  • Hi Shands, it’s good to hear you’ve got through your Chemo, I personally understand how awful it is, I asked my Oncologist if I could stop after 4 sessions as I felt so bad, but I persevered to the end. Regarding your questions re flowers, I will pu…

  • Hi Lou, hope you are well. Apparently once you stop the Herceptin over time your heart function should improve, they will probably do more regular echocardiograms to check on it, there no problem..... had a lot worse 😱 I do find the Oncologist I hav…

  • Hi Rob, thank you for the compliment regarding my wig, I must say that it is the best purchase I’ve made during this awful time. I would not have had the confidence to go out without it. Although my hair is now returning, it’s coming through white😱😱…
  • Hi Sue, I was advised not to try the cold cap as most people loose some if not all of their hair anyway. A friend did say to me “it’s only hair” which quite upset me as it’s so much more than that. I had a short hair cut, started chemo and lost my h…
