Hi all, my name is Lynn, I have had skin cancer 2008, my mum was diagnosed in 2014 with peri-anal cancer, came through it. My mother in law died same year with lung cancer after a hard fought battle.
Got news today that mum's cancer has spread, we know it is in her lymph nodes and various additional scans and biopsies planned to see where else.
My mum is not in the best of health generally and I am her only child. I am a Nurse and thought I was coping, until today, I completely broke down and I am angry with myself as I need to be strong for mum and my kids.
Like most people, esp in West of Scotland, cancer is the horror feared, I am well aware how advanced treatment is and our hospital is utterly amazing, however, I am terrified! I will be coming on for support as I need to be focused and contain my family. Thank you for reading and letting me rant..
