Dear oldersister

We read much about the increasing numbers of cancers that are preventable and curable these days but in some ways it makes it more difficult to bear when it affects someone you are close to.

Some decades ago I was working on a cure for leukaemia when my much loved cat Dusty caught feline leukaemia. For all my supposed skills I did not have the luxury of time or facilities and she slipped away much too young, illustrating that I was nowhere near as clever as I though I was.

We now have a cure and a vaccination for the feline version and are close on the human variety, but I still remember how helpless and hopeless I felt when faced with cancer.

I sincerely offer my condolences to you and pray that you will be reunited when the time comes in the same way as I will with Dusty and all my beloved friends and pets from over the years.

Kind regards Peter

Thanks Peter. Some cancers are the silent killer. We can go for check ups and stay on top of our health care and sometimes cancer goes undetected, especially pancreatic cancer. I do hope some day they find a cure.
