My Ovacome

Any other ladies here live in London?

Im keen to meet other women who are also in the same boat. I don't know anyone else who has had ovarian cancer. I would love to regularly meet up with any woman who would like to meet . Im the only person in my group of friends who has cancer and I love them but they often don't know what to say as they know less about it than me, and i am still trying to learn as much as i can.

If you fancy a get together , coffee, walk in the park , would be lovely...

Im based in London.

Xx

That's really useful to know. I'm moving to near Purley. My moment of madness is I'm moving in with my partner. I've put it on hold for too long and he has been my rock. Up to my neck in boxes as I speak. With this diagnosis I thought I shouldn't make the move but I've decided not p put my life on hold any more. I can keep my treatment at southend. I'm going to work less as a supply teacher and leave my manage pressures behind. I'm going to live just like you x

Sounds like a plan. I'm moving to south Godstone. Another member has said the same so we could be a threesome x

The Purley support group would be a good mid-point for you both. We have a great and lively group that meets on the second Wednesday of every month

Hi,

I live in Kent about 20 mins on a train from London and if you look at Nicky100 there are quite a lot of ladies that replied to a face to face meeting,some in the London area.

Just getting the last bits of Christmas and New Year packed away and would love to meet up with some of you,

I've just googled wisley. I could drive there but I should be at work. I've got to work to easter commuting back to essex. Great! I am upset at leaving but over the moon to be working a lot less soon. I've found the return to work too tough. Count me in for future ones though x

Thanks Adele! I'm having my staging/debulking surgery on Wednesday, the 11th. If I'm well enough, I might try to attend the meeting on the 25th Jan. I suspect that the 8 March is more realistic.

Hi Everyone in London, I am aware of 3 support groups in London - In Purley at the South East Cancer Help Centre on the second Wednesday of every month; - in Hammersmith at the Maggie's Centre on the first Wednesday of every month and in Barnet. They are all listed on the Ovacome website. I will go and find the link and post it here.
