Today my mum starts the long fight against this horrible disease with her first session of chemo. Mum was diagnosed 6 weeks ago with inoperable stage 4 lung cancer. As she has never smoked this came as a huge shock to the family. I am the eldest of 4 children and I had the horrible task of telling my two younger sisters and brother this awful news as mum and dad just couldn't. We are trying to stay strong for mum's sake but as you can all imagine this is really hard.
Our attitude to this cancer is that it's picked on the wrong family and we will all fight it tooth and nail. Mum is willing to go through whatever the consultants suggest as she's got a lot of family (my dad, four children, 8 grandchildren and a great grandchild) to live for.
The thought of my mum not being around is NOT an option so "cancer" you better watch you ass cause we are about to give it a very strong kick.
