Re: My mum's story so far

Becky, I am sorry to hear about your mum, but you never know, there are different sorts of chemo and some work better for some than others, so it might just be trying to find the one that suits your mum. I know that this is such a terrible shock and so much distress to live with, but for some the di...

Re: Dads diagnosis :(

Katie, I am so sorry to hear your news. My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 with mets to his lungs on 27 March 2014. He was quite well in himself, except for weight loss and was only diagnosed after paying for a battery of tests privately, camera up, down and all sorts. His only symptom was losing...

Re: Trevor's Story

Dear Sandra, I am so very sorry for your loss. 49 years, 3 months and 9 days, that's just so brilliant. We have been married 35 years, 2 weeks and 3 days and that's so much longer than any of our friends and family, so we feel lucky in that respect, despite the vicious PC. Your family sounds like th...

Re: Wish someone would help him

Dear Leila, I am so very sorry that your dad has gone. I don't know if unconscious people can think, but my understanding is that they can often still hear, so probably. You and your dad were so close and you've been there throughout and even in the worst situations, still managed to share your expe...

Re: My 41 years old husband has inoperable pancreatic cancer

Susanna, you are so amazingly brave. I can't begin to imagine how you cope with the boys and everything. I'm also on the point of tears all the time, so do understand that and crying in secret. I also understand about his feelings of not wanting your boys to see him, James although still carrying on...

Oh Susanna, I am so sorry things are so awful. I hope your Twins had a nice time at their party, it's nice that they have each other.
