Hi everyone, My wife Lisa has secondary breast cancer and this year, like last, I'm running London Marathon to raise money for Breast Cancer Now. Last year Lisa came to London with me and was part of the cheer squad on the Embankment, she's hoping to do the same again this year too. Whilst I'm battling through 26 miles, despite the toughness of the challenge, I realise it pales into insignificance compared to the daily fight Lisa and the many other like her go through. Last year we raised over £3500 for the charity, we want to do the same again - if you can spare anything to support us then my link is here - https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/DarrenMcSweeney Thank you Darren and Lisa

My wife has secondary mets in her liver. (I post on here as we fight this as a team) She turned 50 this year and so yesterday received a "generic" invite to breast cancer screening. Wouldn't you think with today's technology that a flag or marker could be placed on someone's records to say "this person doesn't need generic letters" about how screening is great and can identify Breast Cancer early? I'm not saying don't invite people if it's still necessary, just be a bit more sympathetic! Are there are flags / markers for ladies who have had say a double mastectomy? Imagine if they received a letter telling them about breast screening?
