Hi rugelyboy. I'm so sorry to hear that your MIL has mouth cancer. I have not been through this, but have been through bone cancer which spread to other tissues in my body. I guess I am one of life's survivors in that I won my fight against cancer. Many people do, but we tend not to hear about them as much as those who don't, as in the eyes of the press, positive stories are not as interesting as negative ones. I just wanted to wish your MIL much success with her treatment and you and your wife the courage and strength to help her through this. Cancer treatement is advancing all the time and it is no longer as scary as it used to be. Try to stay positive and hopeful and you will be helping your MIL to stay the same . Best wishes. :o)
Eddie van Halen had mouth cancer a few years ago...he looks wierd now...mouth looks funny.

But another celeb (cant remember who) has had it...and you would never had known..

I hope she comes out ok RB

Hey RB......sorry to hear that, hope everything goes ok x
Hi ruge, I know a lad that has had mouth cancer and had to have all his teeth extracted and part of the jaw bone cut away but he is making a good recovery mate and treatments are improving all the time, wish you all good luck ruge, take care, Ray
Thankfully I've not had much experience with the big C, ruge, but I just wanted to send my love to you and yours.

'Have emailed you. x
Mine was further 'south', but wish her well from me ...

Hello rugeleyboy, just wanted to say im really sorry to hear about your MIL and say we're thinking of you all. Not quite the same but a friends husband was diagnosed with cancer of the salivary gland, had surgery to remove the tumour and gland by a large cut down the back of his ear. He had to have most of his teeth removed and had a course of radiotherapy but is extremely well now. My friend said the nursing staff were fantastic, nothing is too much trouble and you shouldnt be afraid to ask any questions no matter how trivial they may seem.
Wishing you all love and the best of luck.
