I don't know how many times I've been told to get over cancer its certainly a loss that sticks wih you forever.
The hardest thing is losing my dad at a young age I was 3 my sisters were 1 & 5 it's so sad that I don't remember his voice or what his faveroite colours are.
Grief has affected me and the ones I know differently my dad named me so grief is always a lingering thing it's a mind blurr and you start to panic and break down crying. My mum cries around my dads family
I think what makes me more upset is how forgotten my dad is to some of my other family members I feel that often its my mums side and my dads side of the family are non existsant I and my sisters make a concious effort to be close to my dads side.
I wonder what other sorts of grief are out there regarding cancer
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
