    Hello everyone,

    I passed a milestone this week. I have now been cancer free for 6 years. So much has happened in that time, and one of the highlights of this was to join Cancer Connections.

    Got our results back

    NO CHANGE!!! Exciting but not, we really thought there would be a little shrinkage, but no change is still awesome.

    It's the small things!! Ben asked the big question.... will I ever drive again??? And she responds- yes, because you have had 2 stable scans you can drive again NOW!!! OMG!!!!!!

    This just makes our lives so much easier!! What a relief for everyone - including Ben getting his independence back. 6 months ago I never thought I would hear these words!

    *** Happy dance happy dance***

    Today Ben had a scan

    Wednesday we find out the results

    I'm feeling excited, nervous, panicked, anxious, nauseated then excited again.

    He's been so well, the best I've seen him in a long time, maybe just maybe 2013 is our year.... the year to kick 2012 to the curb!

    I'll report back....... with awesome news I hope!!

    Hi, I was diagnosed with Glioblastoma (GBM)Dec 2012. Diagnosis and prognosis was a huge shock as I have always been fit, active and healthy. It was the most horrific Christmas for my family and friends. The whole experience was so surreal, "this happens to other people not us". We are now coming to terms with our situation through the support and positive attitude of family, friends and medical staff.

    I'm 23 years old - last month I was diagnosed with TCC in the bladder and had it removed.

    It was Stage 1 and my future treatment is thankfully only a cystocscopy (spelling might be off on that one!) in 3 months to check if it has returned, then at 9 months, then every 12 months.

    I was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 kidney cancer and still really don't know what to expect? 12 months ago I didn't know I had cancer until my tumor ruptured and within days I had lost a kidney. With no chemo or radiation as an option for treatment I was holding on to the hope that the surgeon had been able to successfully remove all traces of the cancer. Unfortunately this was not to be and now it has spread to both lungs. Wanting to know as much as possible about what I had and after doing my own research I got fairly depressed and confused.

    One of my long bucket lists items was a river cruise in Europe. We have previously done river cruises in Russia, Cambodia/Vietnam, and Burma. We are not keen on big cruise liners, but river cruises, with < 150 people are great.
