Hello 😊

Hi everyone
The fact that bowel cancer is in the spotlight at present just makes me realise how lucky I am to be able to call myself a survivor ( 8 years now)
I initially stayed on the cancerchat forum after my treatment, but as life returned to normal I felt I had nothing to contribute.
The process of diagnosis, treatment and then being discharged can be daunting so I am happy to contribute to this forum in any way I can.


Good morning @Barberella, a very warm welcome and thank you for sharing the lovely fact that it is 8 years since your diagnosis. I am sure that your experience will be of great help to people. Take care, Kim :x::x:


Hello @Barberella and welcome! Thank you for coming here and willing to share your experience. Most people tend to go away when treatment is finished and all is well but it is lovely and hopeful to hear from a bowel cancer survivor :x::x:


Hi @Barberella I am coming up to my first year anniversary of my diagnosis so great to see & hear from you.
May you be contributing for many many years to come.:)
Take care
