Earlier this year we lost a special lady! Auntie Judy had a melanoma removed from her arm in 2013. Following 5 years of follow ups there were no further concerns.
Unfortunately on 6th of January this year she was admitted to A and E, to be told she had cancer. On the 7th January it was diagnosed in a number of organs including stomach, lungs, bones, liver and spleen. A few days later it was confirmed to have spread to her brain also. Auntie Judy deteriorated quickly she was cared for round the clock, she was made comfy and my Uncle spent everyday visiting her. Sadly on 31st January she lost her battle.
Prevention is by far better than cure! It’s not foolproof but check your skin, monitor moles, and wear sun cream!
Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 10k to raise money and save lives.
