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.
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.
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 so I feel I am starting over again and feeling overwhelmed. But I am here .
Hi, my name is Malina and I am looking forward to meeting everyone on Friday. I was diagnosed in November 2017 and underwent chemo, surgery and radiotherapy and am now on Tamaxofen.
Hello Everyone 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...
Hi Ladies, im Gemma, 36 from Sutton in Surrey. Diagnosed with triple positive stage 3, grade 2 IDC in Oct 17. What a whirlwind of a year it's been! Look forward to meeting you all next week.
Hi Steph, Thanks! My name is Hayley and I am 42. I was diagnosed with stage III (ER/PR- HER2+) breast cancer in November 2017. My formal treatment ends at the end of this year. Looking forward to meeting everyone!
Booked a place on the Younger Women Together event in London but worried about going alone?
Every year we receive queries from women, including concerns about coming along to the event on their own. Feedback from previous events has said how helpful it was to talk on the Forums before the event.
This thread is a chance for you to say hello and “meet” others attending the event. I will check in regularly and if you have any questions do let me know and I will do my best to answer them.
Look forward to meeting you next week
