I’m glad this may have given you encouragement.
I was so fortunate in my own friends and family who surrounded me with so much love and support. My breast care nurses were also a tremendous help.
I am now two years on and I feel that I have been truly blessed. I walk every day. Go weekly to Tai Chi and have just joined a singing for fun group. Staying positive and making the most of every day is a big part of beating the big C.
keep in touch and let me know how your friend is getting on. Xxx
When I had my lymph nodes removed my breast care nurse gave me a small shoulder bag to support the bag attached to the drainage tube. This allowed me to move around freely and I was able to hook it on to my nightstand at night to prevent it pulling in the night. The bags are supplied by our local W.I.
While in for Radiotherapy I came across this engraving on a sun dial - “Turn to face the sun and the dark clouds will fall behind you !” I have tried to make this my mantra in dealing with my treatment. Perhaps you can pass this on along with my prayers for your friend.
