He replied: “I’m not going anywhere.”
Kym told him: “I know you’re not – you can’t leave me.”

She explained: “Dad knew something wasn’t right but he felt he couldn’t go to the GP during that time so it got left.
“Dad now has advanced prostate cancer. It has spread to his pelvis, his spine, his ribs and his leg.”
Dave explained: “In March I asked for a blood test because I was in pain a lot with my back but also I was getting pain underneath my prostrate.
“Every time I drove it was like I was sitting on a golf ball. The doctor referred me for a blood test and then they sent me for a bone scan.
“It turned out it was cancer and it had spread to my bones. I have good days and bad days.
“Some of the bad news are really bad and I can think of nothing else but I’ve got cancer. It’s hard.”
Covid lockdowns have led to 50,000 fewer hospital referrals for treatment on the life-threatening condition.
