    When people would talk they didn't know what to say which was understandable.  more...


    Mimi - 15 years old

    I lost myself doing stupid things, angry and sad and depressed at everything. I ended up failing my classes, not caring about school, and getting into fights.  more...


    Chelsea - 14 years old

    I stuck my head round the door in the room mum was in, and she looked really ill. I couldn't understand what was happening - one minute my mum was fine and the next she was ill.  more...


    Clair - aged 14

    Something I wish is I could just have one more day with my dad! - to tell him how much I love him and how sorry I am for all the bad things I have said and done to him!  more...

    This time the doctors are unable to operate. He has already had 6 sessions of chemo and is having another 6 sessions. I cannot help feeling I may lose him.  more...


    Rirrif - 15 years old

    I have been staying with my dad because my mom doesn't want me around when she is sick, which is all the time. My dad works at night so I spend a lot of time alone since I'm not with my mom. I'm afraid she is going to die and I'll blame myself for not being there more. more...


    HT - 13 years old

    She has been so strong about this and is keen to put it all behind her.  more...

I don't know what is wrong with him because nobody talks to me about it.

My dad was diagnosed with cancer on Christmas Eve and he still managed to go out that night and have some fun. He was told he had 6 - 9 months to live. He told me a couple of weeks later and afterwards I got angry with him and I just fell to pieces. He started his chemotherapy in January and in February he got admitted into hospital and then the doctors said that the chemotherapy wasn't working. My dad has been on these tablets called magic bullet's that made an improvement. He also had radiotherapy, which has made him really poorly and I don't know what is wrong with him because nobody talks to me about it. I'm so confused about what to think because nobody has told me if he's going to get better. I love my dad so much. I hope someone will tell me what is going on!
