Hi @samwise221, It's very hard watching someone you care about going thru cancer, especially when you're so far away from each other. Regarding doctors not giving a prognosis - they rarely will, because they can be quite easily wrong, especially if they don't know exactly what they're dealing with. I think you should find someone to talk with about ways to cope, & you have a few options for this. You can call the Cancer Council # 131120, Lifeline, a member of the clergy, engage a social worker, or even just download to a friend. Talking can help alot & it makes a big difference to how you can cope. I wish you & your friend all the best. Budgie
