Re: The Carer

Sometimes, when I read posts from other Forum users, I quietly feel ashamed in that their plight is far worse than ours. No reason at all to feel this way! One of the uses of this forum is to allow anyone to sound off (anonymously) and get rid of some of the awful build-up of of pressure that can o...

Re: More healthy?

It sounds like a nice area! The sections on the forum in "CSF National and Regional Notice Boards" relate to established Cancer Support France affiliated organisations, and unfortunately there isn't one in your area. The forum is for use by anyone and everyone, whether in an area covered b...

Re: prescription medicale de transport

Good luck.

Re: New Diagnosis

This had always been a major part of our recreation together, in England and in France. She want...
