Re: Just diagnosed

Hi Cheryl, You must, of course, listen to the advice of your doctors. What I meant was that there is sometimes a number of possible ways to be treated.

Although it relates to treatment in the UK, the basic information is the same for both countries with the same treatment options. There is a downloadable booklet on breast cancer which may help you to compose your quest...

One of the biggest challenges facing CSF is becoming known to those who may need information and/or support in the future. The best we can do is advertise our existence and what we do as widely as possible. One CSF member is also a retired BBC employee and suggested that we contacted the editor of t...

Re: A poem to Linda from Hagar and friends

I found the funeral service very moving, especially the tributes from Hagar and the French lady. It isn't easy to stand in front a packed church at such an emotional time, they did very well, as of course did Andy. Linda would have been proud, let's hope she was looking on!
