How do I deal with this (my dad is dying of stomach cancer)?
He was going to go through chemotherapy, but the cancer spread too much and there is nothing they can do. So basically people are going to come over 3 times a week to give him a shot so he won't be in too much pain when he slowly dies.

So I have to stay home all summer watching him slowly die. He won't be there to watch me go to prom, graduate from high school, or to walk me down the aisle when I get married. It's making me so sad. I suffer from major depression and this has affected me greatly.

Any advice on how to deal?
Additional Details
my mom isn't making things any better... she cries all the time.

And, I try to get out of the house quite often. It's just I can't go somewhere every single day.

MUST READ: you must kill the cancer!
since you cant find cancer... killl someone with cancer

Hi Joana,

Sorry to hear about your dad's condition.

There may be a chance your dad could get effective treatment if done quickly.

Alternative treatments have proven to be much more promising than chemo, radiation, etc.

Go to www.cancertutor.com and to Dr. Howenstein's website re: cesium chloride.

This has been known to reverse the progression of cancer in even Stage 4 patients.

Best Wishes,

This is a question best not asked online; Though im sure eveyone commmenting fells for you, reading these comments should provide no comfort.

pray, and spend as much time as you can with him

Half-Woman Half-Fish
Oh my gosh...I'm so sorry Joanna. I don't know what to say...wow...I truly wish I could help.

Your depression is being caused by... being with your dad watching him slowly die. You are a high school student, and you need time for you. Don't feel guilty getting out once in a while. Where is your mom?

Michael Corner™
If I could only be there to hug You... :(

We all know that people we love will go one day, but when You are aware that we will lose them much faster then we taught. It seems that You need him most right now, but the truth is that You need loving people whole Your life.

Try to find someone close to You who'll give You support and love, best friends can help a lot in this situation.

You should also try to be with Your father as much as You can, no mater how hard it is for You from only one reason- When he die, You'll fill angry about Yourself cause You didn't spend more time with him them You could (although You know it's not true).
But whatever You do, try to save nice memories about Your father. Remember best moments that You shared with him, but also remember hart times when he was there for You. Try to tell him about them, I'm sure he'll fill good, at least for a moment. That's all You can to- Try to make Your last moments as nice as You can.

Since we are almost same age, and I'll be a future doctor, here's my mail if You need to talk to someone, someone You don't know, but someone who will listen to You- [email protected]

Take care, and give Your best to overcome this.

I am truly sorry to hear about your dad.

There is no magic formula on what to do... but how do you think he feels. All the things you mentioned like prom and walking you down the isle... he is thinking about these things himself. He probably feels that he has let the family down and there is nothing he can to do change it. He may not have the family finances where he wanted them because he always thought there would be more time.

When he is gone, all you will have are your memories of him. I know that it is hard, but sit and talk with him. Ask him what it was like when he was in school and what his favorite subjects was and favorite sports and friends and girl friends and dating. Ask how he decided on the career that he is in and anything else you come up with.

Talk with you mom and let her know that you are there for her and ask her to try to keep it together until he is gone. I know is it hard, but try to enjoy the time you have left. You can fall apart after he is gone.

In situations like this I have found it helpful to not only show your care for your dad but also make yourself stronger. By that I mean do some exercise, sing some songs, or anything else you love doing. Just watching your dad die over summer break is not going to help him or you at all. And I think every parent wants their kids to have a bright future. That means he probably doesn't want his medical condition to be the reason you didn't achieve your dreams. Be the best child you could be to him, bring home something that will make him proud of you. Since you're in high school there is always some preparation that could be done for the next year's course load.

In conclusion spend as much time as you can with your dad, but don't spend so much time that you drive yourself into depression. If you feel like your going to loose it, take a jog around the neighborhood or read an engaging novel, take out the strength of anguish on bettering yourself in some way.

I had the same issue when my mom died of breast cancer when I was 13. My best advice would be to spend your time with your dad getting good memories of him. Memories are what will last throughout your life and I was fortunate to have had my mom for 13 years. Its been several years now, and I promise things do get easier. Time heals all things. It also helps to go out and have fun. Try to do something to take your mind off it and enjoy yourself.

pray! it doesnt mater if u arent religious and do not believe in "miracles". everything happens for a reason. So just pray pray pray! miracles happen every day so dont delay, pray today. If you are a christian and do believe in god, you will know that god will always be there for him so chin up... everything will be alright

Honestly, I wouldn't get out of the house. I would want to spend as much time as I can with my dad. Do the getting out of the house thing later on. Right now you know you're going to miss him which is why you need to use the remaining time you have with him wisely.

Im so sad about this, I can't imagine how you feel right now. I think that it's ok to feel this way, but try to surround yourself with family and friends that love you. I hope this helps...

Whenever it is bout fathers, its always the same...
The one who gives us life and makes us be transfers us to the next world too...
No advice will help you dear. Its only your own effort that can comfort you. Find the good in the whole picture. Know that Ev one has to die one day. But till the time he's there with you, make it happy for him , the most possible.Running away from any situation is not humane or brave. Instead be with him as long as possible..
And yeah if you believe,, do pray too.
I don't say praying works for me.. I say HE works for whatever He knows is good.
And He is not unjust or carefree about people. He even acknowledges our pain.

Firstly may I say how sorry I am to hear of your situation and I wish that things do get better for you.

