Cancer is easily the worst thing in the entire world. It happens to that people that don’t deserve it. It shows up out of nowhere and literally breaks people down to nearly nothing and makes them suffer. They have to go through so much treatment and have to take so many meds. Its not fair. I wish there was just a cure that would get rid of it completely and to make sure it doesn’t come back. One of my grandfathers, 52, just passed away on October 1st from Lymphoma that he fought off for nearly 8 years and today I find out that my other Grandfather who has been fighting off Astrocytoma Glioblastoma, stage 4, since he found out in March 2010. His exact words from the newspaper say "I have no choice with this thing, so I look at every day as a great day," Edwards said. "Some days are hard, but I still think every day is great. When my doctors said I have a one in a thousand chance to make it past five years, I took that as I still have a chance because I don’t have any other option."
He has been such an incredible fighter and I couldn’t be more proud of him. He has helped so many people especially when he was a Head Chief at the Fire Department. He has always been active and healthy and would drop everything to help someone in need. Its not fair that cancer could possibly take his life within the next 2 years but I pray to god that he can keep fighting and things will get better. Cancer is heartbreaking and is the absolute worst thing ever..
