My Uncle has brain cancer terminal, Life is fragile at times

I guess you could say we are strong people in the many things that life throws at us and then you hear the fragility of life when you can not do anything to help someone that is told they have terminal brain cancer, stage 4 and it all came as a shock and you step back a little to see life at it's fragile, precious self. He is being at peace with the drs giving him weeks to live as they take a step on chemo and radiation at the nearest center we have 30 miles away.  He is young in the late 60's and my aunt and uncle have been supportive of me in helping when I needed it, and my dad is close to him.  We can pray for the peace of not being in pain and the support they need, and to be grateful for life--through the strength and the fragileness!
God Bless All!  Love to my dearest family and friends--you are always held so close in prayers and love! 

Info from cancer inst:
"There are two main types of brain cancer. Primary brain cancer starts in the brain. Metastatic brain cancer starts somewhere else in the body and moves to the brain. Brain tumors can be benign, with no cancer cells, or malignant, with cancer cells that grow quickly.
Brain tumors can cause many symptoms. Some of the most common are
  • Headaches, usually worse in the morning
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Changes in your ability to talk, hear or see
  • Problems with balance or walking
  • Problems with thinking or memory
  • Muscle jerking or twitching
  • Numbness or tingling in arms or legs
No one knows the exact causes of brain tumors. Doctors can seldom explain why one person develops a brain tumor and another does not."
