Loss Associated with Adenocarcinoma, Lung Cancer. Posted on January 6, 2012 View this journey (12 Experiences)

Our family lost another to cancer over the holiday season. Though he wasn't directly related to me (only by marriage), I think it is important to acknowledge that this monster called cancer is not backing down. Chester was my step-mom's ex-brother-in-law. Ironically, my dad's middle name was Chester (we called him Chet, they called their Chester "Chetty"). Chester was diagnosed with the same cancer as my dad, a month after my dad passed away. He was diagnosed in August and passed December 27th.

My step-mom, step-sister and I attended the funeral on New Years Eve. Chester was buried in the same cemetery, and in very close proximity to my dad and step-brother, which made it just that much harder to be there. I'm so emotionally exhausted from losing so many to cancer. I keep fighting for them as much as I can and cancer keeps winning. WHY?????????
