Hi and Welcome....

The reason for my blog is that Colin had Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma (secondary kidney cancer). In addition to this, his eldest brother David died in April 2008, 5 weeks after being diagnosed with Laryngeal Cancer and his elder sister Sue was diagnosed with Lobular Breast Cancer in March 2009. All that said, I am still smiling and trying to be up beat about everything because if I wasn’t I don’t think I would cope as well as I have so far. Sadly Colin passed away on 23rd Dec 2009.

If you would like to follow or comment on this blog, then please feel free.

Treatment 1 - Day 5

Colin had dose 8 at 2am then dose 9 at 11.45 all going ok apart from Colin now has constipation, hopefully some sennacot will sort that out and he will get dose 10 this evening. I have received the polo shirts I ordered for race for life and am now planning what to put on them. If anyone wants to sponsor me my link is http://www.raceforlifesponsorme.org/colswife which is organised by Cancer Research UK. Hopefully we will be picking Colin up from Manchester on Sunday as Kieran is looking forward to seeing his Dad and has missed him this week. Again thanks for all your support and good wishes.
