Elaine passed away on 3rd January in her sleep she fought the cancer up to the end but the mets finally got her and yes they were in her lungs. They were also in her head which she never accepted and accounts for the weird way she spelled things. She started to go down hill from 25th December and by the 2nd of January could hardly see was not drinking or eating and was all but unconcious she was in pain though she never admitted it because she didn't want to get addicted to morphine after what happened to her mum. She died as she wanted at home and she died in her sleep after the last rights and when I found her she had passed away in her sleep and she looked at peace. She will be buried as she wished in a beautiful woodland cemetery near by soon. I am Gray her husband and yes I miss her terribly and it hasn't got easier yet.
I am a breast cancer survivor and a very lucky person.I have also now found out I have a BRCA2 mutation-not so lucky after all but then perhaps I am!
After being a 2 year survivor I have now been diagnosed with metastic secondary breast cancer and I'm scared stiff.
