It's not often I visit these forums nowadays, but today I chanced across this site again, and it set me thinking ... for each and every one of you starting this journey, whether you are some miles down the road or just at the beginning don't ever lose hope ...the reason for writing this is back when I was diagnosed in 2000 aged 39 I feared the worst (as we all do) my journey was hard with lots of setbacks but early in my diagnosis I met a woman who had been diagnosed 18 yrs earlier, far from being encouraged by this, I just didn't feel I would be so lucky.. well i am here to tell you I AM! 17yrs on i have a good life. Keep the faith ladies x .....p.s that lady I met all those years ago? Yup in her 36yr LIFEafter cancer.
