    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    My brother went into surgery almost twice every month because the Tumor kept on coming back after it has removed..It got to a point that we had to be on stand-by because we didn't know when exactly another tumor would appear on his skin.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Chemo wrecked my brother's body.As soon as he started Chemo he hardly was able to do anything on his own. He got irritated easily and he was in constant pain and he had to go in for Chemo every 2 weeks and it was hard for him. That got to me and i was beginning to doubt that Chemo would ever work because it only made him weaker.

    Easy to Do: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree

    Memory changes

    Side Effects

    He began to forget a lot of things including my name and would forget that he had a doctor's appointment and refused to go with me to the Doctor when i asked him to. He forgot that he was sick despite being in Pain. Everything just changed for the worst and this was in February 2011.

    Decision Point

    He was taken to the Hospice because he stopped talking,Eating and hardly moved unless we offered to move him.The Doctor said there's nothing more they can do because his lungs have collapsed and was also on Oxygen. It was hard to accept that he won't make it.We prayed constantly but nothing happened. Then we came to the decision that God wanted him home because he has seen his Child in constant pain and wanted that to stop so he took him home.

    Lost loved one

    Loss

    On March 25th 2011 on a friday evening he died at the Hospice and i wasnt there. When i got there like 5 minutes later i just knew that something was not right because everyone was silent and as i looked towards the bed where he was lying he was covered with the blanket. That very moment my joy went away with my brother.It was a hard journey and i'm still recovering from that loss and also fighting for the other people that have been diagnosed with Cancer.
