can make an educated guess.

You can also read up on what she will go through, and show her how much you are there for her. You can read up on what Chemo does to her, and what things can make a Chemo patient feel better. Bring her those things etc etc.

Sounds good, do research on it, she will be impressed by how much you care. And like I said, I won't list them, but there are some things that make people feel better after Chemo and radiation so you could try them and see if she responds to them.
