    My Dad, My lifestyle and some friends

    Loss

    My dad passed away with lung cance/COPD 1 week after I was diagnosed. During and after my treatments my lifestyle changed; I was/am unable to work and unfortuntly some friends weren't able to handle my having cancer. Initially I heard from them regularly then over a period of time our friendships demished. I am happy to say though; my friends today are very supportive. I am alive, my cancer isn't active... I consider myself fortunate.
