Cancer can FTFO.

I knew that two of my family friends were fighting it. One is scheduled for a bone-marrow transplant (leukemia.)

I didn't know how bad off the second person was. His cancer has spread to the bones and he's undergoing some kind of semi-experimental treatment involving harvesting and altering white blood cells.

My parents tell me he has a good attitude about it and is doing well, but I'm still kind of sad - this is someone who just retired recently from a demanding career, and was looking forward to doing some service work in retirement. I've been praying for both him and for the other person off and on, at different points during the days.
