Over the past year I've been watching my grandpa battle both lung and brain cancer. Through it all I've also been supporting women all over the Central Ohio area who are battling Ovarian Cancer.
Yesterday we found out he will undergo ten radiation treatments to treat the tumor on the tumor at the base of his brain stem. His lungs are also full of fluid from the tumor and its grown a little as well.
I haven't talked about any of this much because its been so heartbreaking and devastating for me and my entire family. I know there is a good chance he won't be there to see me get married, but I just have to let go and let God as so many people have told me!
His first treatment is tomorrow so I think I will take dinner over to them as just a small way to try and support them. All I can really do is just be there for them, go over to visit and make sure that I don't have any regrets that I did not spend enough time with them.
This is really the first time in my adult life that I've had to watch someone in my family battle an illness and I'm not sure how to feel or what to think. If any of you have been through this, I'd love some advice on what I should be doing for them.
