Younger Women Together in Liverpool

                                                 Younger Women Together in Liverpool

                                                                 25-26 January 2019


Booked a place on the Younger Women’s Forum in Liverpool but worried about going alone? 


Every year we receive queries from women, including concerns about coming along to the Forum on their own. Feedback from previous forums has said how helpful it was to talk on the Forums before the event.
This thread is a chance for you to say hello and “meet” others attending the Forum. 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

Hey I’m emma I’m 34 and from Wigan. I have two little girls aged 4 and 2. I’m lucky because I know 2 people coming next weekend! But we’re a friendly bunch and looking forward to meeting others going thru this xx

Hi all
I’m Cara and I’m 40. I have 2 boys and I live in Liverpool. I was diagnosed just before Christmas and have already had one session of chemotherapy. I am so glad I found out about this group, as I have a lovely family and friends that are great and can sympathise but can’t really relate to me. So I’m really looking forward to meeting women who are going through similar. Although I wish none of us were!

Hi Everyone, I’m Alison. I’m 40 and live in Blackburn with my partner and two children 9 and 3. Looking forward to meeting you all xx

Im Natalie, Im 33 and a mother of 2 boys (12 and 5) and was diagnosed with breast cancer last Feb. Im still not sure if I want to come as I feel like I have been doing ok lately and dont want this to set me back (as in bringing back all the memories). I am not turning a blind eye to what happened but I feel like I am nearly living a normal life again. Does anyone else feel in a similar position?

Hi Natalie… tahts exactly how i feel! I was diagnosed last March and very anxious about it all next weekend… I had stage 1 off, six rounds of chemo then radio and now have zoladex and exemestane! Am back at work and like you feel it might make me worse again, But Do want to attend x

Hi Aimee, Natalie, I’m really thinking of this as a nice relaxing escape from the kids and a chance to meet some other people with similar experiences. I don’t think it will be too traumatic ( at least I hope not!) but if you don’t feel the workshops etc would be of benefit then I’m sure you won’t be forced to attend. Just see how you feel on the day?

Ah great I dont know anyone else who is on zoladex would be great to have a chat? It thats ok?Yes my friends have said the same see how it goes? My anxiety comes and goes anything I see / hear aboit it triggers it off… but i hope it will be a positive experience for us and look foward to meeting girls my own age…I was actually 35 yesturday and I’ve put x

Hi Alison . Yes you are right, I’m sure it will be amazing just apprehensive now as it gets nearer the time x

Natalie haa!!thats a good idea ill blame it too!! We will have to find eachother when we are there!deffo the same as you, you can’t escape it things is its always been there jist we take more notice now I think… thank you for the birthday wishes x

Hi, I’m Lisa I’m 38 from Cheshire. I am looking forward to meeting younger women as all throughout my treatment I have been the youngest on the wards. I was diagnosed with stage 3b last year, I had 10 rounds of chemo, lumpectomy, rads and have just finished herceptin. I am quite nervous about attending but hope I can help others going through the same. I’m excited about not being woken up by kiddies at 6am ?
