It reminds me of so many inspirational pics and sayings I've come across on Facebook. I 've often thought I'd like to repost some here but don't know how. I can share on Fb. and can email them to friends but that's all . There are so many excellent ones out there. You have thoughtful daughters.

Hi Sally, Of course I dont mind I am always happy to talk about my 3 beautiful girl they are 21,20 and 17 and all still living at home so they can study and work and I love having it that way.I have bowel cancer[rectal] stage 3 which they tell me with lots of treatment and a permanent colostomy bag is still curable.Do you have children and if you dont mind what cancer do you have and where are you at with your treatments.X

Hi Sally, your children are a great age it can be a busy time how do you manage caring for them when you are feeling unwell or a bit off at times.I am having my treatment done at the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne and everyone has been great. What about yourself? X

Hi Sally,Im not really sure if one hospital is any better than the other I know how great the Peter Mac hospital is just through talk in general about anyone who knows anyone. My own experience with the Alfred has been nothing but good everyone has been so kind,understanding and helpful as well as caring and professional.Kids are wonderful arent they they have the ability to make life go on no matter what,they keep you smiling and busy Im sure huge hugs and wishes X
