You would think in todays modern day there would be a cure for cancer right? Keep your chin up FCS we are pulling for you!
I started getting Basal Cell when I was 30 years old. One to many sunburns as a kid and laying in the tanning beds for 10 years in my bodybuilding days probably didn't help. I have had a bunch of them, some being cut out on my face. Seems like I am just waiting for the bad stuff to come. :( I see my dermatologist every 6 months...but it doesn't make me feel any better.
I also have little kids, my oldest (son) is the same age as yours, it must be hard on everybody. You and your family are now in our prayers, your going to do great!
Best of luck
