    Hi Julia. Well sweetie, we are all rooting for you. I am confident that you will beat this thing. You are still young and that is in your favour. Treatments are certainly no picnic but just take one day at a time. My sister has been coping with Breast Cancer and it is looking very good and she is in her 70's.  Sounds like you are in very good hands and they are on top of things. So many today facing these types of diagnosis. But the survival rates are so much more encouraging now with all the technology and successful treatments Julia. Try to maintain your stress levels at a minimum. Worry can sap our energy and it is really is of no benefit. Trying to keep a positive outlook has a real impact on our healing process. Keep us posted as to how things are progressing. Sending you warm gentle hugs! Maggie xxx

    Hello Julia

    Sorry to hear about all your are dealing with at the moment. I hope you find the strength you need to get well. I don't know how old your children are...but are they old enough to help out more with chores etc?

    Perhaps you could draw up some sort of rota...or go on strike!!

    Joking aside think positive thoughts and make sure you're not overdoing things!

    Good luck with everything my lovely
