3days till d day

hi everyone hope your weekend was good,had renal test today to check kidneys,also ordered a wig,spent a really great weekend with children and grandchildren theirs nothing like 3 laughing boys to keep your spirits up and wear u out couldnt even think about oc last night i was exhausted.Just read the vit c thing i read something about this years ago and to be fair i have taken full strenght vit c every day morning and night for many and even boosted the dose when ive had a cold i dont think it worked.

Next thing does anyone know if brighton do the race for life only i have done for many years and i cant find 1 close to me in crawley west sussex on the cancer research website keeps telling me theres nothing local.

thanking all of you for being here on our incredible

love Yvonne

Yvonne good luck with your treatment. You will find that your 3 grandchildren will be your best chemo.

Always remember that on the site there is always someone that can share an experience with you,

Regards Barbara.


Hi Yvonne, I'm so sorry i have no information if Brighton do the race for life, just made me smile when you put about grandchildren keeping spirits up- I have a 1 yr old grandson and i forget everything when i'm with him :-) aren't they a blessing :-). Think the Vitamin C only works when injected- not in tablet form - the body only absorbs what it needs and the rest passes through, where as with injection it's a huge hit to a direct area :-) x janette x


You sound as though you are starting out in exactly the right frame of mind. Bearing with your grandchildren AND laughing! A perfect combination. Positivity will carry you through.



thanku to everyone,well its less then 24 hrs now,and i want to give u a little laugh yesterday had bloods taken before chemo and i was so lucky(not)to get the olympic javilin thrower of blood taking iam not sure exactly how far she went in with the needle but i have awarded her a gold and will be giving her a large swerve in the future.



Yes it was a smile, I am sure that a few of us will know what you mean. Good luck.

Regards Barbara


Good luck tomorrow Yvonne!!! The first treatment can seem scary as all so new, but soon feels 'normal' -what ever that is. Hope it all goes smoothly and you feel ok afterwards.

Great you are so positive and active-I found exercise helped me through my chemo but everyones feels different on it, expect you grandchildren will keep you laughing and active-they sound wonderful ! love Hilary xx
