The C word strikes again!

My grandma (nanny) had been having some pain in her back since my grandpa (Lewis) passed away. So she went to her doctor planning on getting a shot for a disk she had already had problems with in the past. They did their usual MRI to find which disk it was, but found a tumor.

She was then sent to a specialist, who did a biopsy and a full body scan. Her scan came back and showed many more spots on her lungs, adrenal glans, and spine. A few days later her biopsy came back with the news that in our hearts we already knew....LUNG CANCER stage four. The same thing that killed Lewis only months ago.

I'd like to stay positive and say she will beat this, however not only have the doctors said that even if she tries her hardest, she only has six months to live, but Lewis died three months after finding out about his cancer.

This is going to be very hard for me. It was hard to have Lewis and my uncle pass but my nanny is one of the most important people to me and quite possibly the closes person to me. Knowing she is dieing is like having my heart ripped out and stomped on!
