Thank You


Recommended Posts

I have at last plucked up courage to join this board. I was prompted to do so after reading the wonderful, brave and uplifting posts I have read recently. I wanted to wish everyone special blessings for Christmas, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

My dearest and very brave husband David (of almost fourty years,) was diagnosed with nsclc in July of this year. He has had 6 sessions of chemo ,is being given a break for Christmas and will probably go on Iressa in January.

We feel so grateful that he is feeling well at the moment and that we will be able to enjoy Christmas together. Unfortunately our daughters and their families couldn't join us this Christmas, one is in Korea on military service and the other in Michigan, it is hard to have them so far away at this time.

Anyway I just wanted to say Hi! and I will probably be back asking advice soon. Thank you for the help I have gleaned from all your posts already. Love to you all, Paddy
