I met an old friend at the oncology clinic 2 days before xmas last year I asked what are you doing here she said i have just been told i have lung cancer but that it is cureable with radiation and a short dose of chemotherapy they started after xmas she had no problems with chemo ate like a horse after radiation she was admitted back to hospital with dehydration then in and out of hospital regularly we spoke on phone regularly to see how each other was going i was too sick from chemo to visit and i had continual colds so had to stay away 2 weeks ago her husband rang me and said she was in icu she couldnt breathe properly and passed away thursday evening I cant understand how they could say we can cure you and this happens family and friends heartbroken as i am also.
I feel for you, it is devastating to lose someone KJ.
Expressing your feelings can be a comfort, you can do that here anytime.
Knowing that others listen, and sharing experiences can be a relief in its self.
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.
