    Well I am new to this and don;t really know where to begin... Basically I am 17, about it be 18, and my mum was diagnosed with cancer a couple of months ago.

  • Forum Post: Re: Hair loss after chemo

    I am a 68 year old male and have a GMB IV brain tumour. My hair has been grey for many years. After radiotherapy I lost about a 2 inch wide strip above my right ear. I called it my dodgy haircut, but my hairdresser did a good job with a comb-over. It then grew back dark - to fill the whole area. It looks...

  • Forum Post: Re: Is the cold cap worth it and chemo questions

    Hi Jo, I am glad you found my post helpful. My hair is still looking good and is about shoulder length now! I am planning on having it cut and coloured soon at Tony & Guy as they have staff trained in hair care for cancer patients. I know it will be mega expensive, but your hair can be totally...
  • Forum Post: Started losing hair 2 days ago :(

    Day 15 after first lot of FEC and I've noticed I'm losing my hair. I didn't expect it to start so soon. I thought I'd have another week until I started my second treatment. I'm prepared for it, but not emotionally. On the whole I've been ok, but it doesn't stop it upsetting...

    Hi, I have been recovering from my lumpectomy the past 3 weeks. The pain much better than I thought, and doing well. Had my results from the surgery on Tues this week, only to find the cancer is bigger than they thought, it's travelled to one node. So I'm going to need chemo first, then a...

  • Blog Post: Life is a rollercoaster ...

    You know ... I used to say “ if only I could have a pound for every compliment I receive for them red shoes.” However, over the last few weeks it would be for each time someone has said to me “Go sh ... doesn't time fly ... where did that year go ...? ” These comments have...
  • Blog Post: Simply red ...

    My mother died 14 years ago, aged 53, of ovarian cancer. She had been diagnosed five years before ... but to be truthful the cancer had probably been there since her early forties, when she was a similar age to me. For a year or two they had said she was peri-menopausal and by the time they realised...
  • Blog Post: You are one in a million ...

    Well, actually I am not one in a million ... I am one in 28 million. What I am not sure about is whether that makes me more or less special ....? Last weekend saw the end of the Tour de France. Yes, I know what you are saying. “ Tour de France?! What is she on? " That it is up there with my...

    I have a confession to make. What another one, how many do you have? Well ... probably quite few ... but this one is about numbers. Now ... before your vivid imagination gets too excited ... I am talking about numeracy, mathematics, figures ... It is a kinda phobia that I have I had most of my life....
