Cancer sucks. No matter what.

My Father-In-Law is having an operation later this morning.  He has cancer but I believe that they will remove it all this morning.

In honour of cancer and bandana day I bought bandana’s from Pick ‘n Pay.  He doesn’t have Leukemia (thankfully) but it’s still cancer.  I used the bandana’s to explain cancer to the boys.  It has now touched our lives twice and hopefully it will be the last.

Thinking of you Oupa Jan!

    Cancer is a horrible thing. Thinking of your family today and for a successful operation for your father-in-law.

  3. Ugh. Cancer. My dad is currently in remission. I was at a clients taking pictures of her and her baby today, and she told me the most horrific story of how her father died in her arms, from cancer. SO sad.

    Glad to hear the operation was a success!!! Trust that it will be the last time your lives are touched by cancer.

    Good luck and best wishes to your father in law.

    We have two close family members battling cancer right now. Sucks big time.

  7. OMW I missed bandana day! I hardly ever get to a Pick ‘n Pay anymore. They should promote it more…

  9. Ugh. If he has chemo tell him to eat a banana before each treatment.
    Let us know how he does.
    Just because a person has cancer does not mean it is a death sentence.

    • Absolutely agree with you 🙂 We are very positive

      • Have to be Mel, which is why I keep my mouth shut and don’t listen to what my body tells me. I choose life.
