    Dear Jonada
    There is always Hope, unless you give up. Hold fast to your faith, stay positive and give positive thoughts to your brother-in-law.
    I have travelled this path twice before with my two siblings. Believe me it is generally "easier " for the patient than for family members so it is important not to show your own despair.
    I shall remember you in my prayers.
    Best wishes

    Our prayers are with you and your brother-in-law, Jonada.

    Take a look at this from another perspective: A little over 4.5 years ago, I was diagnosed with stage 3 metastatic malignant melanoma. At the time, there were no known chemotherapies that were effective on melanomas. I was lucky and all was accessible to "the knife", and I am cancer free.

    If your brother-in-law's cancer is giving him 5 years, there is hope that newer technology can help.

    Hi Jonada, our prayers and warm thoughts for you and your family, sorry I didn't reply earlier when I read this thread it hit me like a ton of bricks my son at 12 was diagnosed with a rare and very aggressive form of cancer that only affects children and it reoccurred at 16 he only had 10% chance. He now is a 2 time cancer survivor he is 22 yrs old and will graduate from The University of Miami so their is hope. I will say the road will be long and very hard for him and your family but what helped my wife and I was our faith and our friends which were alway their for us.
