Hi all, 

I've posted on here before seeking help with coping on how to deal with my dad's cancer battle. After 10 long months, heaven has today taken my dad, aged just 56!!

I need help people. He was my best friend. The man I went to for anything and everything. How do I cope? How do I handle this? How does this big gaping hole in my heart heal?



Rest In Peace Dad. Love you loads!!

Hi, firstly I’m so sorry for your loss Sad I lost my mum at the end of June so can imagine the feelings your going through right now. I’m afraid I don’t know much advice that I can offer as I am still feeling the pain now but I didn’t want to read and not reply. I guess talking about how your feeling is always good and to know that there are other people feeling the way you are who can support you is always good.

stay strong and do your dad proud xx

I'm so sorry to hear your sad news and there are really no words.

I felt exactly the same as you this time last year after losing my mam to breast cancer- she too was my everything.

I don't think our hearts ever do heal - but I feel like she's with me always - the phrases I say, my appearance, my actions and most importantly the love we'll always feel. One of my favourite quotes that I still hold onto tightly: The ones who love us never really leave us.

My only advice is to take each day as it comes. There's no right and wrong way to feel.

Thinking about you.

Rest In Peace Dad

Hi Matt 

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your precious dad. My thoughts are with you at his heart breaking time. I too lost my daddy in March this year at the age of 61!!!! I was where you are almost 5 months ago and all you the feelings you have said I experienced too and still am.  I miss my daddy more and more with each new day.  I watched him battle cancer for over a year. He is the bravest man I've ever met and I'm so proud to call him my dad.

I'm thinking of you and i understand your pain because I'm still living with it. 


Take care

Natalie xx

Hi Matt

 sorry to read your sad post. I lost my dad when he was 58. Just take each day as it comes don’t try and rush your grief. If you want to cry then cry everyone deals with grief differently but do it one day at a time x
