I’ve written before about how, as part of my dual tracking cancer strategy, I’ve been recording a series of videos for my kids. I’ve also been writing something I’ve called ‘A long letter from Dad’. Like the videos, the writing is only meant for them, but I just finished one section that I would like to share to get some feedback / other ideas on.

Apparently planning your own palliative care in advance is highly unusual. This has been my project for the last few weeks. I don´t think it is fatalistic, I think it is just pragmatic and I´ve found some degree of comfort from it.

I seem to be moving beyond ‘standard’ treatment. My medical team has no guidance on whether I should do another round of chemotherapy following my recent surgery. Really struggling with how to make this decision.
