Hello everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that there is light at the end of this horrible tunnel!! We went for hubby's results app yesterday after finishing his treatment in July and its all clear!!!! 

We had some very dark days and he felt like giving up at times - but - it's gone!!! 

He still has a road of recovery ahead of him but we have got this and he is doing so well.

It's my birthday today and we have gone away for our first little break since op/treatment. Lots to celebrate.

It's taken a year out of our life - it all started October last year - but all the pain was worth it.

Thank you to everyone on this wonderful group that has given so much support and advice. I will still come on here and share things that have helped us too.

Lots of love and keep fighting!!
