Here is a copy of the email Boocade

I’m writing to confirm the details for our forthcoming Younger Women with Secondaries Together event. The event will be taking place at the Mercure Bristol Holland House Hotel and Spa, Redcliffe Hill, Bristol, BS1 6SQ and here is a map with directions.

Registration is between 10am and 10.30am on Friday 11 May and the event is due to finish around 3.30pm on Saturday 12 May. We have booked you additional accommodation on the Thursday evening prior to the event. When you arrive, please let the reception staffs know you are with the Breast Cancer Care booking.

Breast Cancer Care will provide all accommodation and meals throughout the two days. As we have made a group booking you will not be able to charge anything to your room so please make sure any extras such as telephone, pay television or drinks bought from the bar are paid for at the time of use. There is a spa, indoor pool and gym available so if you want to make use of the facilities, please bring appropriate clothing. Onsite parking is also available at £15 per night. The hotel uses an automated car parking system and it is essential to register your car registration plate with reception on arrival.

If you have any queries on arrival, please contact my colleague Steph, who co-ordinates these events, on 07753724479.

Hi Lovelies,

A few of us who chat in a different group have arranged to meet in the hotel bar area between 19:30 and 8pm so everyone is welcome to join?

I'm Jo, originally diagnosed just 28 in 2012, found out last year it had spread to bones and lymph nodes. I've got no kiddies but i do have a wonderful husband and two lovely fur children (Border Terriers called Fagin and Poppy).

See some of you tomorrow and the rest on Friday xxx

Re: Booked a place on the Younger Women with Secondaries Together event in Bristol ?

Hi ladies, I'm Jo from Cornwall, 41 years old, retired teacher, no kids. I'll be arriving on the Thursday night, but maybe quite late...
I had primary treatment throughout 2014, then my secondary diagnosis was summer 2016 (very widespread in the bones) and then a new, more serious, diagnosis in March this year of numerous tumours in the liver and also leptomeningeal metastases (the brain lining), which means I can't drive anymore, so I will be bringing a companion for the few days, although she's a teacher so has plenty of work to be getting on with!
I'm on weekly Paclitaxol now and had whole brain radiotherapy in March too, as well as steroids. My mobility is really poor at the moment, so I will be using either a walking frame or my mobility scooppppter, so you should hear me coming! I also have such badly swollen feet and legs from the steroids that nothing fits, so I have been having to wear slippers out of the house - apologies in advance for that!

My name is Jo and I'm 44 years old.
I'm feeling excited but also nervous about meeting everyone.

I have secondaries in my bones and liver. Diagnosed October 2017 and feeling very anxious the thought of being on chemo forever.

Would love to meet you all and make new friends who are going through similar emotions.

See you all next weekend x
