    My mum has just been diagnosed with cervical cancer stage 4b. It is in the lymph nodes in her chest and the dr is giving up saying they can treat the tumor but as for the rest they dont care. I guess its because of her age but she is healthier than me. Im at a loss as they gave her a year to live. Im devasted as to why they cant treat the nodes.

    Has been a while since I have been on this site, Pete lost his battle with GBM 6/9/13. Things started to change when he got lost going to work on the 19/8/13, quickly we saw changes to the point on the following Monday 26/8/13 I called for him to be taken for assesment so I could get our house prepared for the new Pete.
    As he got assessed our wonderful coordinator told me that he was more then likely not coming home so onto the palliative hospital waiting list he went. Pete never got out of bed again.

    I can't believe it has been 7 months since he left us.......
    In that time we have celebrated his 40th birthday, Easter, Mother's Day, our daughters eighth birthday, Father's Day and our wedding anniversary.....
    All days were cause for celebration......Father's Day was tough though....both the kids struggled during the week beforehand...making presents in their classrooms for a dad who no longer exists was tough......
    But they handled it....on the day itself we decided to paint a wall in our house his favourite colour- we now have a black wall in the!!

    So I have been releasing a whole bunch of stuff that I have written over the past year or so and it has been a good feeling. Almost as if I am letting go of certain things in the past. This one I wrote about when I was sick and how it affected the relationship I was in at the time.

    Hi everyone, my name is Elizabeth. I have joined one of these sites before, not quite sure yet how it works, or how to navigate, so any help would be great. I am early 60's, and over the last 10 years, we have travelled the cancer journey with my husband - prostate, lung, brain, now lung, possibly cancer. At the same time my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer, and lost her battle 2 1/2 years ago. I had bowel cancer 4 years ago.

    Two weeks ago, my aunty was diagnosed with...well I'm not even sure. The doctors say it developed from a melanoma she had removed years ago.

    She has 4 tumours in her head, and masses throughout her body. They won't give her a time or anything, just that they won't operate.

    This week, Tuesday, I was checked for any return of my bladder cancer - there was nothing there, which I am so thankful for.
