    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    My mother in law has been a care provider for a good part of her life, and one person she took care of, David, she had been with for over 16 years. Because of this we all got to know David a great deal, even having Thanksgiving over there with them when she had to work. David also had paraplegia... when he was 40 he had two heart attacks and two strokes in the same day, which left him in a wheelchair. Over the years he taught himself how to paint with his mouth and he would fill in his time painting. Beautiful paintings, and I'm lucky enough to have four of them. Because David was in a wheelchair, he was used to the aches and pains that accompany it. When one pain wasn't going away, they finally went in to have it checked out. That's when it was discovered that he had bone cancer, and it was advanced. David never left the hospital after the diagnosis.
