"My Husbands cancer care and treatment"

About: Ninewells Hospital / Medical Oncology

(as a carer),

My husband was diagnosed with Prostate cancer in 2005 and Lung Cancer in 2006 the lung cancer spreading to his Brain in 2012 he sadly died on in July this year.

The diagnosis was speedy the treatment excellent. My Husbands consultant Dr Windsor was so on the ball spotting the as she put it the wee spot on the Lung when doing Ct scan to set up for Radiotherapy for the prostate.

The Lung then became the priority my husbands consultant Dr Casasola was an extraordinary man so approachable my Husband had complete faith in him and am sure we had so many more years together because of him.

Sadly the cancer spread to his brain 2012 but the same swift treatment and support was received from this wonderful man always available and human in every way

So thank you to Dr Casasola Dr Windsor and our wonderful Doctor and district nurses
