Well i just found out that my best friend of 26 yrs who is only 28 yrs old, is dying of 3 different cancers. She saw a doctor today and they have her scheduled for emergency hysterectomy. She has cervical, ovarian, and nyphonotes (sp) cancer. The doctors said that the lumps in her neck are way to far along ( which is the nyphonotes(sp) i believe) that she has very little time left.
Heres my issue. She has not and does not plan on telling her parents about this, in other words the only way they will ever know is when they get a call from someone saying she has died. NOw she does not want me to tell her parents, which i wont because i respect her wishes, but she wants to to tell her dad at the funeral that she wanted to tell him but she diden t want her mother to know because her mother is not in right state of mind. NOw when i tell her dad this at her funeral he may get extremely upset with me that i did not inform him earlier so he could spend the last little while with his daughter. She needs her family's support. But she refuses to tell them, i ve tried convincing her so much to tell them, but she refuses.
What the hell do I do? Her parents need to know, shes only 28 and seeing how she will pass away in less then 3 months, i think her parents would want to spend that last few moments with her. Im so confused right now, her family is like my family, and i think they need to know, but i have promised not to tell them.
What would u guys do?
