This is so sad and I found myself skipping to the end just to see what happened... Now I wish I didnt.
But this was a great story and very sweet and sad

I can't believe it's over.
It's one of those things were you are so captivated and interested in something the first time you read/see it, then when it ends, you feel like a sort of sadness you can never experience it the most powerful way the first time.
Since you had such a great story, allow me to give you a final review.
From the very first chapter everyone obviously would be wondering whether or not Stan was going to live. I myself had a feeling he wouldn't make it, but all the hints of hope and Stan's determination to live kept me silently cheering him on. Towards the fourth of July celebration I had a bad feeling the worst would happen, it sadly enough, it proved to be true. I expected it, but that didn't stop me from crying. I can honestly say you've pulled at my heartstrings reading this story. I was actually considering doing some volunteer work at a children's hospital a few years back, just didn't have the time to go. Cancer is such a nasty disease and can take away anyone, no matter how much we love them. It's a sad fact, but the fact Stan died I felt was very realistic, even if it was difficult.
I honestly raised my eyebrows when I saw Sharon had her own POV chapters, I never really saw a whole lot of Sharon in SP, I viewed her mostly just as 'Stan's mom.' But I think the way you described her thoughts was probably very close to accurate, she seems like one of the few normal ones on the show.
The bit with Kenny killing himself to see Stan was incredibly sad. When Kenny said he thought he saw Stan, I instantly teared up. It's sad to think that in this fiction, Stan can no longer smile, run around, laugh with his friends again...but I am grateful though, that you ended his life on a happy note (for him, I mean).
The ending itself I would say is bittersweet, but you made a HUGE impact on me, and I'm sure others feel the same way.
I'm so glad I chose to read this over my winter break, it gives me motivation to work on my own fiction, you're writing style was SO GOOD!
I hope you continue writing. Thank you very much for your dedication to delivering such an awesome, POWERFUL story! Good luck in your future projects and I hope you continue to do well!

I can't believe I've read so much of your FanFiction over my break! Wow, 7 chapters left, I'm so excited, yet really nervous for the end. I could see it ending in a few different ways, I guess I'll see if my idea was correct.

Aww, you are just making me love Stan more and more :)/:( I'm not sure which emoticon to use for that . I really enjoyed this chapter, almost half-way done, can't believe I'm so entertained, it's been a good while since I've read something as sincere as this story. I really like it!

OK you're story is really hitting me in the feels. I just find it so adorable, yet sad in a way, that Stan has such a huge affection for animals. You really capture the story from a kids point of view. It's interesting, because the narrative makes me wonder how I would have felt as a kid if something like this happened to me (probably the same way Stan is feeling about things). I also love the fact your FanFic is a good way to promote cancer awareness. I respect you very much as an author, you have earned my respect :)

I am absolutely enthralled in your fiction. This is actually the first sad FanFic I've read (I write a sad one, but this)..Just the way you present the setting and the characters, it really motivates me to finish your story until the end. I'm really glad you decided to write this. I don't know how the story is going to end but I can almost bet I'll be crying. I'm very excited to keep reading and would like to say I think you are an absolutely phenominal author. You are motivating me to work on my own fic even though I'm on break from university, but I think I'll read this for my break. Have a great Christmas and you can certainly expect reviews from me!

I saw your story's summary and was captivated by the premise of the story. Your first chapter was very emotional, I got major feels since Stan is my favorite character on the show. You describe the situations in a very realistic and descriptive way and it really helps me visualize your story. I'm looking forward to finishing your story...even if the ending ends up being sad, I already want to see this story through to the end.

I found it interesting that Stan has Anemia. Mostly because, I have minor Anemia that runs through the Italian blood line...

I was tearing up at the possible leukemia part, but after Shelley agreed to Finding Nemo I finally cried. DX

Wow. Wow, I'm actually crying. I lost my dog to cancer last summer. The day before she died, I held her paw in my hand and told her over and over again that I loved her.
A sweet story, albeit quite depressing. Perhaps it was a bit soon for me to read this, but at the same time it allowed to me to relate to and really enjoy the story in a different light. I think you captured the characters very well and I loved how Cartman got Stan's cat at the end. Well done.

OMG I'm crying

Oh my God. That was so emotional, and professional!

I'm not gonna lie, I wanted/thought/hoped the end to be Kyle/Sharon/Shelley/Cartman/Kenny/Randy/Stan waking up to see that it was a bad dream, and then Stan reached remission. Of course, that's not how cancer works (And all the mothers who lost their kids to cancer probably wish that could happen too). Fantastic story, I'm glad how it ended (What would SP do if that happened...well...they were possibly thinking about it instead of "Kenny Dies"...but yeah) I did cry. A lot. Too much actually. Like almost caps-locked my SP buddy to death in pure shock. I was shocked. But, it's just a story. Life will go on. But on this July 13th, I will probably take a second to remember this story. Thanks for writing.

Wow, I'm crying. This is so sad. It's weird though...for SP I like the sad stories (Ex. Two of my fav episodes are Cherokee Hair Tampons and Kenny Dies) It's a great story. I can't wait to see some Randy/Cartman POVs. Thanks for writing!
