I'm from Swindon too. Diagnosed in Aug just finished chemo now on Herceptin and Tamoxifen. Am up for chat if you want to.
By the way am pleased to find some other women in their 30s with secondaries too if you know what I mean - I don't mean I'm pleased you have them too but pleased I'm not the only one on here!
Good luck with the chemo Amy. What chemo are you going on?
Hi, I'm not too far away in South Wales and wouldn't mind driving to the Bath area as it is isolating being relatively young with BC. I was first diagnosed in 2002 at 32 and was diagnosed with secondaries a year ago but am currently NED (2 consecutive clear scans)after having 9 months of chemo last year. My husband suddenly left less than 3 months after my secondary diagnosis and things just about all finalised with the divorce now so be nice to meet up with others of a similar age if poss. I'm working but only part-time and in term time only so am pretty flexible time-wise - trying to make the most of finally being off chemo for the time-being!
Take care all,
I'm not too far away in Swindon. I'm now 33 and just diagnosed with secondaries (primary diagnosis was Jan 06). About to go through chemo all over again and dreading it.

I am 32 and have secondaries in my spine. I'm on Xeloda and Herceptin at the moment and although I'm fighting side effects would like to be in contact with you.
