    I am so sad to hear that @HelenJill. My sister had a combination of brain and liver mets. It's an impossibly hard combination. This disease just sucks. I will keep Jackie in my thoughts.

    Thank you for letting us know. The nature of this forum is that we're often left wondering. A big hug to you and all of Jackie's family and friends. Keep her smile in your heart. K xox

    Well that is the shittest thing I’ve read at 3:30am for a long time. May she be sipping espresso in Rome and living la dolce vita now in peace xx

    I don't get over to the main forum very often and just reading through after posting my happy news of being 8 years clear.  Then to read this.  So very sorry for your loss @HelenJill may @Jackie50 rest in peace. 
    Hugs to you all.

    Hi Paula. A big congrats to you. 8 years that’s fabulous. Jackie and I went to the Field of Women in Melbourne last year celebrating our 5 year survival milestone. We had a fabulous weekend. We were both devastated 3 months later when she was diagnosed with Mets. I will miss her so much.

    @HelenJill thankyou for your lovely words.  I felt guilty for my happy post when I read this.  @Jackie50 was a member of our recon group and I see had not long had hers.  How lovely you shared the field of women together.  I can imagine how devastated you must have been. Such a cruel disease. Take care of you and treasure every day.

    Hello @HelenJill what a great memory to have attended the field of women with Jackie, I cant imagine how devastating it was for Jackie to receive the news that her cancer had returned 3 months later.  Like @mum2jj has said, it is such a cruel disease.  Please dont hesitate to contact our helpline if you need any support and or information.  Best wishes
