Helen Fawkes first words in months are.....tumours are shrinking.

Over 50 bouts of experimental chemo cannot be good though I would have thought.


This is easily one of the most depressing blog posts I've read. Seems like these experimental drugs she's been receiving have been very successful at extending her life, but at what cost? At the age of 41, lying around watching the telly all day and still feeling tired, being sick all day throwing up at the mere thought of receiving another dose of the chemo drug... I wonder whether that's a life worth living. Perhaps for the false hope that this time the effects are gonna last and the new wonder drug will make the cancer disappear once and for all (and when the cancer starts growing again, yet another more toxic chemo drug should await her).

To be honest, this makes me think that if I ever get diagnosed with advanced cancer, I should opt for a good dose of sleeping pills instead of this.

You know Sky1 show three episodes of The Simpsons every night, right? Sometimes more?
