Glad the appointment went well today Sunflower. I have mine on the 23 June. Already have my first Mammogram appointment booked for next March. Been whittling about the June appointment so glad to hear its just a quick check up x
Hi ladies hope everyone is having a good weekend and enjoying the sunshine.
Proud mum moment today. My daughter took part in the Race for Life in Nottingham this morning. She is someone who doesn't even walk anywhere never mind run! She did it though because of what we as a family have gone through this year and also her friend at work who is a currently being treated for a different cancer. She has raised about £370 x
I really admire all of you who are coping with going out to work. I completed my treatment a couple of months ago. I am a pensioner. Prior to the cancer diagnosis I was so weary and exhausted that I could hardly put one foot in front of another. During chemo I felt like a limp rag. Strangely, post-treatment, I am hyperactive, run up the stairs two at a time (shouldn't, I know, but it is a hard habit to break) can limbo and have so much surplus energy that I am nearly bouncing off the walls just like a kid with ADHD!!! Has anyone else experienced this reaction or am I just strange?
Hi ladies, hope you're all OK?
Just nipped in to rave about a course/workshop that I attended today provided by a charity called Look Good, Feel Better. They run afternoon workshops for women diagnosed with cancer that focus on skin care and make-up and it was absolutely wonderful. Each attendee was given a goody bag of full sized premium skin care products and make up, plus a very lovely bottle of perfume and there were three professional make-up artists available for the dozen or so women who attended to show us how to use the products. The make up artists gave up their own time to teach us and were just the most generous and supportive women. As always, it was also a pleasure to chat with the other attendees and compare notes.
Feeling a bit weepy actually as I'm so overwhelmed by the kindness of everyone involved. If you can get to one of these sessions then I would, it's marvellous life-affirming stuff. If you Google 'Look Good Geel Better' you'll be able to find them.
