*sigh* I’m sick of cancer taking the people I love. We lost a good friend yesterday, a few months sooner than we all thought. He’d stopped treatments, but his heart stopped suddenly yesterday, his body weakened by chemo and treatments. I got the news not long after I put up my blog post yesterday.

I hate cancer.

Cancer sucks.

Fuck cancer.

I’ve skipped over a few stages, go straight to anger. Rage, even. Do not pass acceptance, do not collect bargaining or denial.

I’m sure grief will set in at some point, but right now I’m trying to be strong for his wife, also a dear friend. I’m also sure Hubby and Sir are bracing for the eventual hurricane that will be me when I get to the point I finally start processing it.

Fuck. Cancer.

    Tymber,

    I am with you FUCK cancer. I am sorry to hear you have lost another friend to cancer. I will be sending well wishes to you and your friend.

    I have been fighting it since 2011. I got news Monday that I have more and will start chemo again in 2 weeks. It’s a disease that leaves devastation in its wake. My children can’t deal with it anymore and it’s has not even been tough yet. My cancer is metastatic so there is no being done with it just controlling it and praying for remission.

      Kathy H – ((HUGS)) My dad just finished radiation treatments a couple of weeks ago so now we’re in wait and see. Our friend’s cancer started like his before it spread. ((HUGS)) Sending you healing thoughts and energy that you can beat it back.

    Tymber,

Its amazing to see ppl that have survived cancer. My thoughts and prayers to out to your friend and you. HUGS.

    I agree FUCK cancer! I lost my Dad to esophageal cancer last year, and too many family, friends, and friends of the family to count. The treatments are so rough and unpredictable. ((hugs)) to you and your friends and your family. I have not had cancer, but feeling so helpless watching it is so hard! Your Dad is in my prayers!

    I’m hoping that this is a disease that never touches my children, that they find a cure long before my grandchildren ever hear that word. I agree…Fuck cancer. Hang in there.

    I’m SO sorry for your loss. It must be an awful time for all of you. I’m so sick of that word. It seems to be everywhere. You’re in my thoughts and prayers as you struggle to cope with this. It’s devastating to so many lives. ((HUGS))

    Tymber,
    Please know that my thoughts of strength, peace, and love are with you and yours at this horrible time. I don’t know of a single person that hasn’t been touched by this evil disease (and its “cure” is just as evil and toxic!). You don’t have to respond to this, just know that even though I’ve never met you, you’ve touched my life through your awesome books and enabled me to get through some really tough times. I hope that my sincere prayers for you and your family help you in some small way too.
    ((HUGS)) Jennifer

    Hi Tymber, Haven’t been online for a few days as we are not at home. Did think of you earlier today…. this disease has already attacked one of our children and we are fortunate to still have him with us. You are right in that it sucks.
    I am so sorry for your loss and condolences to all – his wife, family and friends. and yes, at times grief and sadness is the price we pay for having people in our lives who we love. ((hugs)) Vanessa
