Good News / Bad News

There was a Daffy Duck cartoon where he says, "Ooooh, I hate not knowing what it is..."
My brother's Red Blood Cell elevation had the so called experts scratching their collective heads.
They deemed it Polycythemia Vera even though he didn't fit the demographic.
Well, if you can consider knowing the etiology of a problem good news, they found it.
My brother was told he has kidney cancer.
Some how we don't feel like celebrating.
How can it get worse?
It's Metastasized to his lungs and quite possibly pancreas and spleen.
So, now two of my siblings have some serious cancer going on.
July they are going to take my brother's kidney and then biopsy the lungs, spleen and pancreas.
