What a lovely great supportive idea.

Take care everyone.

I absolutely loved the poem you posted :).  It sums up the journey perfectly and then almost talks about finding the support from ladies on the Macmillan Community, doesn't it?

Lesley Helen thank you for starting this thread, what a great idea.

I’ve enjoyed all the thoughts so far, 

I had hoped for some words of wisdom to post but nothing springs to mind yet. I’m sure it will and when that happens I’ll share it here.


In the meantime I will carry on being inspired by others!



Amalie xx

May the force be with you

Mine for today. I said no today and honoured me
