I was diagnosed on New Year’s Eve in 2010 and have undergone hormone therapy, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, an operation to replace part of his spine where the cancer had spread, and is now taking a new drug which could give him a further four to 17 months to live.
Being diagnosed with cancer was like being hit with a sledgehammer.
I currently undergo treatment at the Sandra Champan Centre at the JPH Hospital, The staff at the Sandra Chapman Centre are excellent. It makes it so much easier when the staff are nice and there are other patients there if you want to chat who can share their experiences. It’s a very harsh thing for people to go through alone.
I will be having my head shaved at The Gillingham Swan on February 22, whilst there with Friends celebrating my 60 Birthday.
