Cancer Sucks/Cancer Survivors

Hi all. I've changed the name of this group because it needs to reflect those diagnosed with cancer/friends and family of those cancer victims, and cancer survivors.com/family and friends of survivors. Cancer is a family affair. Please feel free to vent, share stories, and post articles on new medical procedures and treatments.

Hello, all! I'm not a cancer survivor, and as far as I know, I don't have it, but my wife Kristin died of cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer) nine years ago. That puts me squarely in the "cancer sucks" category.
