I'm wondering how many West Coast Gals we currently have on here. It makes it a little easier to compare notes as our health-care is provincial. Would be nice to share tips and such to each other as we wade though the health-care Bureaucracy.

I'm in Richmond BC (a part of the Vancouver Lower Mainland) and the majority of my treatment has been at Vancouver General Hospital and Vancouver Cancer Agency.. with a few small surgical procedures done at UBC and my original Lumpectomy at Richmond General. My GP is also in Richmond. Ive been on the BCO boards since 2007 with a few breaks.

Please pipe in even if only to let us know your here Wink

Hugs Suz

I live in richmond, definitely I want a hang on. I planned to join 2019 catcus club gathering, but radiation side effect made me very tired that I cancelled it at last moment.

Whoever organizes, I would suggest put a few (say three) options, and then all women reply with yes/no to all the options, then we can figure out easily which one is the most convenient one. As for the place, ideally someplace that is convenient for transit while have parking.

My next checkup is Nov 4, hope this one back all clear quickly.
