    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE your website!! It’s so informative without being OVERWHELMED (more!) with fancy, difficult medical lingo!
    I’m curious tho…why cant I access “E”, “I”, “M” and “Y”. Ive read everything else and I’ve just got to finish it all!!!
    Thank you for replying!

      Thanks Christine! I have written most of it – just need to finish and set it live – there just don’t seem to be enough hours in the day! But knowing people are reading has spurred me on. Thanks. And hope you are doing OK? X

    Well done for doing this ! I went through all the same aged 36 in 2005 …3 months after my daughter was born…and here we are ! Eventually you begin to have days and then a few in a row when you forget you ever had cancer…If you want any comments or help let me know I am also a Doctor !

    Hi I start my 1st chemo on 16th may I’m trying cold capping. It’s been like being hit by a sledgehammer I was skipping through life new job celebrating my sons 18th my daughter is 13 end of June then SLAP BANG WALLOP !! I have cried, sobbed uncontrollably, screamed, shouted but to no avail …. Get a grip Lynn this is happening it totally takes over your life & any plans you had are put in a box. I am to get 6 X FEC-T then lumpectomy then radiotherapy plus herceptin injections for a year as I have HER2 (never do anything by halves me) I am trying to stay positive & strong but it’s not always easy that thing called C impacts every person around you it’s totally & utterly SHIT & I can quite honestly say CANCER I HATE YOU & I have never hated anything or anyone in my life …… 1st time for everything 😄 but I will see it off the best I can. Thank you for the a-z whist not the cheeriest it’s certainly informative which is what’s important ❤️ xx
