I am a 45 year old male. I was diagnosed with Bile Duct cancer last June. I
had a Wipple in July of 2000 but the cancer had already spread to the lymph
nodes. I was taking Chemo this spring but quit because of the side effects.
My question is concerning my nine-year-old daughter. She knows her Dad has
Cancer, but I have not told her that I only have less than 6 months to live.
I have been in pretty good heath up till now. I have been on leave and
holidays from work and have been staying home and being mister mom.
Should I tell her now or wait until my condition gets worse before talking to
