My dad found out in april of this year that he has terminal pancreatic cancer with about 18 months to live, has anyone any advice for him, and also myself and my mum and sister on how best to deal with it, he has never been ill really and this as come as a big blow because hes only 59 and has worked all his life for his retirement that he now wont enjoy!!!! :lol:
So sorry to hear this batgirl, I had a friend....Well more like a coworker< martin, with pancreatic cancer......We were quite close for work mates...He too was given 18 months....But alas his body could only hold up for 3-4 months.
For daddy I suggest living every moment to the fullest...All the rules are off...Run up the visa, do everything you've always wanted...But make sure all the other details are taken care of...That is if he is capable of doing this...No sense to leave this to the family as this time will be very difficult enough as it is.
For the rest of the family..........Enjoy every moment, take pics to concrete the memories, say everything you always wanted to say, now!, live and laugh..............And for goodness sake everyone do not wait until retirement to "do what you always wanted to do". Life doesn't get better by itself, it needs a little push.
Love and blessings your way :)
Thanks to the nice people who have replied to my earlier messages!!! It was great to hear from people who have been in contact with people who had pancreatic cancer I have taken on board what you have said thanks again very much xx
