We just found out yesterday that my grandfather has Multiple Myeloma, and has 5weeks-1year. My mom, sister, and grandma were emotional wrecks. I however, felt I needed to be the strong one. My grandma was so completely dependent upon him (they're from back in the day), and they live 3 hours away. I just don't know what to do, it's not like I can say, everythings going to be ok, because it's not. How? How do you stay positive?

I don't know, please help me try to be the support I know this family needs.
