Just found out today that my sister has stomach cancer (age 71).
Another sister has been cancer-free for over 12 months, after breast cancer (age 68).
I myself had T2N1M0 SCC in the tongue in 2012 (age 43).
PRIOR to all this crap, we lost another sister to melanoma (31), our mother to bowel cancer (67) and our father to renal cancer (84).
To say we're over it is an understatement. On the plus side, we're having more luck fighting it off than we used to.
Luckily, I happen to have an appointment with my psychologist tomorrow, just by co-incidence, so I'll unload my frustrations on her.
End of rant.
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.
