Sorry to say that I haven’t used the site for a long time but have just been diagnosed with secondarys in the spine and pelvis.Would be interested in going to Birmingham, I live near Lutterworth, so nearish to Rugby.
I would be grateful for any advise on treatment etc, so i can talk to the Oncologist about things.

I might make it tto, but got to fit it round radio theray so will see if that is possible. I live in Derby so only 30 mins by train.

Interested in going. I live near Lutterworth too. So (Pink Lady and Trash - and anyone else) if you decide to go we can go together if you wish.

Hi Sadie, Trash, Kelly and Ramsfan,

Great to have some names to look out for! Are we all travelling by train? Maybe we could try and arrange a meeting point at Birmingham New Street and share a taxi to the Novotel? Looking forward to meeting you all :slight_smile:


Just found out that my radio therapy starts on that day! So will find out what time and then see if I can make it. Will know the time next week. Have asked for early appointments so will hope I can get.

Hi Ladies - Just BUMPING up this thread. I hope you are all well and still planning to go on Thursday. I am hoping to - just need to pick up a bit more from last weeks chemo first!

I would love to have gone, I am in Coventry but I am in Norfolk this week. Can you let me know about any useful tips for managing fatigue?

My first radiotherapy appoinment is in the middle of the day so I won’t make it :frowning:

Can someone ask if they will make the presentations available on the web site please???

Hello Ramsfan55,

I’m sorry but we are unable to put individual presentations by speakers at our events on our web-site, but if you are unable to attend on the 6th October I wanted to let you know that we run a Living with Secondary Breast Cancer Programme in Birmingham which is an on-going programme of monthly meet-ups and information sessions with guest speakers on subjects like diet, benefits, pain managment and fatigue, facilitated by a trained therapist. You can come along regularly or just to the sessions that interest you.

If you would like more information on the programme in Birmingham and how to register then please contact us on 0845 077 1893 or email <script type=“text/javascript”>eval(unescape(‘%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%73%65%63%6f%6e%64%61%72%79%73%65%72%76%69%63%65%73%40%62%72%65%61%73%74%63%61%6e%63%65%72%63%61%72%65%2e%6f%72%67%2e%75%6b%22%3e%73%65%63%6f%6e%64%61%72%79%73%65%72%76%69%63%65%73%40%62%72%65%61%73%74%63%61%6e%63%65%72%63%61%72%65%2e%6f%72%67%2e%75%6b%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b’))</script>
