Hi I’ve just joined the group so would like to introduce myself. My name is Liz and I’m a 52 year old Mother of 2.I was diagnosed with Cancer last June. I’d been in pain for so long that when I was finally told what I had was devastating. I’ve got Lung, Spinal and now Secondary Bone Cancer. I’ve only been able to get through these last 19 months with the help of my amazing Family and Friends. I’ve been on my new treatment for the last 3 months and having a scan next Friday to see if there is any improvement. I find it difficult every time I have these scans as the last time I had one it turned out my treatment had stopped working. I felt like I’d gone back to last June. Instead of letting it keep knocking me down, I picked myself up and got on with my new treatment. This they expect to only work for about 9 months but I will deal with whatever I have to when the time comes. I don’t really talk about my condition to my family as I don’t want to see the hurt in their eyes. Especially my daughter’s. It will be nice to chat to others who understand how I feel.
