    Default bah, uncle just been diagnosed with cancer

    It's a funny one because even though he lives in London I haven't seen him in about ten years. My mam's family is a bit messed up, it's not that they fight but they don't talk much and as my mam just said, it's funny how you think you don't care about someone until something like this happens.

    I don't know the details, how long he has or anything, but he drank and smoked heavily, never got any exercise because of his sciatica so I suppose it was on the cards. Then again, my aunt (his sister) died in her 50s from cancer after never smoking, drinking, and spending a lot of her life as a nun. Just goes to show how life fucks you over so make the most of it while you can.

    As usual with these things, I'm more upset for her than anything. I hope it brings her family together though, her other brother also lives in uncle and has had his life ruined by a hit & run (lost his leg, hooked on morphine...) and fell out with my family around 10 year ago so I haven't heard from him either.

    Fuck cancer indeed. Both my mam's parents have died of it, as has her sister and now her brother has got it. I'm a lot more like my mam than my dad so I wouldn't be surprised if I die of it too. Fuck it.

    Another page set up by a group calling themselves the "Killowen Young Republicans" promises to "protect the Republican communities from the PSNI, hoods and most of all loyalists." The group's photo album contains numerous images of youths in balaclavas posing with a range of republican flags as well as a handguns and automatic weapons.

    I think it's of the colon, but as is the nature of cancer, it spreads.
