I blogged about the event: http://drbexl.co.uk/2017/11/26/life-weekend-away-bccare-youngerwomentogether/
I live about 10 minutes away from Thirsk, in the middle of nowhere!! It's a lovely part of the world to live 🙂
Traceylois - sorry to pop in here, but noticed you have put your phone number on your post. Probably not a good idea as this is a public forum and anyone can see the posts, even non-members, and you could get some dodgy calls. (We are forever alerting the moderators to Spam here too, so BCC advises folk not to put their emial address on the forum as well.) You might like to edit your post to delete your number, and private message your number to people. Hope you have a lovely time at your event. xx
i am 🙂 i booked Ask Italian for 6.30 but i think that might be a little too early i can always change it 🙂 maybe 7 or 7.30 instead? this is my number removed phone number for safety it would be great to meet someone else who has been through all this i feel only we can really understand what we have been through, Tracey x
Hi Laura, ill arrive at 3,30 and im thinking of going to ask italian for tea do ou fancy it? there are 2 other girls also arriving the day before so we could all go 🙂 x
Yeah, though I'm still recovering from last night - much wine/cheese - was something to look forward to after the 'you're having chemo' meeting! Looking forward to this weekend 🙂
Ha, I looked at the gym and thought, nah! Didn't look like it had anything particularly exciting in it!
Looking forward to meeting everyone, recognise some names from FB group. I only live in Reddish, so a short bus hop in (though the 'early' morning start is going to be fun). Diagnosed end of August at 42, had surgery 21st Sept at Stepping Hill. Joined Optima trial, just confirmed yesterday that chemo starts 1st Dec at the Christie (3 x EC, weekly paxatol). Live on my own at home, but lots of friends promising to come and do what's needed (and last year I hired a cleaner, def holding onto her!).
Lecturer at Man Met Uni, managing to work at home on research at the moment (+ managed to do radio/TV for my book launch, and a couple of conference papers!) - let's see what happens over chemo. Written a few blog-posts on the topic: http://drbexl.co.uk/category/cancer/
I'm Alex and just about fitting into the 'younger group' at 43. I have 2 children, my son is 14 next week and my daughter is 10. I was diagnosed in July 2017 and just finished radio. Now on tamoxifen and next is the ovary removal! oh the joys!
I'm travelling up on the Thursday evening with some other girls that I've met along the way so we are looking forward to a couple of child free relaxing nights and meeting everyone else - many have mentioned they are going from the facebook YBCN page so it will be lovely to meet you all!
Reassuring to see how many are going to be in the bar and not the gym!!! Looking forward to seeing you all there.
I'm Ali and at 45 just scraped in as "younger"! lol! Im travelling from Bolton so not too bad. I have 2 grown up daughters 22 and 25 who have kept me going through what has been a mad few months! I had my surgery August 25th and finished radiotherapy a fortnight ago. Looking forward to meeting you all and having a laugh! 🙂
Hi, I'm getting the train from Thirsk over the Pennines. I'm very shyand treatment has knocked my confidence even more. I'll try my best to be chatty! I am looking forward to meeting some people a similar age to me. I've recently been on a Health and Wellbeing course and I was the youngest by 18 years. They were lovely ladies but there's issues I have that they don't and visa versa. See you all there!
