looking for hope

I was diagnosed with PC and liver mets at the end of September 2018. I started chemo very quickly and had round 5 mid December. I choose to have a chemo break during the Christmas holiday because I wanted to enjoy the festivities and to be honest I haven't felt as well as I do at this present moment...

Re: My big brother
