i'd prob feel a little bad for the owners of the program and family... if I had never had a conversation with them. Not the nicest to deal with.
I am inclined to feel bad for them as well and I wouldn't wish a tumor/cancer on anyone, regardless of how I feel about them. It's devastating.
But you also have to wonder how such a life changing diagnosis and impending surgery only requires delaying discovery by 30 days. You can do a lot in 30 days, like clean your books, transfer money to the Cayman Islands, etc. but beating cancer isn't one of them.
