I’ve just turned sixty life has been turned upside down in the last five years. My memory has been hit for at least last fifteen years. Apparently it started about five years got bad headaches and being sick at work etc. Eventually doctors got me in to see consultant, followed by scans, chemotherapy and operation. Eventually the chemo not working and after operating to take a sample the consultant came to see and family to give be news that it was rare cancers and given 3 months to live. I I remember about hospital was those words, so wife fought to get me home. Now two years later still here getting stronger, walking still like I have two many to drink. 
This year my wife said she was leaving me coming out with some rubbish about money, but I believe because of memory and living why past my three months. She found someone to take care of her needs, which I not been able to do as I have permanent catheter. Got three lovely kids, stuck cannot drive or walk far. Wife will not talk because I took our motoabilty car back. As she was swanning around in a brand new car but left me whose allowance was paying for it. Plus new boyfriend doesn’t want her talking to be, he must be scared of me cancer and catheter. 
That’s a short story of my life with cancer diagnosis, my son has pictures of me in hospital, but perhaps no memory helps me.
