I am also new to this site and am just trying to negotiate my way around.
I notice your post was written quite a few months ago, and this response is really late.
Just want to let you know I am thinking of you and I hope all is going well with your journey. If you underwent the chemo, I hope you had a positive result.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
