Bad News, I haz it...

Dang.  Don't know much particulars yet, but just found out one of my uncles has colon cancer and has started chemo, and that they suspect my brother may have developed an asbestos related lung cancer.  He's going in on the 26th for tests to find out for sure.  I have no idea why they suspect this.  I talk to his daughter at least 2 or 3 times a week and she hasn't mentioned anything, and I suspect my brother has been keeping it away from his daughters until he knows something.  Or niece is in denial.

Years ago, my brother did a lot of Hazmat work back in the days before they really enforced proper safety rules.  Plus he's smoked since HS.

Just dang.  He's my baby brother, too...my only sibling.

What a bit of bad news.
