My father died April 30, 1999.
He died from a cerebral hemorrhage caused by Multiple Myeloma, a cancer of plasma cells.
There is no cure.
He also lost a kidney to cancer (very probably caused by MM) and two thirds of one lung (most likely due to smoking non filtered cigarettes since he was twelve).
I miss him, but am glad he's not here to see what's happened to Mom. It would kill him.
