    DD, Aged 17

    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...

    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...

Rymrimi - 12 years old and update at age 13

My dad went to a CT scan today and we will hopefully get the results of if it's is spreading.

My 39 year old dad has been recently diagnosed with bowel cancer.

I'm a freaking out!! My dad is everything to me if I lose him I would kill myself. My mum who has sirtica has always been getting extremely worried.

We do not know what to do. My 2 younger siblings do not know about this. I need all the advice I can get. My dad went to a CT scan today and we will hopefully get the results of if it's is spreading. I will say this again I need all the advice I can get. Thanks.

Update from Rymrimi January 2018

ITS BEEN A YEAR ! I am now 13!!
Hey guys, long time no see, it's been a year since i submitted my first story here. It's been one year since my dads operation and boy a lot had gone on including my dad had two surgeries again because he had hernia (when the stomach falls). I got reminded of the website as currently my dad is in hospital again and has been for the pass month as he had surgery because something had gone wrong for the hernia surgery. It's kinda weird really because when i tell my friends about it , i didn't think i'd ever really have to talk about cancer in my entire life yet here i am. I'm going to be updating more later
