• I only finished my last chemo last week, yet to get my scan, and I had breathlessness too. Just small things like walking to the letterbox or down to feed the chickens, would really take it out of me. My oxygen levels were good too.

    Cheers, Nicole

I was diagnosed in May this year with stage 3C ovarian cancer which has…[Read more]

  • I found my Resilliance Kit very useful. Especially as I ordered it very early after my diagnosis. My gynaecological oncologist was very impressed when he saw it too and he has helped me fill in some of the fields. It is very important for me to be organised, it is just my nature, and as this is something that helps me keep everything in the one…[Read more]
