Hi my granda was diagnosed with inoperable bowel cancer today. I don't know much about his cancer, or cancer in general. All I know is he's going to be having radiotherapy for it. I've never known anyone with cancer and I've never known a family member to die either, I really don't know what to expect in the coming months at all. I know he wants to carry on like normal but I don't know how easy that will be. He's like my dad, he raised me for the first 12 years of my life, and we're very close, I don't know how to cope with his illness

Treatment is not equinanimous. Had it been so, my son would not have died.
