Fuck off, do you hear me? Now just fuck the fuck off angry

Yesterday, we said goodbye to my Uncle after a long fight with Cancer. My wonderful, brave Uncle sad

Our family friend is also terminally ill with bowel cancer. He had a rupture, and had to have his bowel removed via emergency surgery a few days ago. This is the one thing he never wanted to happen. All he wants is his dignity sad

Today, I find out that my Best friends MIL has also now been diagnosed as terminal. All she had was a sore hip. Her body is riddled. She's got two grandchildren she cares for due to family reasons. I feel sick to the stomach about what could happen to those wonderful boys sad

How many more? I'm so angry tonight!

My former diving instructor (and very good friend) has prostate cancer. So has one of the founder members of our archery club, who is also a very good friend. It killed my great-aunt. My mum has survived skin cancer and is being monitored. Two days ago one of my colleagues and friends lost her DH to liver cancer - he was 63.

If anger could cure cancer, it would not exist any more.

My Dad in 2010 from lung cancer. He only lived for 10 days after diagnosis.

Expat - Saw the sampler picture on FB & her wonderful smile.

My old boss's wife died of cancer at 33. She thought she had injured her knee ski-ing, but her kneecap was one big tumor. She fought so hard, it spread to her spine and her lungs. She was desperate to be a mum, but it never happened. sad

Trazzletoes Wed 10-Oct-12 22:04:33

Cancer is shit. Really really REALLY fucking shit. DMil 7 years ago, just after our engagement. I miss her every day.

DS was diagnosed last week. Desperately hoping he is one of the lucky ones, but already sick to the stomach at what his little body is having to endure less than a week in.

My poor mother aged 48 from stomach cancer ( peritonitis actually killed her ) my father aged 84.

My dear sister has been in remission from breast cancer for 14 years.

Fuck you cancer. Fuck, fuck, fuck you.

BustyDeLaGhetto Wed 10-Oct-12 22:22:07

My DF has just finished months of horrible treatment for throat cancer which has whittled his joyful, gregarious personality to a shadow.

Expat - your daughter is the reason I signed up to the Anthony Nolan register. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Its a hideous disease which robs people of so much which they hold dear to them, my thoughts are with everyone on this thread.

Yama Wed 10-Oct-12 22:22:34

My lovely wee brother aged 32. He left a baby daughter. And all of us of course, who miss him every day. He had bowel cancer - truly awful.

Trazzletoes Wed 10-Oct-12 22:23:32

Trazzletoes It isn't fucking fair. I can't begin to imagine how you must be feeling. Wishing you love and strength x

Tuttutitlookslikerain Wed 10-Oct-12 22:32:52

Trazzle it is not fair, not at all. It shouldn't happen to beautiful, little children. Please, please, please shout if there is anything we can do. Anything at allxxx

Rindercella Wed 10-Oct-12 22:38:54

I posted on a friend's FB earlier, when she said a friend of hers had just died from it that cancer is, a fucking bastard disease.

I lost my beautiful, wonderful, gorgeous DH to it 18 months ago this Saturday. It is shit. What happened to him was shocking and shit and painful and unbearable. Until you see it up close like that, you just don't 'get' what a bastard it is, do you? sad

I am so sorry for everyone's losses and Trazzle, I wish you much love and strength and hope your gorgeous DS comes through this.

McPhee Wed 10-Oct-12 22:47:27

Trazzle, no it's not fair at all.

Stay strong x

None of us deserve such heartache in life sad
