• Hi Karen,

    Yes it was a horrible thing to hear. I know Cancer is an unpredictable thing and I will certainly fight it with all I have. I had accepted the fact that I would have 3 to 5 years if the Olaporib had worked but unfortunately that wasn’t to be. I have a friend that has recommended Hemp Oil which I might give a try.

    i really trust my…[Read more]

  • Hi

    I ended up only having 5 of my planned 6 treatments of Carboplatin due to my platelets and the symptoms off my autoimmune disease flaring. I was started on Olaparib (I’m Bracca 2 positive) which I took for 7 weeks unfortunately I experienced abdominal pain the whole time (my recurring cancer is in the Peritoneal near the liver) I was sent for…[Read more]

    Hi Rachel

    I am a single mother of a 26 year old trans daughter, so as you can imagine between her disphoria and anxiety I’m more her support system, so it’s a bit of give and take at the moment. I’m lucky to have a lot of good friends who have rallied around me, they even compete to see who will be my chemo buddy, I had the first 4 booked out but…[Read more]

  • Hi, my name is Karen. Recently I was admitted to hospital with severe Diverticulitis, I was told I would need to have 5 days of intravenous antibiotics. After a CT scan on the 4th day the doctor told me that he thought we were dealing with something more serious. I was told that I would have to have an aspiration of the fluid in my belly so it…[Read more]
