There is no title that sums it up



My dad has cancer. Advanced colon cancer that has spread at least to his liver but we don't yet know the full extent.

my mother died of breast cancer on the 1st July 1998.

Cancer is a fucking bastard.

I have just discovered your blog. And reading back though the posts found this one.
I can sympathize with you, not because like you I have had two parents that have had cancer ( you no that technically we are are a rare breed - children with parents who both have cancer)
My dad died 18months ago, suffering from two kinds of cancers, but only one killed him. My mum, is dying as a write this riddled with ovarian cancer. Cancer is a bastard does not sum it up. Im 37 I have to have a hysterectomy and must consider a mastectomy, due to the cancer genes that I now carry. The horror of having to explain all of this to the three lovely children I have is terrible. Cancer has become such a big part of the community and everyones lives, that sorry becomes so mundane. I do feel for you, and hope that your father does not suffer. My thoughts are with you and the loving family you seem to have
