Anyone living overseas whilst undergoing treatment?

Hi there
I live in Belgium and wondering if anyone else is here or somewhere else overseas whilst going through treatment?
I was diagnosed with DCIS shortly after arriving in 2010 and had lumpectomy, rads and Tamox, and now I have a new grade 3 cancer in the opposite breast so starting the whole process all over again.
I cannot fault the treatment I get here because they are fab, but I can’t help feeling a bit alone sometimes when my first language isn’t French. I do think the forums are great, but to find someone in the same boat as me would be a bonus.

Hi Spudgirl

We certainly do have forum members who are living overseas- it looks as though they just haven’t noticed your post yet.

You can also contact our Helpline from abroad. The number is +44 2076 200 077. Opening times are 9-5 weekdays and 10-2 on Saturdays (These are UK times). Do give them a call if you need any information or support.

Very best wishes
