Hi,

My name in Claire.  I was diagnosed August 2017 with stage 2 grade 3 triple negative breast cancer.  I was also found to have a BRCA1 mutation.  I had a mastectomy, chemo and radiotherapy which finished in June this year and then in July had a second mastectomy and my ovaries removed.  Looking forward to meeting you all.

Hi Steph, I’ve emailed you, thanks for opportunity but I understand it might not be for me as I’m in a grey area. I don’t seem to fit or belong anywhere but I will find support, enjoy the event and thanks for trying x

Hi everyone,

 

I’m Emily. I’m 43 and was diagnosed in June 2017 with stage 2 Triple Negative and finished my treatment in January 2018. I can’t wait to get to know you all better. I’ve found the post treatment phase surprisingly hard, with the expectation to get back to normal, so spending time with others with a shared experience is going to be great. Smiley Happy

Re: Younger Women Together in London

Thanks for letting me join in and I am so looking forward to meeting you all.x I am bit of a different case. Diagnosed whilst taking a year off to do charity work with my husband, I had to be treated abroad as I had to start treatment within a week of getting my diagnosis so there was  no time to come back to the UK. I am a stage 4 (long story why!) TNBC survior, radical mastectomy on left hand side. 8 x chemo, 6 weeks of radiation. Finished treatment 4 years ago but I have just been diagnosed with the BRCA gene Smiley Sad so I feel I am starting over again and feeling overwhelmed. But I am here Smiley Happy.

Re: Younger Women Together in London

Hello all,

So, before I introduce myself, I want to say thank you!

On day one, I will have this forum page open, so when you say: "Hi, I'm so-and-so," I will check your name, your introduction, and says "yes, we've met." It's possible that we'll repeat the same introduction 101 times (",)

So, who am I? I am Rae - I live so close to the venue, I could attend weaing my Pyjama Smiley Happy

I noticed my lump when I was 33. I am 35 now and was diagnosed in October 2017 with left breast G2, ER8, PR8, Lymph nodes positive.

I am really looking forward to meeting everyone, and I'll tell you all why next week Smiley Happy

Re: Younger Women Together in London

Hello Everyone Smiley Happy I am really looking forward to meeting you all!

Being thrust into this experience has been quite intense (understatement of the century), and though I have had support from friends and family, I have felt the need to speak with women who 'get me'. 

In Feb I was diagnosed with IDC Stage 1 Grade 3, Hormone + Her2 -

I finished chemo in the summer, started Tamoxifen and am now trying to create my new normal, which at times is exciting and other times not so exciting! 

And that's it, in a nutshell... Smiley Happy
