  • Friend's son with stage 4 bone cancer

    My wife's friend's son just elected to stop treatment for his bone cancer. He's 21 years old.

    As bad as it is to hear about your elderly parent having late stage cancer, having your child, especially when so young being so diagnosed must be much more devastating.

      That's one of the conditions worse* than what I have. As horrible as it is, I can understand not wanting to continue treatment at a certain point. There comes a point when the pain is just too much to bear.

      *Not all cases of CRPS are equally terrible, but it's in the top three most painful conditions in bad cases. Bone cancer is one of the two that beats it.
