Re: EBBies.... Edinburgh, Lothians, Central and East of Scotland


Hello EBBies members,
My name is Claire Thomson and I’ve recently joined the team here at Breast Cancer Care, Scotland. I was hoping to make contact with someone from EBBies to find out more about the group, how it runs and how often it meets. In my role I’ll be involved in running our Moving Forward services in Edinburgh, Livingston and Fife, so it would be great to be able to let ladies know about EBBies and also to be able to pass on information about upcoming events that might be of interest to EBBies members. If you coordinate the group or are involved it’d be great to hear from you. My number is 0141 353 8353 and email address is claire.thomson@breastcancercare.org.uk Thanks and look forward to speaking soon, Claire

Hello dotgirl

 

Welcome to the forums, this must be a very difficult time for you. 

I’m so pleased you have phoned the helpline for support and I’m sure other users will be along to support you soon.

 

Best wishes

Phoned the helpline and they suggested getting in touch with Ebbies. Went to the Carols by Candlelight last year which was lovely, well done. In mental black hole just now being post treatment from second primary. Thought it would help to talk with someone.

Re: EBBies.... Edinburgh, Lothians, Central and East of Scotland

Hi

 

I wrote way back in October and then couldnt remember how to access the forum!!  Im wondering if you still meet up and if so when your next lunch is.  

 

Since last writing Ive had my mx and reconstruction, followed just two weeks ago  by a nipple reconstruction and  uplift and reduction on my 'good' breast.   Must admit I expected to feel elated but the reality is a feel rather 'flat'.  So it would be good to share with others.

 

Hope youre well and to hear from you soon.

Hi there Karen. We most definitely are.

our next lunch is next Saturday.... 13/4/13 and we are planning to go to hamiltons in Stockbridge at 1.30. Our lunches sometimes last till teatime though, but you don't need stay all day.

We have a Facebook group too which I can add you to as well.... My fb details are in my profile I think.

look forward to seeing you sometime as we meet up about once a month so if this is a bit short notice there will be plenty more xxx

Hi
Ive just read about Edinburgh Breast Buddies and wondered if you were still meeting and accepting new 'members'. Ive just been diagnosed with a recurrence of BC and will be having a mastectomy and reconsruction. This has come out of the blue - just after I took early retirement (fab) to do all the things I didnt have time to do - and then this - crap! Hope to hear from you soon. Carole
