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.

Off to Cheltenham

Treatment in Manchester has been suspended until Colin's head has been sorted (that could take a while ;-)).

After a lot of hassle - Colin not being referred to oncology by the hospital last week and us having to go and ask GP on Monday to refer him, I managed to get Colin an Appt with an Oncologist in Cheltenham for Thurs at 12.30.
They originally offered him an Appt for Wed 5th Aug, which I said was not acceptable and that he needed to be seen this week and hey it worked. I can be very persuasive when I need to be.

I will try and update this later with any more news.
