It's been a tough year. My husband gavin was diagnosed with a rare nose cancer last September and I was so scared that I was going to lose him. It was such a relief when the results came back that it hadn't spread but he then had to go through two big operations and had his nose removed. I did all I could to give him all the support I could. It was so hard seeing him go through all that and trying to keep a brave face for our little boy jake. He's on the road to recovery now but it's taken a lot out of us all mentally. We will get there, we're lucky to have a fantastic family and wonderful friends to get us through. We appreciate how lucky we are because in may we lost our beautiful neighbour ann to cancer.she was taken way too soon and we miss her dearly. That's why we need to do all we can to help beat cancer!
