My older brother Mark (as I will call him) was diagnosed with cancer about two years ago. Each member of my family took
it differently. My brother who I will call Evan (and is Mark's twin) took if very hard and became aggressive. My sister
Ali as she now has been christened didn't talk much except at our theatre group. And I....... well I knew from some look
in Mark's eye that he wouldn't stop fighting so I thought he was going to live. Except I kept having these horrible
nightmares. I'd rather not talk about them. Every night I would wake up crying and my brother Jon would be holding me
and calming me (I was only eleven then) until one day I stopped having the nightmares, Evan stopped acting like a jerk,
and Ali started talking. We just got used to it. There is more to tell but I am getting tired of typing and I will tell
you more later.
If anyone here knows a relative or friend who has survived, died of, or is living with cancer they may post here.
