This thread is a chance for you to say hello and “meet” others attending the Younger Women Together. I will check in regularly and if you have any questions do let me know and I will do my best to answer them.

Hi I'm roseann, Im 36 with a 2½ year old boy, Ethan. My primary diagnosis was triple negative primary breast cancer, and I'm just over a year post treatment, after receiving chemo, mastectomy, and radiotherapy. Back at work now, and taking back control, trying to get fit. Im looking forward to meeting all you lovely ladies at the forum, and hope we can all support each other through this horrible disease xxxx
I'm booked and attending the course. I'm a year post treatment but still going through reconstruction. Outwardly I'm getting on with things great but my biggest area holding me back is the intamacy and socalising with friends again.
I'm releived to be meeting ladies who have gone through treatment and have some understanding of all the issues we are facing. Its not easy speaking to friends and family about this stuff.
Looking forward to meeting you all.
