Aubree Posted June 5, 2007 Share Posted June 5, 2007 Hello all. My father just called me last night, and with the help of my mother broke the news as gently as he could that he has just been diagnosed with SCLC. It really doesn't seem real. My brother works in cancer research, and my sister is a nutritionist, and will both undoubtedly be supportive and helpful just by the sheer nature of what they do for a living and the fact that we are an extremely close family. I live, however, half a country away from my father, and don't have a career in anything that would be helpful. I have been told that just by being strong and loving my dad, that will be enough. How can I be strong when I feel like I am tearing apart inside every time I think of my Daddy going through the extremely hard (and painful) process of treatment? If there is anyone out there who can perhaps give me some words of wisdom, or some advice on the best way to be there for my dad, I would appreciate all you have to offer.
