12 years on
I guess some of you might still remember me.
Sadly many of the regulars I started in here with are literally no longer with us, unlike me. I am still alive but do not hang out in here.
Obviously cancer never stops finding new recruits and it is good to see the forum still functions.
You might like to know my good news. You can see the short-version of my life with cancer in my profile.
I was 48 when diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, advanced to ovaries, liver and lungs. I had a lot of treatment and was very strict with my self-care. Currently cancer free.
I turned 60 this year. Lucky lady!
Celebrated by cycling up Mont Ventoux in.the dark, to see the sunrise over the Alps. I’ve also started doing 10 mile time trials on my bike. Who’d a thought that 12 years ago. I still have a miserable time with my guts most days, but life goes on well enough.
Merry Christmas to you all and try to stay optimistic about what 2019 might bring.
It’s easy to add pictures so I added one of my with my sister and my mum, who is also a bowel cancer survivor who used these forums in the past.
