Cancer Stories: Sheelaugh's Dad

This is an email I received from Sheelaugh, who last her dad in September. She gave me permission to post this and share her dad's story with you.

~oOo~

Thank you so much for your wonderful blog. I have just learned of it today.

My father passed away on Sept. 26, 2006 (aged 67) after a 2 year battle with Lung cancer. While he was a smoker, he was also a millwright and shipwright. As a youth, he worked in coal mines, factories with tire black, and a number of other heavy industry related positions long before face masks and safety equipment were the norm. While it is most likely that his smoking caused his cancer, the doctors could never rule out his past work history as a strong contributing factor.

Sheelagh.
