Morning @tisme, how are you doing this morning?
I can well understand how scary all of this is for you, have you spoken to Cancer Council at all? We have a program called Cancer Connect, where you can speak to one of our trained volunteers who have had the same or similar cancer and/or treatment and are now well again.
