Cancer Sucks!

Yep - it does.

I have some other words for it as well  - most of them are only four letters long!!

My Dad was diagonosed with Malanoma in May 2008 and has had quite the battle on his hands over this time and yesterday he had another big op to remove cancer from his groin.

In the most unhappy of news it was discovered that the cancer has now moved to his pelvis and more heartbreaking to his Aorta - we were all gutted last night and went to bed feeling very defeated - I can not even imagine how Dad felt.

I am flying to Sydney tomorrow morning to see him and most importantly spend time with Mum who has lived with the highs and lows of cancer with Dad for so long.

He is staying at Royal North Shore for the next 10 days at the least and then he has to decide whether he wants to undergo another round of chemo - I hope that he does but that's just a daughter being selfish - the last round that he had in 2009 really buggered him up so I won't be suprised if he chooses not to.

So I ask you to say a little prayer for my Dad and a prayer for your loved ones that are too battling this dreadful disease.
