Cancer strikes again. Years ago I sat holding the hand of a long-term family friend who was more like an Uncle as he took his last breath after battling cancer, I've just found out his wife (who's hand I also held as he passed away) now has cancer and is due to have her bladder removed soon.
Both mum and Dad have both suffered from cancer the past few years and I've lost many others over my life. At our wedding we asked people donate to Macmillan Cancer Support instead of giving us gifts and were humbled by everyone's generosity. The support they provide is immeasurable to cancer victims and their families... most personally there were times when my mum was close to ending it all with the stress and depression caused by having cancer and financial worries, Macmillan helped her through this with support with benefits, being there on the phone and visiting her when we couldn't. If it wasn't for them I'd probably not have a mum right now.
I'm sure many reading this will have seen loved ones suffer from cancer; this forum has seen a fair few cancer threads over the years!
if you don't think twice about spending 3 pounds on a coffee or a beer then please go to the Macmillan Website and give them some money instead. It's worth missing out on a coffee for the sake of helping somebody. Thank you.
