    Hi Syd_Pea,

    This is Casey, the daughter of Eva Pascual. My mom showed me the messages you've been exchanging with each other. I am sorry to learn that your father has been struck with this disease. Cancer has struck a lot of people in my life. I can relate to the feelings you're going through and understand that you may be feeling angry, tired, and confused about this experience. I struggled with accepting the fact my mother was diagnosed with Cancer. It was difficult for her to open up and ask her children for help even when she was clearly struggling. There were times I couldn't relate to what she was going through and it hurt me, because I didn't understand her pain. Though you and your family are going through this difficult time, please know that you're not alone. Now that my mother is in remission, I feel I need to give something in return to this community. Please do not hesitate to reach me or my mother. We will help support you in anyway we can. Our prayers go out to you and your father. I hope to hear from you.

    Regards,

    Casey

      Thank you for sharing your experience with me. Now I don't feel as alone, knowing other people, like you, can relate to how I feel and what I'm going through.

    I felt the same way when I got diagnosed: life is not fair. So I ask why me but then again why not me. It is difficult to understand the whys so I gave up. All I focus now is that all these too shall pass. I will pray for your dad Nicholas, that you remain strong for him. My daughter is 26 yrs old & she would love to share w/ you. Hang in there kiddo He's got your dad's back.

    My heart & prayers goes out to you & your Dad. When I got diagnosed w/ cancer the first thing that came to mind was the people I will leave behind: my husband, my son & my daughter. Although I got lucky because I am on remission I can still feel what your dad's fear is - leaving you behind. You are doing all the right things: being w/ him through all this, telling him & making him feel how much you love him because at the end of the day your love will keep him going. I do not know what your religion is but during my struggle my faith has kept me strong. Everything happens for a reason, some good & some bad but just keep your faith glowing, show your dad to fight the fight & then ask the Almighty to put your dad in the palm of His hands. My daughter would love to share her feelings w/ you if you need someone to vent out with. I will be praying for you & your dad. What is your dad's name? God bless.

      It's so nice to know that there is other people out there that are going through, or went through the same situation my dad is going through. Thank you for sharing your story, it gives me hope. It's nice to know you are in remission, and hopefully have overcome this horrible disease. And I am Catholic, both my dad and I have a strong belief in God. But sometimes I feel like I've lost my faith, because this is such a tragedy I just can't fully understand why this happens to people, why people have to suffer like this, it's not fair. My dad's name is Nicholas. And it would be nice to talk to your daughter, if she's comfortable with that. How old is she? I am only 18 yrs. old. I will also keep you, and your family in my prayers.

    On Thurs 09/14 is my PET scan & 09/15 is my MRI. It's been 6 mo since I finished my treatment & it's been a year since I was diagnosed w/ stage 3 nasopharyngeal cancer. I feel good although I still feel fatigue during mid day & of course the dry mouth & thick saliva is still there. I know my tests will come out clear just like 6 mo ago but I still feel a bit anxious & scared that there might be something. I know you will be able to relate to my feelings so I thought I'd share it w/ you guys. Oh boy.....
