Sharing experience is a significant part of support and Fiona, one of our members, has a blog at http://fidancingintherain.wordpress.com. She captures the cancer diagnosis and treatment rollercoaster very well!

After the treatment finishes – then what? Written by Dr Peter Harvey This article has recently been read by several of our members – it reviews how it feels when the treatment finishes, and the issues of cancer survival. Despite being written some years ago our members felt a great resonance with the content of the article and felt it might be of use to other members of the group – and also potentially in helping our partners and loved ones to understand what we are going through. We should warn you that this is a ‘no-holds barred’ article, using some emotive language, so if you are feeling rather sensitive it may be best to leave it for another day or ask a friend or a BreastFriend to read it first. (The existence of the link in no way endorses the article nor asserts any accuracy – it is simply provided as of potential interest.)
