My Story

Hi I’m Talia, and this is the journey of my grandpa. 14 years ago my grandpa got diagnosed with prostate cancer, little did we know that this is where our very long journey was going to begin. 8 years after that, we found out that new cancer spots appeared in his bowel and bladder. He had a 14 hour surgery to remove the cancer and many radiation treatment sessions and chemo therapy. Shortly after, we found more spots in his lung and he had radiation and 1/4 of his lung removed. This is when we found out that we would lose him. Just as we thought the stress, pain and scares were over with, the cancer in his lung just wouldn’t go away, however, he still continued with the radiation treatment to try and slow down the growth. My grandpa lived with this for the 6 years that the doctors said we wouldn’t have him for. Everyday since then has been a blessing for us and a new memory to add to the book, we thank God for that miracle. Living like this we were warned he would be prone to infections, so for 6 years we were in and out of hospital knowing well enough he would just bounce back. 7 months ago the cancer in his lung had spread to his brain. I prayed everyday that this would just be a dream and go away. Just the thought that my best friend should of left this world 6 years ago I knew that this time he wouldn’t bounce back and this would be the end. For the past 7 months he has had radiation all over his head which has lead to pressure on the brain causing a stroke about 5 weeks ago. From this moment we thought that he would recover well enough and the bleeding in the brain would just stablise but we thought wrong. Since then he has remained in hospital and has been having seizures which has caused more bleeding to the brain. The cancer in his brain has become very aggressive. As heart broken as I am to see him not be able to talk or eat, and he is now asleep I know God is calling him and his long and hard journey has come to an end. I know he can’t physically see what I’m doing but I know for sure he would be proud as I’m trying to raise funds to research more into this deadly disease. So please even if it’s just a dollar, help me make my grandpa proud and potentially find a cure to save someone else’s life.

Thank You
