The Redditor started her story by explaining that she and her friends were planning to go on a “girls trip” but then invited their significant other with them.

“Planning for this vacation was a long time and I was really looking forward to it, as did the others. A few weeks ago my friend said he didn’t really want to go. I tried to convince him otherwise because our hotel, activities etc, were already booked but he didn’t budge, he said some still had cancellations It’s free and that he’ll pay for those that don’t. Well pick it up, I’m still planning to go with my friends,” the original poster (OP) wrote.

“But my little friend started saying I shouldn’t go too and stay with him for support and so he’s not alone. I told him I was really looking forward to this trip and if he didn’t go then that’s fine but I still would. We had a bit of an argument about this. It’s up to me, and I ended up having a great time. Since I got back, my little friend has been giving me a cold shoulder.”

In response to a comment, the OP explained that her boyfriend had been diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma. She said he wasn’t advanced and that chemo didn’t start until she got back from vacation. He was worried about him and wrote that she was trying to help him through it. She reassured readers that he was not alone when she was away because he had a local family.

NEWSWEEK I reached out to u/aitaa780 for comment.

What is Ewing’s sarcoma?

YOO-ing sarcoma is a rare type of cancer that is found in or around the bones. According to the Mayo Clinic, the disease usually begins in the bones of the leg and pelvis but can occur in any bone. Some symptoms of Ewing’s sarcoma include bone pain, fatigue, fever, and unintended weight loss.

Ewing’s sarcoma is the second most common type of cancer in children and adolescents. According to Per hopkinsmedicine.org, 225 children and young adults (ages 10-20) have been diagnosed with the disease. Ewing’s sarcoma is rare in adults. For localized Ewing sarcoma (it stays in one part of the body), the five-year survival rate is 70 percent. However, if the cancer metastasizes or spreads to another part of the body, the five-year survival rate drops to 15 to 30 percent.

typical treatment Ewing’s sarcoma includes chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery to remove the tumor, possible amputation of the affected area, rehabilitation, and antibiotics.

“It’s also understandable that you might not want to be there for him and look for a way out so you don’t have to get involved with a guy who’s likely to die of cancer. Either way, because the OP left out an important part of the situation in an effort to hide the real reason behind his desire.” In the OP to be with him – or – Why doesn’t the OP want to be at home with him, I’m going with him [you’re the a**hole]Follow.

Yes, sure, you were looking forward to it, but I’m sure it was. We are also looking forward to not getting cancer. His whole world has been turned upside down, and you cannot sacrifice a road trip to support him.”
