Fought cancer, but a lung infection took him
by Louise Smith
My dad smoked from an early age and unsurprisingly was diagnosed with cancer in his lungs when aged 67. What made it harder was he was also diagnosed with another primary cancer in his kidney. After having parts removed, major surgery, and chemo my dad was looking good. Would never be free of it but was doing ok. However he was prone to lung infections and the last one seemed to take it's toll. However I wasn't ready for him to go, and feel so angry that he was taken from me. I tried to be strong, but I can't cope with his loss. It's consuming my every waking hour when I am not throwing myself into anything else. I don't know how to move forward, so angry that my dad was taken.
