    North West news was a bit emotional tonight. Annabel almost lost it at one point. :sad:

    My wife's a senior nurse working with very sick children and has to deal with their parents when their kids die so she's not in the slightest bit soft, especially where death's concerned as she's seen so much of it but when Annabel did lose it, my wife went full waterworks!

    Such awful sad news. I’ve spent many a Lake District holiday, waking up and watching her morning weather forecasts, in the hope that the notorious Cumbria weather would be nice to us.

    She seemed such a lovely person

    Average time from diagnosis is 5 months with pancreatic cancer. It's probably the worst type, very poor prognosis.

    Some C is crazy fast. My BIL was over in UK in the July, just felt tired (lived in HK). Collapsed back in HK in late Sept, dead within 6 weeks. 15 years ago. He was a Dan grade karate, played footie every week... Shoot happens....

    I found I had bladder cancer approx 5 years ago. Had 3 ops and all the horrible treatment. I seem to be clear at the moment.
    Just read about some guy that was diagnosed with bladder cancer and died within a few months.
    I am fortunate but life really can be sh*te to some people.
