My dad died of liver cancer too. If it already spread, that doesn't sound too good. I hope he doesn't become depressed and wish him a road to recovery.... :(

I hope that he can recover. I know someone as well who was diagnosed with liver cancer. It's not easy to treat :( Praying for you.

Was he in Mr. Househusband, the variety show? He's funny and he's a great actor. I hope he recovers and goes back into acting.

And some artists take it as a badge when they can drink much more than others. Sigh.

My stepfather had liver cancer and never drank. You must be thinking of cirrhosis.
