I'm not usually one to condone foul language but also believe there is a time and place for such words. This is definitely one of those. I hate it! I f#*%ing hate cancer with ever fibre of my being. I liken it to the battle so many countries fight against terrorists and I know some might poo poo that but I do. It's a cowardly thing that usually never manifests itself until it is too late to do anything about it. It takes the lives of innocents everywhere with no regard for their age or their loved ones who will be left behind. This makes me sick!

In my disgust with this I always wonder why more resources aren't put into destroying these diseases. We put men on  the moon, people live in space, we landed on mars and got to see what that planet looks like...How many billions of dollars do we put into endeavors that while very cool and interesting, have very little impact on the day to day life of human beings....I don't want to get political at all, it's just something that really makes me wonder, especially in stories like this which unfortunately, aren't very rare at all. 

I think you said it better and much more succinctly than me....f#*% cancer!

 Condolences to the Carr family.

My wife is a cancer survivor, but the treatment almost killed her, I had to take her to the ED with a BP of 80/33 after the 2nd Chemo treatment, the dose was too high. The treatment is almost as bad as the cancer.

Thanks for mentioning this. As I've gotten a bit older and the passing of loved ones becomes a bit more common, I've come to realize how hard certain days can be. A loved one's birthday, the day she died, an anniversary, Thanksgiving, Father's Day--they all bring back those special memories. So as we approach the holidays make sure to celebrate, but also remember those for whom the occasion is bittersweet.

I know Chad has found his peace. I hope and pray that his loved ones can find their peace as well.

For all those who donate to cancer-related charities, and all those who will do so in the future... PLEASE do, but also do your homework to make sure you are donating to a charity that puts the most of your dollar to actual cancer work.

A fighter to the very end. I had a childhood friend pass away from cancer in grade school and it's always sad to lose someone so young. He'll be watching The Game from heaven this saturday. Let's win this one for him boys!

I agree.  My heart goes out to his family.  It really does bring tears to my eyes.  He looks so much like my son at that age.  I can't even begin to imagine the pain that they're going through.  I hope they can rest in the comfort of knowing he isn't suffering any longer.

My heart is breaking for Tammi Carr and their whole family. Poor mama. It's so sad when parents have to bury their children, especially young children. My condolences to their family.
