Re: Booked a place on the Younger Women Together event in Leicester?

Hi Claire, I'm happy to drive. Do you have facebook? If you want to add/send me a message we can sort logistics. Kerry Blake (Davis). Profile pic is of me with a long dark wig and almost bold hubby sticking his tounge out. Hopefully you can find me lol! I don't know if these things are private to send my mobile number 🤣. If your struggling I'll send you my email X

Hi Kerry, I'm from Nottingham wouldn't mind car sharing if you want to or the other option that I know a few are doing is getting the coach xx

Re: Booked a place on the Younger Women Together event in Leicester?

Hi ladies, sorry I have only just seen the email for this forum. My name's Kerry I'm 29 from Nottingham. Was diagnoised with breast cancer April this year. I'm ER positive, Her2 negative and currently undergoing chemo. Also very nervous but excited about the weekend as I haven't been to one of these before and will be lovely to meet you all.

How are the ladies from Nottingham getting there? I was going to drive if anyone wanted a lift

Hi Vickie, we are the same age. I am also BRCA2+ and have had the same treatment to you. The only 2 differences is mine was Lobular and a whopper of a tumour...8.7cm. And I am due to have a full hysterectomy in January 2019. 

 

See you Friday. xxx

Hi Laurie. Hope you’re well. Really sorry. I’ve only just seen your message. My husband has now booked me a coach ticket as the coach station is closer to the venue. The journey is a bit longer but the ticket was only £6 😀. Would you like to get the coach with me? x

Hi, I’m Emma and I was on maternity leave when I was diagnosed last October. I’ve had chemo, a mastectomy, a lymph node clearance and now radiotherapy. I’m having treatment next Friday morning in Leicester, so I may be a little late, but I think it’s a good excuse! Looking forward to meeting you all x

Re: Booked a place on the Younger Women Together event in Leicester?

Hello ladies! I’m Hannah, 35 from Cambridge and I was diagnosed with stage 1 grade 3 triple negative breast cancer at the end of April this year. I’ve just finished 7 cycles of chemotherapy (PC and EC + Partner trial) and am due to have a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction at the beginning of November. I’m nervous about this event but I’m also looking forward to meeting you all and sharing our experiences. 🙂 xx

Re: Booked a place on the Younger Women Together event in Leicester?

Hi I’m Sarah, I’m 29. (sarah.hearn89 on Instagram). I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer 2 months after my wedding and I underwent a mastectomy with temporary tissue expander in April this year. My cancer was ER positive, HER negative.
I’m really rather nervous about next week as the only other person I know who has had breast cancer is my auntie but she’s in her 50s, she’s been a great support but I’m looking forward to meeting women more my age. I’ve spoken to a few people on social media but haven’t actually been to any groups or anything like this before as I didn’t feel ready. I’m looking forward to meeting all you lovely ladies though and sharing our experiences x

Re: Booked a place on the Younger Women Together event in Leicester?

Hi everyone I'm Claire and I finished active treatment last year. I was in two minds whether to attend or not as I get very nervous meeting new people. I was also wondering how the ladies from Nottingham were intending to travel to Leicester xx

I would say I have got used to it...but not sure if that’s the case! it’s not pleasant!! Hope your chemo session goes ok. Look forward to seeing you next Friday x

                                                  Younger Women Together in Leicester
                                                                  19/20 October 2018
 
Booked a place on the Younger Women’s Forum in Leicester but worried about going alone? Considering booking a place but not sure?
 
Every year we receive queries from women, including concerns about coming along to the Forum on their own. Feedback from previous forums has said how helpful it was to talk on the Forums before the event.
This thread is a chance for you to say hello and “meet” others attending the Forum. I will check in regularly and if you have any questions do let me know and I will do my best to answer them.
 
Look forward to meeting you next week
Steph
