Link to Gina G's Cancer Diary - 2012-2016

Hi folks! A while ago I informed you that my lovely girlfriend, known to you as Gina G, had passed away. I mentioned at the time that she wanted her cancer diary (2012-2016) to be made available to you. It can be a bit of a harrowing read but you may find it informative. You can access it on the following blog page: ginagcancerdiary.blogspot.c...

I wish you true happiness and strength this Christmas (which can be a very emotional time of the year) and the very best of luck for 2017.

Much love,

Ronnie x

Thanks very much for this. I found it very helpful reading that she was herself, and asking for her needs to be met, until the end. I hope you are finding Christmas bearable. I have a funeral next week. A 93 year old but it's a very strange time to be bereaved.

Hi Ronnie

I have just finished reading the diary and a brave lady shone through it all. I found myself getting angry while reading the parts describing the indifference of some of the medical profession .She put up such a fight to get on the various trials while all the time dealing with the relentless advance of this horrific disease. It's effect on the dignity of women needs to be shouted from the rooftops . Why is it still the silent killer ? I found myself in tears through much of the diary and scared for the future . The one good constant through the story was your support for her. Thank you for allowing us to read her diary. May her lovely memory bring you future happiness .

I've spent the last few days reading this, between internet nightmare s, despite all the time I've known Gina I didn't realise she blogged. Her honest recount of the debilitating effect of treatment and lack of team undergoing highlights how strong she was. May Gina RIP. Sending you cyber vibes of strength for this difficult time. Thanks for the link

Thank you for posting and sharing this incredible account of Gina's experience. I read it yesterday and found it to be a really profound, moving and detailed narrative of her interaction with the medical system. What really impacted on me (and scared me also) was how she had to be her own advocate within the medical and treatment system all the time, even in the later stages when she was so unwell and in such pain and discomfort. She was so courageous and brave.

Thinking of you at this really difficult and sad time.

Ronnie, thank you for taking the time to edit and post Gina's Diary. This is a heartbreaking revelation of your ordeal together. I will probably die of this disease and being able to read of Gina's experience brings me relief. I have an idea of what awaits me and I am not so very afraid. Your loving support for Gina is inspirational. Thank you for loving her and seeing her through her illness until the very end.
