Hi I just thought I’d pop in to this group to wish you luck for tomorrow’s oncology appointment. It looks like your fairly new to the site so I hope your finding your way around. 

I hope you don’t mind me suggesting that you might also like to join the carers group, I’m thinking that sometimes no matter what the cancer the pressures of having to give support to the patient and remaining positive is the same for lots of cancers. Just a thought for as well as this group, I’ve put the link below.

It also sometimes helps to complete your profile with a few details about what’s brought you to the site. It helps people when they answer you and helps you sometimes when people answer you to look at their profile. To complete one just click on your user name find edit type away and save. There’s a bit about it in the help section. If you click on mine, you can see I am in need of a shorter version which I will get round to doing sometime.

best wishes for tomorrow, oops later today.
