Cancer is indeed a "bastard illness" and I lost a good friend in similar circumstances a couple of years ago.
I would just like to ask members to consider making a donation to one of the many cancer related charities.
Ditto to what everyone has said.
May your last few days be as lucid & painless as possible under the circumstances.
Cancer is a bastard illness, & has only recently touched Dulwich Hamlet, with one of our loyal fans having a routine check at the age of 60. He had an operation which was supposed to be 'routine' which would cut out the 'small abnormality' they found, but on cutting him open they found he was riddled with cancer, & he would have died a painful death if he had not gone to the doctors. Sadly they could do nothing for him. He slipped into unconsciousness, & passed away under heavy sedation, hopefully not feeling any pain.
What I'm rather clumsily trying to say, as I'm struggling for words, is that somehow, through the Hamlet losing our friend Robert, I sort of feel closer to you, even though I never met you. I hope it's a little comfort for you to know that we are all thinking of you.
You are a very special man who has enriched my life so much through this forum. I thank you for that from the bottom of my heart.
