I am so sorry to hear about the news you received about your father. I can understand how difficult it is to hear such news. My son was diagnosed with NHL when he was 24 and it was so hard to deal with. He is still doing fine so I am very thankful for that, but worrry every day what the next day brings. I hope you can have stay positive and hope for some better news from the doctors.

I'm sorry to hear about your dad... and your brother. My dad had Burkitt's Lymphoma and died this past June. We found out he had cancer and not even two weeks later he passed away. It was just so sudden and heartbreaking. We were really close. My dad had an extremely aggressive, fast growing cancer and it was already Stage IV by the time he found out that he had cancer - so I don't want to crush anyone's hope by saying how he passed away so quickly. Anyways, I can understand what you are going through. I hate how people say "Stay positive" when you tell them a loved one has cancer. I felt like I was positive, as positive as one can be under the circumstances, but it made me feel like I wasn't allowed to be sad or scared or anything like that... which is all normal. I know they say these things because they care about me and don't want to see me sad but sometimes it's just not helpful and it made me feel worse.

Anyways, I didn't mean to write so much about me and my story. I just wanted to say that I can understand what your going through and your not alone. You and your dad are in my thoughts and prayers.

Keep the faith. I know this is difficult after having to go through this with your brother but every situation is different.

May God grant you the peace that defies all human understanding.

I will be praying for you and your Dad.
