I've said before that I lost both of my Grandad's to cancer.
I don't really remember a lot about my Grandad Neville's diagnosis, I was quite young and shielded from it, thankfully.
My Grandad Ron lived for over 6 years with his prostate cancer before it spread to his bones and then he had another 4 years. We had 10 years that in the past we wouldn't have had. Hopefully in another 10 years time other people will be getting longer still with their grandparents.
