It's been a tough 2 weeks since we found that my wifes cancer had returned and spread. We have been told that they can't cure it but can only try to manage her pain with medication and some radiotherapy.The cancer has appeared in her lung,skull,neck,lower spine,ribs and leg. My wife asked if they could put a time frame on her life expectancy, they told her no but they also told her to enjoy family time and make as many happy times as possible and take heaps of videos.Palliative care have been great with organising her medication and they are organising support for our 3 young kids.The team we have working for us at the hospital have been fantastic with all the wifes treatment and the support we are getting. I'm really scared of losing my wife and having to raise our 3 kids without her.
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.
