    One of my classmates I know fairly well recently got diagnosed with leukemia after being unwell for a couple of days, I am not sure how serious his condition is but no cancer is good. I knew this guy since primary school up until now (3rd form). It really is a shock when something like this happens to someone you know especially at just 13 years old. You just don't see it coming at all.

    :(

    Dude, that sucks. Kids with cancer suck--they haven't had time to screw their lives up on their own, and that just doesn't seem fair.

    For what it's worth, medicine has come a long way in the last few decades with treating childhood leukemia. Survival rates are up somewhere around 80%, which isn't bad.

    You can help that also, by making a point to visit and help keep your friend's spirits high. That mind over matter stuff really can make a difference.

    Thanks for the comment Squirrelcar it really means alot. Yeah cancer sucks especially at a young age, when the guy has not even had a chance to live his own life yet.

    I have a good friend going through the exact same thing. He has had several treatments of chemo and is possibly needing a Bone Morrow transplant.

    He is doing very well though. He has a lot of support and has kept a positive attitude towards his ability to beat it. That is the key. Your friend needs to believe and not give up or stop fighting.

    Best of luck to your friend. I hope for the best.

    :(  I'm sorry...


    I don't know much about leukemia, so I don't want to say anything insensitive, but my prayers are with him.
