My dad


Sad to have to say my dad passed away on the 19th December. A short 12 weeks after being diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer.

The cancer was too advanced for him to receive any treatment that would have been of any real benefit, and he died at home peacefully, thanks to the wonderful support we received from the MacMillan and District Nursing Teams.

RIP dad.

Love you lots 😢💗😢

Sending love to you all and thinking of you

I cant wait for christmas to be over. Sending best wishes to you all and my messages are open if you ever want to chat xx

Thank you.It’s been a horrendous few weeks and it still feels unreal. Such a quick decline in his health - nine weeks from cancer diagnosis to passing. I hope he was comfortable - I did my best.

Love to you and your dad xxx

Thank you ❤️Your dad knows you did your best and was his biggest support ❤️I’m so scared if I take a moment to just think what’s happening with my dad. Nothing will ever be the same and it’s heartbreaking.
