I post on a forum for Kidney Cancer patients. We are a small, close little family with maybe 20 or so of us, mainly patients but a few wives of patients as well. We gain support from each other, encourage each other and it generally really helps to feel you are not alone.
One patient, a chap about the same age as me, was diagnosed with his cancer at the same time, and with the same staging. We both developed secondaries in September. I had surgery and went on to have IL2, he went on to to a Sutent trial.
I have just heard, from his wife who writes on the forum, that he is now in a Hospice and terminal in the short term.
I am gutted - absolutely gutted. We have been fighting this awful insidious disease along side each other.
God bless you Kevin, and your wonderful wife Kitty......
