Hi from east London

I just wanted to say hi and introduce myself.
I’m 43 and have been diagnosed with IDC stage 1 just a week ago.
I am going to have a lumpectomy and radiotherapy.
I’m looking forward to getting to know all of you amazingly strong and brave ladies and as well as gaining support, I hope I can also offer support as I go along this journey.
Love and hugs to you all Judy xx

Dear Joodymoody,

Welcome to the BCC forum.  I hope you will find lots of help and support on here from other members.  You might find some helpful information in the “Going through treatment” section.  There are threads on surgery and radiotherapy on there.  You might also find our publications helpful.

Hi SJB
Thankyou for the lovely welcome. I’m sorry to hear what you are going through.
There really are some incredibly inspirational ladies on this site and although my journey has just started, I don’t feel alone anymore
