What a good idea, sadly I won’t be able to make that date. I have also found very helpful and thought anyone else unable to attend on 24 April may also find it useful. They also have a 24 hour helpline which is fantastic.


I’m new to this site and I am going to go being BRCA1, living in Ireland I find the forums are not as good as in London especially for young people so am travelling over for this.

Anyone else going?

Purdie x

hi purdie i will see you there as im going too… im coming from scotland so we can both be the celtic contingent.


Will you be wearing your pink hat?

actually I’m an indian from East London but I can do a pretty good Irish accent : )

LOL dont think ill be wearing the pink hat or the pink wig… ill change my pic though so you know what i really look like and maybe ill wear a red carnation LOL.

looking forward to meeting you there.

Ah lulu,

That’s a lovely photo! I look forward to meeting you.

I was using the guidelines for using a different name as new to doing this website stuff and now I think I just feel more comfortable using my own!

See you there. Maybe I’ll have that red carnation too ha! I went to one of these forums at the Royal Marsden many years ago and found it quite daunting but feel more confident now - if that makes sense.

Just to say that I’m travelling from Wales to go to this forum. I’m going to have to stay up the night before - Is anyone else?
