    Suggestions on staying calm

    My brother has just been diagnosed with cancer, poorly differentiated cancer. I am so angry, upset and can't quit thinking about it. My spouse has been a complete jerk about all of it. I need help in staying composed and getting through this. I need a support group I can turn too.

      Thanks everyone for your great responses already. Just reading these has made me calmer. How do I know if my brother choose a competent oncologist? I haven't been impressed with him at all. My brother is 57 and has declined so rapidly. He was admitted back into the hospital last night thru the emergency room and his doctor said he would see him tomorrow. Is that normal?

      Once again, thanks for your support. I'm sorry to say that my brother has deteriorated very rapidly. I believe it is just a matter of days. He is now on a ventilator. I'm numb at this point. Thanks for helping.

      My brother passed away last night. Three weeks to the day that his doctor told us his cancer was treatable. Thanks for your support and God Bless all of you!
