It was 5 years today that my wife died from OC, after fighting (prob not the right word) it for nearly 3 years.
I met her in 1969 when she came over to England aged 17 (from Cork) with her sister and some friends for a summer working holiday. We met and fell in love, three daughters later...and the rest as they say is history.
When she got and beat a brain tumour we both really thought that her health luck, for want of a better phrase, would take an upturn, but a few years later she got OC.
I get asked quite a few times if I would marry again, or whatever, and the truth is yes I would, but right now I am still in love with Christina and as such haven't even been on a date. I know Christina would be happy regardless of what happens in the future for me.
In the 'about' section of the profile I have detailed how we were let down by a certain Onc…..that doesn't detract from the good we got via the NHS. Sadly however, its the bad we remember most.
I have 'poked my nose' into this site a few times over the years and I am happy that some of the contributors who were around during Christinas time are still doing well. Long may that continue. I do think that as parp inhibitors and targeted treatment becomes more commonplace, survival rates will increase. For everyone - I really hope so.
So forgive me for this 'personal post' but ……. Anyway good luck to one and all and take good care.
