AECC (Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer) tell us that half the population will have some form of cancer during their lifetime. That was certainly born out by the tales we heard today. So many who have or had one form or another of cancer, it was frightening. The only encouraging fact is that detection and survival rates are improving year on year.
We sincerely hope that those who are currently undergoing treatment or who are now being monitored succeed in their fight against the big C.
Sadly, there are a few of our neighbours who lost their battles with cancer and are no longer with us including the husband of one of the organisers who passed away eighteen months after retiring to his dream life in Spain. Joan is a very brave lady who works hard to help others and gives tireless support to AECC.
