RIP My lovely dad
I didn’t know where to put this but need to write it down - I haven’t been on for a while because I've been spending a lot of time with dad.
He was diagnosed with Stage 3 bowel cancer 10 years ago almost to the day. Had chemo/radio and surgery then lung recurrence 4 years later. More surgery and Avastin and it knocked the bugger on the head. Had 4 more good clear years and then they found small cell lung cancer 18 months ago. Unfortunately it was very aggressive and despite more chemo and surgery it was too much.
Two weeks ago we were told that he had less than 6 months to live - he died in the early hours of Saturday morning very peacefully and he was ready to go.
RIP dad, I miss you more than I can express but it makes me more determined to beat this horrible disease if I have anything to do with it!!
