Climbing Kilimanjaro

Hello. I didn’t know what to call myself and opted for Kilimanjaro because it’s a huge mountain to climb but it is achievable. 

I had a WLE in February, followed by nodes clearance in March. Today I received a letter from the Leicester Royal Infirmary concerning attending a group chemotherapy talk on Monday 11th May. I’m taking everything one day at a time. 

I live in the Rutland area so if there is anyone out there who lives close by it would be lovely to meet up for a coffee and a chat.

John Lennon once said,“Life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans.” I guess we all feel that way.

Hi kilimanjaro, I am Egret and I follow the April thread because I started my 6 x FEC 75 in April. Welcome! There is a thread for May you might wish to follow, messages from women sharing their experience as they progress through chemo at the same time than you! The kilimanjaro is in my “to do” list (not the climbing though!). Best wishes, Egret x
