I have been reading the posts here and I want to reply to them and try to make these poor people feel a little better but just have no idea what to say. So I have decide to just add my own post and say I wish everyone luck on getting through their horiable sad times. It all makes me feel like I have very little to worry about with my boyfriend having melanoma because at least he is seemingly healthy at the moment. I guess my time will come but for now I have decided to just go along with him and act like nothing much is going on. I am guessing there will be plenty of tough times ahead for us so untill then I will try not to worry. My heart goes out to each and every one of you. I remember back to when my step dad was suffering, it was a very hard 5 months but luckly not to long. I think its better when its a shorter time. I hated watching him suffer. Most of or family sat with him on his last day and he hung on till most of us had left to go home. We got a call about 5 minutes after we were home that he had passed away. So sad but also a releaf that is suffering had come to an end. To everyone out there I wish you luck and strengh to deal with everything you need to deal with. Thats all I have to say right now. My thought are with you all.
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.
