Dad is terminal, I'm usually the glue that holds the family together but I've fallen in a heap and not coping
Dad has been battling throat cancer for over a year now, we got good news just before Christmas that his cancer was gone, now a few months later it's back with a vengance and we don't know how long he has. I've always been the strong one in the family holding things together and daddy's little girl. Up until yesterday I was praying hoping that the oncologist would give us some hope... but all he could say was we would try palliative chemo and for dad to make peace in the family. Today, I just can't cope, I love my daddy so much, I just don't know how to hold it together.
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.
