life has been so busy lately, what with my involvement in the National Cancer Surviourship Initiative and the core group for Vocational Rehabilitation, and my forth coming trip to Australia as a representative of Breakthrough Breast Cancer for the Reach for Recovery conference. Last Thursday i attended an event to celebrate the 1st Anniversary of the merger of Cancerbackup and Macmillan, i met some lovely caring people who are the trustee's and donator's whose very generous financial contributions help to keep this fantastic site for people affected by cancer going. It was not difficult for me to make the speech i did, it came straight from the heart, i have been involved with this site since before it became what it is now, myself and a few others used to make sure that anyone who posted on the old forum that they got a more prompt reply to their posts, then six of us test drove the new site just before its launch at the beginning of March 2008, i will always be proud that the six of us helped to shape what this site has now become, and now, just over a year later, well, i am so happy that i have met some of the people off here face to face, and yes, some of them have passed away, but its not with sadness that i remember them, its the way that they still offered words of support and help to those who needed them, even though they were near their own end of life journey in their own cancer that has me remembering them as the most lovely caring people. fond memories are held in my heart. Anyway, i just wanted to say all this, and long may this supportive, informative, caring site continue. lots of love to you all Alisonxxx
