Cancer Caregivers, the Silent Sufferers 

My uncle has been battling cancer for almost 2 years now. He had to go through a 10 hour surgery about a year and a half ago to remove a tumor. Now after 2 sessions of chemo and radiation , they found another tumor developing in his liver. Again. 
I think one of the many shitty aspects of cancer is the helplessness you feel. Not only as the cancer patient but as the caregiver as well. I mean WHAT do I do? Tell me what to do to take this pain away from my uncle and I’ll do it in a heartbeat. I hate watching him suffer. I hate how chemo makes him weak. I hate how chemo makes him sleep for 3 days straight. I hate how I have to beg him to just take one bite of food. I hate how he is so disinterested… He is always tired. He is so emotional. The most painful part is that there’s nothing I can do to make it better…..
If you only knew how funny he is. If you only knew how intelligent and how worldly he is. If you only knew how handsome and kind he is…. if HE only knew all that too… if he knew, maybe it would give him the confidence to fight this battle a little stronger… maybe he would believe in himself a little harder…

We love you so much uncle.  Please keep fighting!
