Good morning Sunshine


Hello all my lovely smiler friends, just popped in to say I hope you are all managing your problems with that smile, I am still waking up each morning which is a bonus so no complaints there, still fighting the cancer as it seems to like me as no matter what sort of treatment I have, it does not want to go away. I have another scan in a weeks time then back to the oncologist to see what treatment they have for me now as the lovely doctor in Exeter has said he will not do what I call the burning of the tumours (RFA)as it is not a cure and as happened last time can cause the lungs to collapse and weaken them more, other than that all is well.

Really good to read that Suzy is smiling and positive, what a lovely lady.

Right you are enjoy life as much as possible and remember please keep smiling and thank you for all the help and sorry no joke at this time. I think of you all when I need that little lift when things get a bit heavy.

Oh just to let you know I have spoken with Lyn and she is still taking really lovely photo's and getting on with her life.

That's all for now folks keep smiling xxx ;) :) Fred

Pleased to hear from you Fred. I hope the doctors have the answer - there is so much research into cancer that any day the right treatment could come along. Hope your wife and daughter are OK. Best wishes to all including Lyn. Love Iris x

Hi my lovely pal.

Good luck with your scan. Mention Nivolumab to your Consultant. The drug company were offering it to certain people. My Consultant said I wouldn't be accepted but worth a try for you.

Thanks to your support I'm still positive but not smiling today. Somebody has given me a rotten cold.

Love Suzy (W)xxxx

holly17 in reply to Suzy6

Thanks my love will do, I don't know what they have next in line, but seeing they have been treating the cancer in the right lung for just over 8 years and now its been in the left one for just about a year, its most strange I am still here, I am aiming to get in the GUINNESS book of records, and if I do your aim will be to over take me. Hope your cold gets better soon, ONCE ITS GONE GET THAT SMILE BACK IN PLACE.

Love Fred aka smiler xxx

Good to see you're back, Fred. Keep fighting !


Nice to hear from you. all the best.

LOve Sian
