Hi guys, 

I’ve just popped on to say my darling dad passed away this morning at 5.18am… this had nothing to do with his prostate cancer but was due to another bleed from his kidney which was the issue that first put him in the hospital almost 8 weeks ago, he began bleeding again on Saturday & was put on the end of life pathway on Wednesday, his passing thankfully was quick & as painless as possible. 

He had responded incredibly well to the first round of the hormone therapy for his prostate & his specialist nurse said his PSA had plummeted & his mets markers had all but halved. 

I'd like to wish you all well on your individual journeys & I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the kindness & support you’ve shown me over these last few weeks.
