Re: now what

Hi tisme,


Try not to worry so much.  I know that’s an easy thing to say, but it won’t help you at all.   You’ve done a good thing by reaching out to this site for help as there are people here who can offer valuable advice. 

What stage is your cancer at?  I don’t know much about breast cancer, but I do know, if it’s in the early stages then there’s a very high survival rate.  


I’m not sure if there’s any financial assistance available for you as I haven’t looked into it at all, but maybe that’s something you can ask your GP about?


Best of luck with everything.
