My dad just recently was diagnosed with bowel cancer which spread to his liver. I live 12,000km away and feel so scared and helpless and I just want to be there for him, but I can't afford a plane ticket to go home again. I'm so scared for him and I don't know what to do. I've never had any experience with this disease and he was always so strong and healthy, never getting sick. It was such a shock how he became so sick so fast. I can only afford to call home once a week and I am really sad most of the time and don't really have anyone to talk to about this.
I guess I just needed to vent. 😞
