It has been a week since my parents told me my dad has Colon Cancer.
Devastation doesn’t even comprehend how I feel. Honestly my world just came to a giant halt and started falling down around me. We are a very open family and could easily talk and comfort each other but I have never experienced something like this.
I feel sad for my parents, how can you tell your pregnant daughter that one of her parents has cancer. I’m glad they did though I want to be there every step of the way.
We don’t know much at the moment, we are waiting on more tests and scans to confirm what the situation is, I pray so hard that he will be ok and that he would be around to see his grandchild. The love I have for y parents is unexplainable, they are my world and I don’t know what I would do without either of them.
I have a great support system, when I first found out I was pregnant I became part of a Facebook group for mums who are due around the same time as me and when I reached out for support I was surrounded by well wishes and love. The support from the ladies is just that little virtual hug I needed. They were telling me of similar situations they have been through with family members and themselves.
So Cancer you can pack your bags and leave, good riddance!
