Lost My Mum & Dad To Cancer Just 2 Years Apart

Lost my Dad 2009. He was 67. From Diagnosis to Death, 6 months. Then 2 years later (in 2011) my Mum was diagnosed with Stomach Cancer which has spread all through her body. From Diagnosis to Death 2 months. Mum was 66. Both fit and healthy all their lives. Also lost my Nan to Ovarian Cancer (aged 71), my Aunt to Breast cancer (aged 54) and my cousin to Breast Cancer (aged 34). I attend the Hereditary Cancer Unit at Christie's. Don't know what else to say.

I am so sorry. I lost my parents recently to cancer also. My father died first of colon cancer. My mother died soon after that of brain and breast cancers. I understand where you are and if you need to chat please feel free to contact me.
