Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives.
1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.
I have recently lost my Dad to cancer on the 26th of April.
Where do I start. This has all happed so fast it still doesn't feel real.
Back in October 2018 we noticed dad was struggling to find his words and shortly after that he had all sorts of tests and they couldn't find anything and he was fit as a fiddle , then he had his head scan and then they found the brain tumour. They then did a full body scan but did not find anything so did a second head scan and the tumour had doubled in size and told us it was grade 4 and very agressive cancer, it was then we were told they couldn't do anything and dad would have less then a yearto live.
After that we all spent every minute enjoying time with dad, but as time past dad was struggling with day to day tasks and stared having falls at home and one day fell in the bathroom and had to get him to hospital to make sure he was ok, and after two weeks in hospital he then went to a care home. Where he stayed for five weeks and passed away on Friday evening on the 26th April with mum and I holding his hand.
