A lovely, wonderful lady named Cathy I used to work with in Sydney is about to pass away, from Breast Cancer, she's not yet 50 years young. This is one of those situations where it just doesn't seem fair, she simply doesn't deserve this (I mean who does ?). Never have I seen anyone smile and laugh as much as Cathy does, she always lit up the room. She was diagnosed with Breast Cancer about a year or so ago, had some treatment, but they decided it was far better for her to have a double mastectomy, which she did. This seemed to go well, she and her specialist were confident that the operation was a success and she had excellent chances of a full recovery. This obviously wasn't the case. When she got the further news that the Cancer was still in her system and active, she took counsel, but decided not to proceed with further treatment. This decision I simply don't understand, but I respect that it was her decision, and she made it from an informed point of view. She is now in Camden Private Hospital Pallitive Care Unit, she is medicated but I am told she's comfortable. Her family and loved ones are around her. This is a sad time for all concerned. I will never forget all the wonderful, happy, fun times we had, the times we laughed and partied and enjoyed life to it's full Cathy, you are a wonderful person, your spirit and life will live on in the lives of all you touched. God Bless.
