Ever since I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I keep hearing about the various cancer “journeys” that I and many others have supposedly embarked on. But this is certainly not the "holiday of a lifetime". Instead I feel (in my early sixties) like a small child who has been forced to start school and become educated, whether she likes it or not!


One year on from Mum's passing today. Intense grief is still locked in memories, particularly of those last days. Can even an expected death create trauma?


I never imagined losing a brother to cancer would be very painful, let alone losing 2 brothers to this cruel and sickening disease - Cancer.


An amazing time to find out who your real friends are,

My partner's kids have been amazing. When I was receiving chemo in Perth and was looking pretty dodgy (the consultants words were 3 -4 weeks) they jumped jets and flew from Hong Kong and Sydney to support me and their mum.


My wife Barbara is now six months after a Whipple, amazing how your personal life changes and as a carer I am always alert to those changers.



I am caring for my mother who has had surgery for a large tumor on her tongue, needless to say her eating is limited to soft runny foods and her talking is very hard to understand. Her weight has dropped sufficiently and her energy levels are very low.
