Hi Kiwi women,

Love this site and have learnt more from here than from my onc, lovely man that he is.

Stage 4 from Nov 2007 and doing Femara at the moment, plus aredia.

Would enjoy a thread for us from this end of the world

In Palmerston North, married with 2 grown girls and loving life.

Hope being stage 4 doesn't mean others are afraid of me, find that a bit weird but it does happen.

Hope all you lovely kiwi ladies know you are welcome in the aussie sisters thread where some of your compatriots already participate. We are looking to see if the mods can move us to some sort of australasia thread as we are currently in the chemo forum. We have many who are well past chemo, some currently in treatment and a good all round selection of nice peeps of all stages to chat and share support with. The more the merrier Smile

Hope to see you there or perhaps in an entirely new forum if the mods feel justified in allowing that.

Hi Girls. I just posted on the other kiwi thread!

It would be nice to have our own thread or an Australasian one, I agree Smile

(gets a bit confusing having 2 kiwi threads!- or is that just me....)

This thread is just a support thread for any kiwi women to come to if needed. we all need each other from where ever we are from, Australia, USA etc and though i will come here, i will also visit other forums and post where ever i want to. it is open to all the community as a help line, venting line, i have had a terrible day  line.  or to just say hello.  i love it here on breast cancer org and just want to be an encourager and listener.  would love a combind forum for us and our australian sistas, guess thats up to the mods. but do feel free to join us here when ever you need to, its just an extra support thread.

Hi all

I post on the Aussie thread as well and they are trying toget their thread moved over to this site. Have been around BCO for a while and have used it as my support group. Tried to start a thread way back but not many of us here then. Like Midnight I will pop in here as well as chat to friends on other threads. Have made wonderful friends through BCO.

It's five years for me, all fine other than having had some hiccups along the way. I retired early from teaching as I have rheumatoid arthritis as well the BC. And I live in Auckland so if anyone is ever up this way I am always happy to have coffee.

Here we go again.

Hello all

Well we've all moved.  I did ask the mods to call this an Australian and New Zealand or NZ forum.  Hopefully they'll make the change soon.  I did explain that while we are all fairly close, we are two seperate countries. lol

Please feel free to contribute to the Aussie Sisters thread too - all are welcome. 

Trish

Sometimes the different countries thing isn't quite grasped by people in other parts of the world :-) Hopefully they can rename it to include Aus and NZ. Especially since some of us span both.
