I just posted a question about hair colour and it got me thinking about all of the people I've met on this site since December.  I know that I've still got a lot of "new experiences" to come but looking back on the last 8 months of diagnosis, surgery and chemo, I couldn't have done it, and stayed relatively sane, without the support of you all.  Your advice, friendship and the odd laugh has helped carry me through it.  My memory is completely shot so I apologise if I don't always remember what stage of treatment everyone is at - sometimes I can't remember what stage I'm at! - but I do care and appreciate so much the care I've been shown here.

I'm not planning on going anywhere but it seemed that the end of chemo was a good place for acknowledgement.

    Well done, Gaye, CONGRATULATIONS on seeing it thru.  

    I hope you've been able to have a celebration of sorts as a fitting 'end' to the chemo treatment.  I also hope you are feeling better now & will be getting stronger & fitter again, with each passing day xxx

    Take care xxx

    So great to finish chemo. It can feel a little daunting moving into the next phase and thinking of yourself as a SURVIVOR. But you are. Welcome to the club..
