    Not much else I can say really in the circumstances except any support I can offer is freely given.

    Very sorry to hear about your nephew's illness. It sounds like you have a good friendship with him, so keep him in good spirits, and be optimistic. Very often, people who are very ill are more worried about how those close to them feel about them being ill than they are about it themselves. Anyway, all the best.

    Ken,

    There is always hope. Cancer treatment has improved so much (I know!!).

    My deepest sympathies.. Keep your and your nephew's chin up,

    Take care bud.

    Sorry to hear the news mate. He's young though so should have every chance of making a full and complete recovery.

    Let us know how he gets on.

    About a year ago I posted a link to an Ebay auction asking for people to donate bone marrow to help save the life of a girl with leukemia who couldn't find a donor match.

    What I didn't say at the time was that the advert was posted by my ex wife and the girl was actually my daughter. She was unable to find a donor but the course of chemotherapy that she undertook last year was successful and the cancer is now in remission, hopefully never to return.

    It is one of the biggest shocks that one can receive to be told that one of your nearest and dearest has any form of cancer but there have been huge advances in treatments and the rate of cures have increased tremendously.

    Fingers crossed

    But what a courageous lad, who seems to be laughing it off and is determined not to let it get him down.
