Thanks so much for your lovely note and comprehensive response. I too am very sorry to meet you here however it is comforting knowing I am not alone and neither is my family, in our unfortunate battle with this cruel cancer. My sister’s father-in-law died suddenly in 2019 and I keep reminding myself that in his case, neither he nor his family had any time together at all – it was instant. Every day that I wake up with a father is something to be thankful for. I hope he gets his spring in his step again and mentally hits this hard – I have no doubt it is critically important for cancer battlers to stay optimistic and mentally tough.
I am really glad to hear that your mum is doing well and living with the beast as well as possible. I hope that continues for many, many years ahead.
I have been researching the BRCA2 mutation relationship with BTC and there certainly are links – which may or may not give us other options to explore for different treatments.
Thanks again Hannah, I hope to remain in touch with you, and all the best to your mum and whole family.
