After a year of trying to get a diagnosis for my Dad's pain, he was finally diagnosed last year on 20 March 2016 with terminal pancreatic cancer. He was given 3 months to live as his cancer was so far advanced treatment was not an option at this point and he had been diagnosed too late.
My lovely Dad passed away 8 weeks later at home.
My Dad was the one with cancer but it affected my family too. Everyone lives with cancer in some way. Watching my Dad suffer with the pain for so long before being diagnosed was so hard. I'm so proud of how brave my Dad was. He didn't want to die; he wanted to live and experience more of life.
Cancer is cruel and I'm doing face for life in memory of my Dad and to help raise money for a cure and to stop anymore suffering.
