I heard today that someone I know is at the end of her life. I am bewildered. She was a vibrant cancer survivor. 6 years post treatment. Suddenly she is having treatment for secondary cancer and now … Selfishly it has made me think about my own cancer recovery. If she had secondary cancer that hasn’t responded to treatment maybe I will too as my primary breast cancer was more advanced that hers. I feel guilty and mean even thinking this as her family are with her and trying to make her last days comfortable.

Hi littlemrs, Sorry to hear about your friend. I think it is perfectly normal for this news to remind you of your own mortality.  You might get secondaries or you might not. You might drop dead from something else. For now you’re ok, so try to adjust yout thoughts and count your blessings. x
