In the ultimate golfing test, me and a band of heros are looking to take on 72 holes and about 20 miles of course in one day. Because golf’s all about playing together, we are going to take on this epic challenge, we know we’ve got each others back. When the going gets tough, we’ll keep going – through each of the 72 holes and over every step of the 20 miles.
Around 3 years ago, after a major operation, we were told one of the hardest pieces of news you can hear. Your wife is dealing with Cancer. To top it all, the Cancer we are dealing with is on the rare Cancer list, affecting only 2 in a million people. It was first diagnosed as a slow growing low grade Cancer called PMP (Pseudomyxoma Peritonei). The only way to beat this arse of a disease was for Sarah to have what is know as 'The Mother of All Surgeries'. After a difficult year in 2017, and 6 months of recovery, Sarah managed to get back on her feet. In April last year, we found out that the Cancer had come back. We then had to endure 6 months of Chemotherapy (and its awesome side effects). This year, we have been told the Chemo was unsuccesful, the cancer is acting like high grade (and hence has grown back significantly) and the only other option now is more surgery.
The hospital that deals with this rare strain of Cancer is in Basingstoke. There is a department called Peritoneal Malignancy Institute and the Ward C2 Fund (charity number 4237) that provide amazing healthcare for patients and accomodation for relatives. I know this first hand as I spent 14 days in this accomodation whilst helping nurse Sarah back to health.
There is also a charity called Pseudomyxoma Survivor, who raise awareness for pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP), appendix cancer or another peritoneal surface malignancys. They are there to provide emotional support and practical advice, through an online community that’s proven to make a real difference. Pseudomyxoma Survivor is a patient and caregiver run organisation offering advice on managing symptoms and all aspects of living with this rare disease; they advocate for patients and more. As well as all this, they are people you can share experiences with and share the laughter and the tears.