Now I have no experience what so ever of your situation however I would hope that your time over this next few months will be filled with at least a hand fullof joyful moments, try and do the things that you did with your dad as a child, did you play cards or did he read certain books to you? These moments will live with you for the rest of your life and I hope will make the dark times that little bit brighter.

I wish you and your family the very best for the coming months.


Try to spend time with your Dad while he is still here. Have a family game night or something and try and get everyone's mind off it.

I don't know the answer but I am sorry that you are going through this. I wish you all the best

Zaether *MA*
Pray about it, God does indeed answer prayers. I will pray for him too. As a matter of fact, we who have answered this question should all pray.

4HIM- Christians love
I am so sorry. I will pray for you and your family.

My husband recently had throat cancer. His operation, radiation and chemo were a success however, the doctor has now found another spot. We don't know if it is Cancer or not until Thursday. I will trust God to know what is best because even though I would miss him more than I can tell you, I know that this is only a temporary life here. God bless you.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 (New International Version)

The Coming of the Lord
13Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. 14We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15According to the Lord's own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18Therefore encourage each other with these words.


Rev 21:1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

I just want to give you a big hug. It is so easy to ask this question to a computer with strangers. There are people out there who care and just want to help, even if that means just giving you a hug. I had a hard time when I was a teen opening up with anyone. Don't do it, let people in. Even if they are stinky old people. Just remember one person cannot handle anything alone, no one. Reach out to your friends, the nurses. Tell your dad how much you love him. That is all I can say, I wish you the best and it will get better.

I know what you going through. My father died from cancer in 2000. It was one of the hardest things that I have ever had to deal with. I was 21 with a 9 month old daughter that my dad old got a few months with. He died 7 days after my 21st birthday. I know it is rough, and I know that I didnt want to stand around or be around to watch my father die. I didnt know if I could handle it. But, I am glad now that I was there. It gave me time to spend with him. I got a chance to just talk to him. He told me things about his life that he would probably wouldnt have otherwise. I learned more about my father in those last 2 months that I ever knew before. I know that right now, it seems hard and like you are going to lose it or something. But it is worth it in the end. I know that in the future you will be glad that you were there. If you are having trouble with depression, I would suggest talking to someone, a friend, a counselor, or someone you are comfortable with. Talking helps you deal with it.

Sorry to hear this but you have to motivate yourself.
Every start has an end likewise everyone has to die one day and we can't do nothing other than praying god. So keep your dad happy and do the things he wish.

Talk to him, spend time with him while you can. Weather he is able to do much with you, either way sit with him, even is hes asleeep, just be their make the most of the time. Its horrid i understand and i feel so sorry for you all. Its a part of life, just remember the best times and make the most of the time now. To be honest, this is something in life thats just to hard to deal with...but you will find a way. Good luck to you all

Hey sweetie im sorry for what your going through but I actaully went through the SAME exact thing. My dad had Colon cancer which is in the stomach and during the summer 3 years ago he was going through the kemo and radiation too.
Its prob one of the most worst things to happen to a girl your age loosing your father. I was a freshman when he passed away and ofcoarse he was slowly dying too in my house where I saw it all. And my mother got very depressed too from the death....Its been three years now and my mother and I and my 2 sisters all got diagnoised with depression and I also already had anger issues so it didnt help at allll.
But I (we, my famly) learned to cope wth this loss in our life. and as everyday goes by he will always be in our head...and in our hearts but this loss made my family closer because yyou realize instead of being so upset why god would take him away from us, you be thankful for the famly you have right now and you realize how short life is and lossing someone so close to your heart could happen today or even tomorow.
Theres so much I could tell you because your story is pretty much exactly like mine.
But if you liked to talk to me about this and ask for advice, support or vent to i'd be glad to help you.

please keep your head up and while you have him still here with you, please let him know how much you love him before it gets too late...

You should get out of the house, but it's good you are spending time with him. He most likely knows you love him, but you should show him all the time that he is really important to you, and you should make all the time you have with him special.

You're depressed, and you should probably go to a therapist and get support from your friends if your mom isn't helping.

I'm sorry this is happening to you... Prayers to you and your family. Remember that there is always a chance he'll get better. ='(

crystal o
pray....i think you should go to church..(thats if you are a religious person)..Or talk to a counselor...I cant imagine what you are going through at a young age..But i will keep you and your family in my prayers.nobody deserves to go through what you are going through right now..
I wish you and your family nothing but the best...

♥♥ αηιмє ??ιη¢єѕѕ ♥♥
I'm very sorry to hear this my father died of cancer i was 8 years old
i say the best is to pray, maybe you can hang with some friends, be with your father the most you can, you can make a photo album of your memories, visit a local animal shelter or a hospital that can make people feel better, go to church.
Again i am sorry but just know your not the only one who has felt the pain of losing a father, my dad wont even get to see me graduate or anything
i hope you and your dad have some wonderful times to together
writing always helps!

Turk Cobain (½ way gives a damn about Y!A)
Pray...that's the best thing to do, when my dad almost went into a diabetic coma and had to stay in the hospital for two weeks, I was literally the coldest person on the planet..I didn't go to school or anything. God forbid, if anything happened to him, half of myself would die with him..but he still has life through you so you gotta be strong for him and have him as your motivation to do whatever it is you wanna do in life. You may not understand it now, maybe not ever, but everything happens for a reason.
