"It’s about time metastatic cancers had more attention, more funding, more research and more support so others don't needlessly lose the ones they love most!"
My father's journey with prostate cancer started 15 years ago when he was diagnosed at age 54. Since that time, he was also diagnosed with colon cancer and 15 years later, has metastatic prostate cancer to the bones, lungs, liver, and now the bile duct. We are out of options and now home on hospice care with my father and "It's About Time" at this point.
Literally, every day matters to us. I know it's too late for my father, but it’s about time metastatic cancers had more attention, more funding, more research and more support so others don't needlessly lose the ones they love most!

“Mr. Marcus, you have kidney, lung, and brain cancer. Stage 4. We are going to monitor you for the next 24 hours but there is not much we can do for you here. You need to go home and start making arrangements. At most, you have two years to live.”
I had a red circle on the right side of my breast, and I had lost twenty pounds despite the fact that I was not on a diet. When I went to the doctor their tests couldn’t find anything wrong, so I told them to check out this red spot.
My husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC). He had a total left nephrectomy on our 35th wedding Anniversary on Sept. 10, 2012. At that time there was no treatment that was available.
