Booked a place on the upcoming event - Younger Women with Secondaries Together event in Bristol?


Feedback has said how helpful it was to talk on the Forums beforehand and this thread is a chance for you to say hello and “meet” others attending the event. I will check in regularly and if you have any questions do let me know and I will do my best to answer them.


Look forward to meeting you next week

Hi Everyone,

My name is Jo and I’m 44 years old.
I’m feeling excited but also nervous about meeting everyone.

I have secondaries in my bones and liver. Diagnosed October 2017 and feeling very anxious the thought of being on chemo forever.

Would love to meet you all and make new friends who are going through similar emotions.

See you all next weekend x

For those who are arriving Thursday what time are you coming? :relaxed:



A big HELLO to all you lovely ladies… I’m Gabriella, 37 with two crazy minions one 8 yr old girl and 4yr old boy.


I was diogniosed back in October, so still very fresh. I’m on palbociclib, letrozole and calcium tablets.

I lost my dad in January through this horrible disease, still all over the place…but getting there.


Will be arriving Thursday night, can’t wait to meet as many of you amazing, strong and courageous woman…after all, we’re all in the same boat, so let’s make the most of it.
