On The Family Front

I found out earlier this week that my cousin, Jim, has bladder cancer. Based on what I've heard from his younger sister, Sharon, it's not an easily treatable cancer and the prospects for survival are not considered good. She's read 2-3 years. His general practitioner told him 2. I don't understand giving the shorter time frame to a patient. But he did wait almost a year to get to a doctor after the first appearance of blood in his urine.

He's forty-eight. He's taken a bitter turn in the last few years. I hope that he can find some peace so that whatever time he has left will be positive for him.
