My dad was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in March of 2016. After eight months of chemo, radiation, hospital stays, surgeries and an awfully lot of pain and inability to eat, he passed away on November 12th of that same year. The cancer institute he went to did everything they could to make his last days more comfortable and to prolong his life but the cancer had just spread into too much of his body. I have five children who absolutely adored their grandpa, and to this day they miss him so much. He was one of a kind. A true gem.
