My husband has started treatment for lung cancer, he has never smoked its a form of cancer normally young Asian woman get. It's hard to watch a person who was always very active not be able to do much. People have generally been very good with their positive comment and wishes. And we are trying to stay positive and retain a sense of humour. I had someone ask me the other day what his life expectancy was, I didn't know how to answer, I thought it was the crappiest thing to ask. I don't even want to ask the doctor that. I would rather people ring and be positive. Was I wrong to feel like this.
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.
