1 year anniversary

Well its been a year this week since I had my surgery. This time last year I could not help but feel doom and gloom. I sat down to plan my sons future, things like who would take care of him, a bank account for his future etc etc. I still worry about the future but there has been no major concerns healthwise. So for the present I am looking forward to the future and trying to enjoy each new day. I know it sounds corny but until you have been through or are going through something like this you don't appreiciate how special life is. I am really grateful to the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation for being there with there site, reading other peoples stories was and still is a fantastic wealth of support for me.

  • Happy anniversary loopyloo and glad to hear that reading other people's stories has been a support to you. I'm sure your story will also be very inspiring to others as well.

  • Hi. A year's a big anniversary. Keep it up. I think I felt the first year was the most difficult, and after that, I could see light. It's a struggle all the way, but worth fighting for. Roll on - second anniversary. :) Bill

  • Hi loopyloo,

    Its a pleasure to meet you,congratulations on your first "anniversary".I have just celebrated my third on the 14th Oct.My life was turned upside down when I was told I had Lung Cancer,and it did take some time for my jangled nerves to settle,but with the passage of time and the support of friends and relatives,not forgetting here I began to feel I have a future.I met up with Robert Lowe on this site,if you have'nt read his story yet,I can recommend it,there are other survivor stories here if ever you are feeling a wee bit down these are worth referring to.My very best wishes to you,and your son,for a long, healthy and happy future.

  • Congrats on your first anniversary of many! I KNOW exactly how everyone feels as i have lung cancer also. I too am celebrating my first year of being diagnosed. It helps a lot to read all the positive notes here.

    I am feeling pretty good. I have been in remission since last Feb when i finished my treatments.

    I am so happy for you Loopyloo! Keep up the great work!!

  • I think sites like this and the roy castle lung cancer foundation offered me a massive amount of support and helped me to remain positive. They have made my journey so much easier and even though I have never met any of the people from these sites, I felt they was at my side every step of the way.

    I am also very happy for you and trust you are keeping well xx
