Big Thank you

Hello everyone.

I just wanted to say thank you for all the Birthday messages. And Especially to Gwyn for the lovely poem, It meant a lot and really made me smile..

It was a very quiet birthday, not much celebrating was done. Myself and Mark seem to be going through a rough patch so my birthday was clouded by arguments.

My daughter tried her best to make it nice for me.

Thanks once again to all who wished me a happy birthday.

Lots of love

Suzanne. xxxx

I am proud that Your last poem was for me..


:) :) :)


Belated happy birthday Suzanne. I have missed a lot of postings recently due to not being online for long periods at a time. So hope you will forgive me for not posting on the day. I'm still playing catch up.

I am saddened that what should have been a celebration day was marred with arguments. Your daughter does sound wonderful. I love my son unconditionally and he's wonderful, but I sometimes read about the special relationships women have with their daughters on here and can't help but feel envious. I think it may be the 'woman' thing, even though the men in my life (that sounds more exciting than it actually is - Husband and son I mean) are wonderful beyond words, I always feel that a mother/daughter relationship can be ultra special.

I am even more saddened to hear that this forum seems to be changing. As a new member, I don't know how it used to be, but it has given me a lot of answers, support and hope since I found it.

Love Tay xx


Hi Tay.

Thank you for the belated happy birthday wish.

I love my daughter so very much and love spending time with her.. It is sad that this special day was not all it could have been. Next year I think i will take myself away for the day.

It is very sad that this site is not what it used to be,When i joined it was an amazing place to come for help and most of all support, I think that maybe the reason for this site has been lost somewhere along the way. I have to admit that i don't come on here as much as i used too.

Maybe you could join us on FB.

Hope you are well

Lots of love

Sorry Gwyn.

I wasn't trying to poach any one!



If I remember rightly, the break to form a new forum on facebook was at a time when a few ladies did not like men being on ovacome since they themselves were not dealing with the disease but acting as carers. I do remember being told in rather stern terms I would never be allowed to join the fb forum. Hence the forming of a clique which did have an affect on the good work overcome provide. My advice is to stay with overcome and not join a forum wherby someone decides who can join and who cant. It stinks!!!


I was being FRIENDLY!!! something that most people on here have forgotten how to be!!!


All I will say is that there were some ladies who actually thought Sandra did not exist and was a figment of my imagination. All said in private on facebook. It still stinks!!!


I did not hear any off that.

I do not think there is anything wrong with creating the facebook page. I am sorry that you feel it should not exist. To my knowledge I haven't done or said anything wrong to you. And I did not do anything wrong in inviting someone to join a different group. I was not suggesting for one minute that the person leave this group or stop asking for advise on this site.

I do not know how this has turned in to this.

I have nothing more to say!!

I am trying to save a situation that has been taken out of context I have read it over and over again to see why you got upset and then I realised that you read it wrong.

I feel upset too that you have not understood anything about grief. xx


Sorry your birthday wasn't the best ever Suzanne, though glad that your lovely daughter did her best for you. Hope things will get better for you.

Also a shame that Gwyn won't be posting any more birthday poems but I do understand why and I agree with you Gwyn.

Love Mary xx


Glad that you had some good moments for your birthday, Suzanne, but, a bit like the situation on here a bit, it's tinged with sadness. Hope there are more happy moments than sad ones in the year ahead

Love Wendy xx


Hi, I know nothing about what has gone on in the past, and I don't really want to, to be honest. I am glad this forum is open to men too, after all, you are in a way going through this with your loved one. I know my husband has been with me every step of the way.

I met a girl at a meeting I attended, she was from a cervical cancer group and invited me to like her page on Facebook. I can only say I much prefer this than a Facebook forum as non members of the group would be able to read the comments. I don't think I'd join a fb forum! Ann


I have nothing to say to people about this anymore.

If certain people were not getting at me then they should not have commented on my post!!!

I have been shocked and stunned by some responses but now know where I stand.

To say I nothing about grief is just rude!! You have no idea how much grief i have dealt with. So have no right to judge

Hi everyone

I am just playing catch up on posts so I am late reading what has been going on. I am so sad to read all this. This site and the people on it have been such a support to people like myself even though I don't post often. Why do people form special cliques? Shouldn't we all be there for one another?

Hope everyone is doing as well as they can.
