I hope the day goes well in Belfast Una. We have one in Cardiff next May. It's good to get together and a shame we're like ships passing in the night. If I weren't on chemo I'd be tempted to fly over and catch up with you all.

Campaign for better treatment still continues here in Wales. We should compare notes. Northern Ireland and Scotland were mentioned at the end of the APPG last Wednesday with you in Ireland and Scotland ahead of us in Wakes as getting an awareness-raising campaign going. We have an article in our national paper tomorrow about patients moving to England for treatment. Will send you a link. Xxx

Power to your elbow, love Annie

What I meant to say was, she says, now being stone cold sober etc., all power to your elbow, Una!!! Plus, I prefer to call our sorority SURVIVORS and not sufferers, because although we do whine a bit and moan and groan, and we all grieve for those who have left, despite having OC, we manage to pull through. Just a thought… Vicky xxx Jim and I had dinner and a glass of wine last night… Thank goodness for husbands/partners…
