New to forum, scared to death. Throat cancer.

Hi, I've just found this forum after reading a cancer council booklet. My darling daddy has just been told he has terminal throat cancer. I was coping for about a day and came home and fell in a heap. I'm not ready to lose him, I'm trying to stay strong for the family as I've always been the fixer in the family but I can't fix this. I'm scared of how much pain he is in, what is going to happen, I just can't bare the thought he will suffer but I know with this cancer he most certainly will. I have so many things running through my head. I'm scared, lost, angry. Reading these forums, I know I am not alone in my fear and pain but that doesn't make it any easier.
