Posted over in the OO Minecraft thread, McBa1n passed away last night.  According to his medical expense fundraiser, late last week he was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer of the brain, kidneys, lungs and lymph nodes, and was told he only had 3 months to live.

I'm at a loss for words.

Wow, that is so sad. Can cancer just sneak up on you like that?

OO thread said he died of cardiac arrest. Not sure if the two are connected or a sad coincidence.  Rest in peace McBa1n.

He died from cardiac arrest, not the cancer. At least not directly. The cancer was probably indirectly responsible though, or the cardiac arrest might have been caused by the stress of seeing his own death looming right in front of him. I can't even imagine what he went through during those few days. At least he didn't have to suffer for very long.

Mom said to me last night that it would be her prefered way to go.  That being said, she helped out a bunch when her sister, the best of the family, and a cardiac nurse, went through cancer for six years before succumbing.

Been hearing a lot of bad cancer stories lately. My wife's former boss just got diagnosed with lung cancer that has spread to the brain and it's not looking good. My brother and mother are cancer survivors (thyroid and bladder, respectively) and both had fair warning, whether it be visual or via discomfort. These stories are changing my expectations of cancer, making it even more scary than it already is.

It's frustrating that in 2014 we don't have a reliable cure or treatment for most of the major types of cancer.  Just as important as treatment is an early detection technology.  Star Trek had that body scanning wand in the '70s, and then the med table that provided instant treatments.  When I was a kid I thought for sure we would have something like that by the time we were adults.  It's just weird that with so much $ that we donate to cancer research, we're not there yet.   

I know treatments have improved, but it seems like we're always just one breakthrough away from figuring it out.
