  2. Hi is there any retreats you know of where cancer survivors meet - where they can share experiences. I’m at a cross road in my life after cancer. I’m 5 years clear and just realis3d it’s hit me - I’m ready to give up on a lot of stuff and a bit lost

    1. Cancer Care Parcel says:

      I am not aware of any but its a great idea. I am sorry you feel so bad. Can you give Macmillen a call as they may be able to help?

    2. Penny Brohn is a great place to have a couple nights break and join others in the same dark place as your in .I went and came out seeing he light...?give it a go and take free it's in Bristol UK butnworth it 100%im a terminal lung Mets from breast started in 1995 and my positive thinking helps but dark days creep up but find some sunshine even in a book and lift your spirits...good luck xxxx

  3. I feel lost.
    I was diagnosed with Colon cancer last week.
    Everyone else is sad but getting in With their own life......

    1. Ann Marie Hughes says:

      I was diagnosed with Colon cancer too this Wednesday (two days ago) and I am having major surgery this coming Monday. I agree everyone seems sad, yet here I am facing it head on and taking each day as it comes. The ones I thought would be my rock and there for me, are in bits and I feel like I am in this alone, but I know I will fight it either way even if I am on my own. Maybe it's the shock that they are this way and once I ask for help they may just be there. Good luck

  4. Mandy Maddox says:

    I have throat canicer for the second time but this time it's terminal so I just get morphine to ease the pain a little. I feel for all of you and I pray with all my heart that you are blessed with successful treatment and go on to live healthy happy lives with you families. And last but NOT least. 'Be lucky'
