"Raylin" passed away-Prostate Cancer w/Bone Mets


"Raylin" passed away on Monday. He must have been in so much pain. He had a brain bleed from lack of platelets (Advanced Prostate Cancer with bone mets). I took him to MD Anderson in a wheelchair for his scheduled chemo treatment -- we both thought it was chemo fatigue. We didn't make it to the chemo appt -- instead diverted from airport to Emergency Room, where they did brain surgery. But ultimately, the lack of platelets was an issue. 23 months from diagnosis and 57 years old.

I know he would want to wish all of you the best of luck with your treatments.

I am so sorry so young to be gone.

Heart breaking.

So very sorry for the loss of your young warrior and brother of ours . Praying for the peace and comfort that can only come from God . Just a thought - Grief is learning to live with someone in your heart with memories in your mind , instead of in your arms . Memories are a gift for all time . Peace

So sad and so unfair!!! Prayers to you and your family

It was a blessing to have you there with him. I'm sorry for your loss.

Please live healthy yourself . After witnessing pc gone wild we see the brevity of our own existence . Grieve but don’t get stuck there forever. You have much life to live ahead of you . Honor him by doing so ., I am sorry for all of the pain and suffering . For him that is now over . For you it must be also .. God bless you! My wife is 56. I want her to live a long fruitful life if I check out early . Time is precious to us both . 🙏🙏🙏🕊🕊🕊I’m Scott in Prescott Az.

Died at 57 years old.......... what a fucking shame... He just started posting here a year ago and he's gone. I don't know how you're related to Raylin but I'm really really angry at his passing at such a young age. You and all of his family and friends have my deepest condolences. May he live in eternity in peace as he should have while he was on this earth for such a short time. God Bless...

So very sorry for your loss...

I'm so sorry 💔 may God be with u...so many young men who have this Awful disease

There are never words in a time like this. Many here, like myself, have a little survivor guilt, to see someone still so young, pass on to the other side. May you find strength to pick yourself up and continue on.

So sad to hear this...my heartfelt condolences to you ...

Goodbye, Brother Raylin. Maybe we'll meet again. So sorry for your loss but it was good that you were near in the end.

Very sorry for your loss. G-d has another plan for him. The grief is terrible, take some solace in the fact he is out of pain and at peace. ❤️
