I'm from Orpington, Kent but have only been here a year. Originally from Hayes near Bromley. I was diagnosed on the 13th Nov. I've had surgery and now waiting for start of radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment. Mands xxx PS this forum has been an inspiration to me and I don't think I could have stayed as strong and grounded without it. Sending all of you positive vibes at whatever stage all you amazing ladies are at xxx

hi there, I am living in the Wigan (Lancashire) area, the sunny climes of Hindley. Have lived in Westhoughon (Bolton) and Worsley/Swinton, Manchester in the past 20 yrs so have friends there. If anyone fancies meeting up for a coffee (and cake!) that would be fab. Am a mum of 2 boys, 6 and almost 3. I will have my mx 1st Nov 2012, would love to chit chat with others in similar situation Jayne
Yes, North Devon is lovely. I have never regretted coming to live here. Not a good place to have cancer, though. I'm feeling quite jealous reading about all the people out there who get LGFB Workshops, pamper days, scarf and wig days etc. Nothing like that where I live. Feels incredibly isolated.
I speak a tiny amount of Japanese, fluent conversational German (not very good but fluent!!), basic French and quite good English!
My dad was a British Army officer so we moved every 2 or 3 years and then when I married my husband (now ex) was headhunted by a firm in northern West Germany so we spent 5 years there living in rented accommodation.
Good question Lizdeb. How many languages do you have? Was it parent's job that moved you around? I moved around a lot from 13 onwards because of my Dad's job ( all in Scotland though) and was at 3 secondary schools in different towns in those years so making new friends happened a lot!
