Re: Newly diagnosed 45 yr old mum of 4

Hi Marie So glad to hear about your wonderful day - how precious, and what lovely friends you have (in my experience, lovely people tend to draw lovely people around them). I like how you write too, I could just picture the gallery, the light and the paintings. It is certainly the little or simple t...

Re: So frightened for my Dad

Thank you so much Leila for your messages, your words are a great comfort, I didn't really think before about it all that way, but you are so right about how we have loved each other. And some of the most precious times are not always the most obvious, it can be simply a private moment, a throw away...

Re: Unable to cope

Leila, I'm so so sorry that you're going through this. It sounds like you were an amazing support for your Dad and it is heart breaking that you feel so alone. I lost my Dad yesterday after a very short battle with pancreatic cancer, and I had no idea how it would feel - I thought I could anticipate...

Re: So frightened for my Dad

Hello all, sorry I haven't posted in a while. Just to let you all know that my Dad passed away peacefully yesterday morning.

Re: So frightened for my Dad

Hello Sandra, thanks for your message. So sorry to hear that you lost your husband, it's so terribly sad. My sister and I are trying to support my mum wherever we can but at times feel quite useless. Sometimes it's enough just to go and sit with my dad while she goes out for a bit, it is such a full...

Re: So frightened for my Dad

Thank you Leila for your kindness and advice, so sorry to hear that you lost your Dad. I'm not sure what medications Dad is on, my Mum is looking after Dad and attending appointments etc - she is an absolute star and I'm so proud of her - and of course helping Dad manage his medication. Perhaps it w...

I am so overwhelmed by all the replies and kind words from everybody here - thank you all so, so much. It seems I have a lot to learn about this horrible illness. Although it is a comfort to know that my family is not alone in going through all this, it saddens me so much to think that others are su...

Re: So frightened for my Dad

Thank you so much Lyn for reading my post and for your kind words. I'm so sorry to hear that you lost your husband and I'm sure you must treasure the last months you had with him. As I understand it, there are different types of pancreatic cancer (I'm new to all this so I don't have specifics), Dad'...

Nine weeks ago, my parents were on holiday with us in Crete and my Dad ...
