  1. So sorry for your loss. As many others have said he was an inspiration with his positivity and courage even through the most difficult of times. He was a great source of knowledge and encouragement for others and will be sadly missed in the psc group.
    Thinking of you and the rest of his friends and family.

    Thank you for the blog we never really wanted to happen. As I said on our site your dad was special, his humour fantastic despite the fight going on inside. I shall miss his comments which were always so helpful to our psc family. Think I shall light a firework in my back garden to say goodbye – has to be a rocket I think. !

    Love to you both

  5. Dear Laura and Sam

    I am very sorry to hear of your father’s death. His “My PSC Blog” was so positive. I expected the worst when I suddenly realised I had not received his blog for a few weeks.

    It is hard to believe that nearly a year has passed since my wife, Sue, died from cholangio-carcinoma (bile duct cancer), and that is the reason why I started reading your father’s blog.

    In my wife’s case she had been diagnosed with Cancer of Unknown Primary (CUP) for over two and a half years before a junior doctor detected jaundice around an eye. An ultra sound scan showed stones blocking the bile ducts, and the subsequent MRI scan con-firmed cholangiocarcinoma. Three weeks later Sue died on December 1st, 2015.

    Before her death my son, Ian, and I discovered AMMF – the only UK cholangiocarcinoma charity. I am now in the process of setting up another charity to enable medical students to study and research bile duct cancer in different centres around the world. This will be administered by Imperial College, London.

    Once again accept my family’s condolences. The vicar who took my wife’s cremation is holding a Bereavement Service on Sunday, November 6th, when we light a candle. I will be thinking of your father.


  6. Your father was positive to the end. I enjoyed reading his daily blog. He has helped me see that even with these horrid diseases, you can still smile and keep going.
    He seemed to love life as much as he loved exclamation marks !!!!!!
