Hi, I was diagnosed stage 4 breast cancer end of August this year (first diagnosis), so this is all very new and raw to me!
ER + 8/8, so on hormonal therapy for now. Really struggling with fatigue and muscle weakness,and a few other side effects (I already have chronic fatigue syndrome for the last 6 years).
I am trying to be strong and positive in front of everyone, as I have not told my family that it is incurable, but very difficult when side effects have made me feel alot worse!
I will be arriving on Friday morning,possibly around 8:30, as will have to travel in early when my partner goes in to work in Manchester.
Felt nervous about attending on my own, but guess we are all in the same boat! Hope we can all gain support and share experiences with each other.
I was diagnosed with Stage 3 ER +ve in May 13 and have been throuh chemo, surgery and radiotherapy to find out in Aug last year it had spread to my spine. We are very lucky in Cornwall to have a great breast care team and I have recently had the opportunity to attend the 1st group in Cornwall like this. I am looking forward to meeting you all next week. Stay strong ladies
I am arriving for dinner on Thursday evening and look forward to meeting those of you who will be there.
I was was diagnosed with primary breast cancer in March 2011 and secondary in October 2013. I do attend a secondary support group run by Breast Cancer Care.
Look forward to seeing you all there to meet and talk in person.
I was also diagnosed in December last year but I have haven't met anyone my own age dealing with this so I am so looking forward to meeting you all. I am getting a very early train on the Friday morning so I will see you all bright and early on the Friday.
Hi Elizabeth I'm triple negative. I was diagnosed with primary and secondary last October. It is the first support group I have attended but can't wait to meet everybody. I will see you Friday.Nadine xx
Hello everyone I'm going to the event, it is my first one. I've not been out much in the last year since being diagnosed so really looking forward to meeting you all. Nadine x
I'm going (just sorting the logistics of getting from York to Manchester that early as can't drive anymore (due to brain mets.)
Really looking forward to meeting everyone.
How do the rooms work? We do get our own rooms don't we? Just a bit worried about sharing with a stranger!!
