My aunt just called and my uncle has been diagnosed with Squamous Cell cancer. This is a skin cancer which in most cases is treatable but it wasn't caught until it metastasized to his lungs. There are two spots and they are considering it stage 4, non operable and terminal. My grandmother doesn't know. I've been asked to tell her since I am the considered the "strong one" in our family. We're going to tell her tomorrow am. Her health is VERY fragile so they didn't want to tell her over the phone.
For those that believe in the power of prayer - please pray. His name is Billy. He has a wife and 4 kids and 6 grandkids and he's not even 60.
And for those of you who don't wear sunscreen - man the risk just isn't worth it! :(October 11, 2006 - 2006-10-11
