So sorry to hear about your loss! You are way to young to lose your 'daddy'! My heart goes out to you and your family!
My dad was diagnosed last July'11' with stage 3/4 and it is looking like time for hospice now.

Sending my sympathy and prayers for your peace. You know your Dad is now peaceful in heaven. I am so sorry for your loss. Stay strong and keep the faith. Some day we will all understand why these things happen.

I am sorry for your loss, I lost my Dad too last Friday (Jan 20th) and I am heartbroken.
This cancer is evil.

I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your father. It sounds as though you loved him very much. I can see that you are young and that makes it all the more difficult at 17. I lost my wonderful father in 2008 from hepatocellular carcinoma (primary liver cancer) and I am still at a loss, very painful for me even at age 56 at the time! My husband of 33 years was recently diagnosed with stage IV esophageal cancer with metastases to the liver and I am heartbroken. He is undergoing chemotherapy and it is a rough regiment. He has some good days and then others are not so good. I find it very hard to make sense of all of this. I am having a rough time emotionally, but I do realize that I am not alone in this. So many people are suffering in the same way. I do feel empty and alone but I do know that I have wonderful family and friends in my life to help me through. I am sure your wonderful father fought a good fight as I can see my husband doing too. Just know that you are not alone because people like me are out there too looking to be consoled and hopefully I can help support someone while they support me too. I hope you will take comfort in that your father is no longer suffering anymore and is definitely in Heaven with no pain. Please take care of you too !
