Hi, my names Nicky and my mum has brain and lung cancer. I lived in Cyprus and 3 weeks ago my Dad rang to say my mum was in hospital having suffered a suspected stroke. I flew home with my 2 children (1 & 2 years old) and whilst with mum at the hospital she was told she had cancer. It's all a massive shock as I am sure it is to everyone. I have decided not to return to Cyprus as I want to be with my parents (my husband is in the military which is why we were there). My mum is due to start radiotherapy next week then chemo on her lungs if the radiotherapy goes well. We know the cancer is here to stay but hope she responds well to treatment and can be with us pain free for as long as possible. Lots of emotions at the minute, scared, angry, helplessness, the list goes on!
