My dear friend whom I've known for 4 years now has prostate cancer.
He has been in remission since 1999... before I met him.
In the past few months, the cancer came back.
My dad, whom I don't talk to, has the same cancer (recently diagnosed) and my friend's PSA levels are higher than my Dad's.
I guess I go through my friend to see how my Dad is doing.
Recently I found out that my friend's cancer has spread...
We have become closer as if though he is the Dad friendship I wish I had!
I love you my dear friend and thank you for showing me the strength I hope to have when I have to say good-bye.
