During the past couple weeks, my dad has been coughing and feeling chest pains so he started getting some tests ran at the hospital. I didn't think much of it and was naively optimistic about it not being a serious issue. Monday night, my mom and dad sat me down and told me he has lung cancer . The doctors have given him 6 months to survive even with chemotherapy, which starts tomorrow . The cancer has spread throughout his body and is inoperable at this point. I'm almost 22 and have never seen my dad break down, let alone cry . I'm a second-generation immigrant from South Korea, and the only thing my dad has done for the past 22 or so years is worked graveyard and overtime shifts for the post office to support me, my older sister, and my mom. My mom has been a housewife her entire life in the states (~25 years), gets by with bare minimum English, and doesn't have any post-high school education. My dad is stressing over how my mom is going to live on without him. I'm on track to graduate from college this year, and my older sister is off on her own so I know my sister and I can support my mom together; but my sister doesn't even know of any of this and it kills me inside. My parents decided to wait until next week after her last CPA exam. My parents told me that with treatment, there was something about a 5% chance that my dad can potentially live up to 5 years. My dad acts like he's in good spirits and uses this possibility to portray his positive attitude; but I can see how hard it is for him to hold his head up. My mom never sugar coats anything and said the doctors stood by their 6 month time line . I'm stressing out like crazy right now. I'm mid-way through the quarter. I constantly feel like I have to vomit. I'm losing so much sleep because of the amount of anxiety... It breaks me down knowing that my dad doesn't have a support group other than me, my mom, and eventually my sister. My parents are the stereotypical first-gen immigrants who came over to provide a future for me and my sister, and nothing else. They don't have close friends here in the states, and most of my family are back in South Korea. I feel like a strong support network would help my dad. I know my dad got along with some of his coworkers, but never had a relationship with them outside of work. Would it be inappropriate for me to visit my dad's work and try to gather some of his closer coworkers to help my dad through this? My dad told me he didn't want me to do anything out of the norm because it would make him sad to see how his condition is affecting my life. He knows in the past I revolved my work and school schedule around winter because of my obsession with snowboarding, so he was BEGGING me to get as many days in this season and not to let his condition hold me back on doing the things I want to do even if it's snowboarding this season; but there's no way I can do that. What do I do? The only thing I won't put a pause on is school; it's my last year and hopefully I can get this out of the way in time to adjust to the changes in all of our lives. I needed to get that off my chest because I haven't really shared this with others, which is probably why I feel so anxious. I just don't want to bring anyone else down.
