Hi all well after being diagnosed nearly 2 weeks ago we have finally told 2 of our grandchildren that I have cancer. They are the older 2 one is eight and one is five, (Girls). We did not go into too many details just said Nana would be unwell for a little while and would not be able to run around as I normally do ( as I am normally very fit and active and play football, dance, and run around with them at the park) We told them Nana had a bad tummy and her hair may fall out. They seemed to take it ok, I told them if I did not see them for a couple of days that I still loved them very much but I may be too tired to have them stay over. Just wondered if anyone else has done the same as me, I have not said anything to the other 5 granchildren as they are all under 4 and dont think they would understand. Babs
