Re: Stand Up To Cancer.

Me too smc78, I just caught the last ten minutes of 'sing' the other night and was sobbing away when my partner came home from a sneaky pint.... quick mop up with tissues and turned the TV over as 'you dont want to watch that depressing stuff' - YES I DO! ...He thinks if I dont watch stuff like that I will 'forget' that I have just had (and am still recovering from) a potentially fatal disease and will bounce back to the person I was 2 years ago.... it aint gonna happen....
MUST watch and support, to help us and anyone else at risk xxx

Re: Stand Up To Cancer.

I watched that programme and cried all through it too. My 11 year old son amazed me half way through when a lady talked about how she was worried she might die after being diagnosed. He piped up with 'why would you think like that?' I told him i felt exactly like her when i got diagnosed and thats why i had cried at the hospital (he was with me when i was diagnosed) and he just said 'you have to think positive not negative'. I was gobsmacked! I'm looking forward to tomorrow nights show but as i know its going to be emotional i've deliberately planned to watch it home alone so i can blub away to my hearts content.

Re: Stand Up To Cancer.

Did anyone watch "sing for your life" on C4. I don't know what to make of it, i cried all the way through the programme. Too close to home. I wonder how anyone not affected with cancer reacted to it.

Re: Stand Up To Cancer.

Hi Cornish girl - I've just sussed this week why new posts don't appear to appear in latest posts. Latest posts in our marvellous new website has 2 tabs, one for replies and one for new posts - so unless someone checks new posts tab or the original author bumps their own thread, it doesn't get much in the way of viewing!!

Another 'new design feature'!! And I do not see the point cos they don't leave new posts when they've been replied to so even more duplication than we already knew existed!
