When i first had chemo the nurse who was treating me sat me next to a fella called Freddie. A very thoughtfull gentleman who talked me through my horrible reaction to rituximab. He was a real inspiration and calming influence. Amazingly it turned out we only lived in the next village and we became good mates as did our partners. Sadly he contracted pneumonia a few weeks ago and lost the fight saturday.
RIP mate you will be missed.
