What diesase should we die from?
I was just watching some Breakfast Time TV on BC1 (sad I know). They had a very good piece on deaths from cancer and what is being done/what could be to prevent this. It seems that the majority of deaths in the UK and cancer related; it is the No 1 killer. The numbers of people dying from cancer must be reduced - given that 100% of us do die what would the medical profession like us to die from?
I am a retired Consulting IT Specialist. I have been married to Julia for nearly 47 years and we are blessed with four children; David, Andrew, Lawrie and Hélèna. Not forgetting the "other half's"; Gaew married to Andrew, Lawrie's partner Emma and Hélèna's husband Sam.
In addition we have a grandson - Henry Thomas, son of Lawrie and Emma. Henry was four in April 2017 and he now has a sister, Georgia, born on 29 December 2017.
I am ordained as a Permanent Deacon in the RC Church - date of ordination 8 June 2013 so am now in my fifth year of ministry.
