Holds breath and types….. so, I've got cancer…
Good luck and a dubious welcome to the club no one wants to be in. It sounds like you’re in the best position to face something like this, you’re fit but most of all your wife loves you. You’ll hear all sorts of advice and stories, love yours for you as there is no one exactly like you.Posted 4 years ago
Trust the doctors, love your wife and be honest.MoreCashThanDashSubscriber
There is nothing I can do or say that can possibly make any practical difference, but I really hope you fight this and win.
I (we) are getting to an age when things like this are no longer happening to strangers, and it’s a right bugger.
Hang on in there, stay strong, and take whatever support you can wherever it can come fromPosted 4 years agobullheartMember
Hello there old friend,
Once upon a time, a foolhardy Northerner and his delightful wife managed to make a man with a hybrid heart and high on drugs look beautiful and handsome on his wedding day, despite not being paid in monetary terms, and without either having ever met before. The man with the hybrid heart never forgot the selflessness of the act; an act that would significantly contribute to a change in the way he acted towards others. He also told the Northerner that he would be indebted to him, and would repay the kindness in full, at a time of the Northerners choosing…
I am at your service, and will do all I can to help you win your battle.

Very best wishes. Hundreds of people beat cancer every day – stay positive and make sure you’re one of them!
My MIL was diagnosed with lung cancer about 18 months ago. She’s now all-clear and doing amazingly well.
I don’t know where you are, but if you’re in or near London anytime (e.g. If needed for treatment or anything), don’t hesitate to drop me a line for dinner and a beer…
Best wishes – fight hard and beat it!

Chris really sorry to hear that. from what I can give as some advice my partner was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, she had surgery to remove the lump and has since been going through chemotherapy. It’s tough for me and I can’t begin to imagine what she and you are going through.
We are fortunate to have had excellent care and fingers crossed the outcome will be a positive one. My partner is determined to beat it, after all she wants to be around for our 16 math old lad.
Take care, hope and determination will help you beat this as well as help and support from wherever you seek it.Posted 4 years agomboySubscriber
Didn’t want to read this, as I didn’t with Bullheart’s when he posted it, but like a moth to a flame!
It’s crazy how much emotion is stirred up, even amongst total strangers, when the Big C is mentioned. When people talk about it in open conversation, I have to blank it out otherwise it just gets me going. But then with a post on the internet, you’ve got no choice but to take in the details…
Cue the waterworks! 😥
Can’t begin to understand how you’re feeling right now, especially so far into the Chemo, but as someone who’s been there, helping loved ones whilst they suffer with the disease, you have my utmost sympathy and respect!
Good luck. I wish you all the luck in the world. Stay strong, be positive despite how you might be feeling. A Positive mental attitude makes more different to recovering from terminal illnesses than any doctor would ever let you believe!Posted 4 years agobazwadahMember
Chris, just wanted to add my voice to the many others that wish you all the best in fighting this. Your doctors, loved ones and friends will help you overcome this illness and for those of us on STW that haven’t met you, well just let us know if there’s anything we can do.Posted 4 years agoBen_mwSubscriber
Morning Chris, ’tis good to hear from you again. I haven’t been out with the Marsden lot for ages, so I’ve not had the chance to speak to those a little closer to you for a while now. I can’t add anything to what has been posted before, so keep fighting it mate. I’m sure you’ll get plenty of support and offers of help on here, please make use of them.Posted 4 years ago
It’s just dawned on me that the you organised the first ever STW ride I went on! So I look forward to another!
Best wishes from me and Hazel.NaranjadaMember
I once came over to Marsden with some others (nbt and Bunnyhop + many more) for a Pennine Pootle; you were there and helped lead us round. After a lovely wet ride we ended up back at your house where your lovely wife (sorry I forget her name …I’m bad with names) had made food or us to eat. We all sat down at your table and you shared your food, warmth and hospitality, alongside some great laughs …I seem to remember nbt was on good form 😉 It was the nicest post ride nosh ever and lingers in my memory.
Anyway, you’re a good man and you can beat anything with a positive outlook and our wonderful NHS.
When you’re feeling stronger, and we have a dry spell!, let’s do that ride again!
Best of luck.
