Have to add my thanks too, just for being there 24/7, in my hour of need you have directed me to the correct links and have "been there" with free phone support, if necessary.
Here's wishing you all and all of the forum members a very Happy and Healthy New Year xxx
Yes big thanks particularly to those of you who are there for the secondary live chat on a Tuesday wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2011
Yes this site has been great for so many of us. Only here now and then these days three years on, but when I have wobbly moments here I am again! Many thanks love Alice.
ALL THE BEST FOR THE NEW YEAR TO ALLXX
When I was first diagnosed and a bit confused, I found being able to use the email a nurse service fantastic. I'd used it after being told I had a fibroid and all my results came back clear. Then an aggressive cancer was found when I went for the routine fibroid op. I was pointed in the right direction about what questions I should be asking the surgeon and breast care nurse as to how things could have happened like this. Being told I was fine and didn't have cancer, then 4 weeks later finding out I did have cancer was dreadful. This site was a great source of help and info for me, and all the leaflets I was give by my BCN from the site were presented in clear and calm terms. I still keep everything in a health file for reference even though I was diagnosed over 4 years ago now.
Me too, I thank you wholeheartedly for all the work you do. For the info you produce, the days you organise, for this site ..... thankyou!
Thank you too to all the women (&men)who post on the forums and come onto the live chat. I have been greatly helped and comfoted by you and have made new friends,
Here's to the best year it can be for each of us.
Love Julie xx
I couldn't agree more with the comments posted. Thank you so much for everything. I have used the Helpline many times since May, and their calm words always managed to help me, so I hope you all have a bright, happy and above all healthy 2011!.
May I add my thanks to all at BCC.
I hope you have a good festive period and a healthy and happy 2011. You do a fantastic job.
Dear BCC and all of you
Can I just add my thanks too? I always said to my lovely breast care nurse that the best thing she ever did was to point me towards this site. It has been a life line since 2007 and I have some wonderful friends from here.
Thank you all so very much for being there.
I couldn't agree more with what everyone has said - thank you so much BCC. I've met so many wonderful people here since diagnosis in October, people who are helping me to get through the trials and tribulations of treatment.
I take my hat off to each and every one of you who works in the background for us because you do an absolutely wonderful job and I for one would be lost without either the forums or all amazing literature and advice provided.
Thank you for all of your lovely comments which will be passed on to the relevant teams at BCC who will be very touched by your gratitude.
Hi deb, I wholeheartedly agree with you. I truly do not know what i would have done without this site and am only sorry I discovered it 2 years after my diagnosis and not straight away.
Thank you BCC, and thank you to each and every person who has posted on it!
Wishing everyone a happy, worry free, healthy New Year,
Thank you to all at bcc.
This year I have used this forum,which has put me in touch with many generous women, phoned the helpline many times, read numerous leaflets and attended the brilliant younger womens forum in Newcastle. All of which has left me feeling informed and supported.
Thank you again.
I raised a glasss of Champagne yesterday to all my new friends and all the BCC staff who have been my constant support since March, couldn't have managed without you all!! All the best for a better year in 2011
I definately couldnt have coped as well with the last 9 months without all the fab ladies who have been a 24 hour help and advice line to me since diagnosis in March You are all AMAZING people and feel like i know you all so well even though most of you i have not met .Heres to definately a better 2011 health and happiness to you all and all youre families xxxxxx Julie
Many many thanks to BCC and all of you - the last year would have been unthinkable without you. Good thoughts and best wishes to all for 2011, be healthy and go well!
Many thanks to all the BCC staff and volunteers as well as all of the great friends I have made on this site.
It has helped me through the past months since my dx in May, the support which we all recieve from eachother is fantastic.
I hope everyone has a much better 2011.
Best Wishes to you all.
A big thankyou from me too. Bcc scooped me up at one of the lowest points in my life. It gave me information when I needed it, it provided a listening ear and sound advice and it gave me a forum to vent my feelings. Finally, it enabled me to make some very good new friends who are now an important part of my life. I was dx in march and relied heavily on this site from that point onwards. Since my treatment ended in October I have visited the site a little less frequently and a little less extensively but it is good to know it is here for me, and for others when it is needed. Thankyou to the charity, it's trustees, it's staff, it's volunteers and it's supporters, both financial and not, for helping me through this year. Thankyou also to my fellow forum users. All the best for a better 2011 than 2010 turned out to be.
all at BCC deserve a big thank you, I too have weaned myself off the site, just pop on to check up every so often, but during 2009 it was my life line, I also made some very good friends and I am so grateful to you all, Happy 2011 xxxx
I would also like to add my thanks. I do not visit this site very often now, I managed to "wean" myself off of it 2 years ago, but at the time of my diagnosis 3 and half years ago it was invaluable to me. From the lovely ladies on the forum, the literature I was sent and the helplines I used I would like to say from the bottom of my heart Thank you. I would not have got through it without you. Best wishes everybody for the New Year.x
May I add my thanks to BCC as a great source of information and for facilitating the forums which have been a lifeline these past few months. May 2011 be so much better than 2010 for all of us.
My thanks, too... the forum is brilliant, due mainly to the way it's run, and the many special ladies who share their good, and not so thoughts here. We all need to off load sometimes, or drive our Families mad!
Happy New Year to each and everyone of us! We deserve it!
Love and hugs,
ChoccieM will PM you later, MANY thanks for youe last one.Hic!
Yes I would like to add my thanks to BCC, and all the ladies on here, this forum as kept me sane these last 5 months,
I would like to add my thanks as well, to BCC and to the lovely ladies who share their ups and downs.
I would like to say a massive big thank you to all you ladies and men who volunteer and work at BCC...
Without this I really don't know how I would have coped in the last year!
You have been my inspiration via your forum to carry on with my treatment when all I felt like doing was giving in!
You work in the background and i just want to say how much I personally appreciate all you have done.
I haven't been the easiest to cope with, lost the plot a few times, but you have always guided me right!
So a merry Christmas to you all.
Love Teresa xxx
