    My brother has the same exact thing. At the moment he's fighting it with Chemotherapy, good nutrition and a lot of love and support from everyone around him.

    I'm sorry about your friend. You just have to be there and support your friend with lots of love, and goodtimes. Hopefully he will overcome it. Best of luck to you, and your friend. He is now in my thoughts and prayers.

    Take care! =) *HUGS*

    Not much I can say will take away the pain of knowing a friend is hurting like that. Hang in there and keep your spirits up. That's the best you can do for a friend.

    Oh wow, Dan - that's horrible. I don't know quite what to say to that, but I wanted to send some love your way, and your friend's way, too. Best of luck to both of you.

    The doctors will probably treat it with drugs, radiation, surgery, or some combination of two or more of the above. What you should do, if I may presume to offer some advice, is think good thoughts, volunteer to help get him/her back and forth from treatment, offer to cook or bring food once in a while, sit with him/her in the hospital or the doctor's office, be liberal with hugs, listen to them when they say they're scared, and generally let them know that you're there and aren't scared to be around them.

    I'll hold a positive thought. Sounds tough, though. I don't know what to say.

    One of my ultimate fag hags and favorite people in this world was diagnosed with liver/colon cancer. They gave her 2-3 months to live and that was nearly 2 years ago. Shes still the sunshine shes always been and she def has all the love and support from all of us around her. Just hang in there, it'll take its toll on you also!

    It's funny how things like this make people react. I got diagnosed with STAGE 1 TC 2 weeks ago (I'm already in recovery and doing GREAT) and kinda suprising how so many of my "close friends" have reacted. They DISSAPPEARED on me, got so scared by what was happening that they just couldn't be there for me. I'd love to say I love them just as I always did, but the truth is, a person's true character comes out in these kinds of situations.

    Try to just be there for your buddy. He really needs just know that YOU believe he's gonna be ok.

    Dan-

    My husband is currently being treated for Stage 4 Hodgkins Disease (which is one of the forms of lymph node cancer). He is not cured yet, but is responding extremely well to the treatment (currently chemotherapy and he will have radiation later).

    My advise to you is to treat your friend as you always have and not a cancer patient (even if you have to tell him or her to quit feeling sorry for himself/herself) and to be as supportive as possible.

    We have found with this process that the hardest thing has been having to manage other people and the fact that they turn one person's disease into their issue (i.e. a parent telling everyone so they will get sympathy) and become self absorbed and selfish or people just disappear.

    Just be a good and understanding friend!! Shoot me an e-mail if you have any questions.
