4.5 Years Remission Stage 4 with Lung Mets


Hi lovely ladies

It's that time of year again!! Scan results time.  It still strikes the fear into me but I am extremely happy to report that I am now 4 and a half years in complete clinical remission with clear lungs and no sign of disease anywhere!!

I never take this for granted and do struggle mentally with how lucky I have been. I know we have lost some ladies recently, my friend Amanda who I met through here being one of them.  I sometime question if I should keep coming back to update you but I know how much it meant to me to find women who were years clear and it gave me a lot of hope.

I know a lot of you ladies are fighting and I am in awe of you all but I'm proof that it is possible so keep going.

All my love as always, 

Anna xxxx

Hi Anna & Greeni

I'm Danielle, 39 year old mum of 2, I was originally diagnosed with stage 2b cc in Dec 2015 and recieved Chemo/Radiotherapy and Brachytherapy in the early part of 2016.

This is my first time posting, I've just been diagnosed with a recurrence of CC , (stage 4) behind my belly button and in my peritoneium.  It's so lovely reading your comments and how well you are doing after your recurrence...it gives me so much hope. I'm due to have my kidney function  test next tuesday (20th) to hopefully start  my  chemo Taxo and Carbol the week after. I haven't been offered Avastin as yet? Is this something I can ask for fo you know please?
