About the loss
Brilliant. I am currently having treatment for oesophageal cancer having had breast cancer last year. I am currently in hospital awaiting tests to see if it has spread to my lungs. So today I was ready to listen to your podcast. It was brilliant, you all have helped me through the last 20 months and I agree you are my friends. So many times through my treatment I have used your advise and know without it I would have had a lot scarier journey. You have helped put all those big cancer words into plain English. Such as Palliative care! Thank you so much look forward to receiving to next podcasts.
Well done ladies! Sensational!
As a non sufferer I have been totally addicted to this amazing podcast. I have laughed, cried, sobbed and reflected. I have checked my breasts for lumps and looked back on my poo for changes. I have been impelled to listen and learn. Any small bit of advice on awareness I will gratefully receive. So a huge and heartfelt thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤️❤️❤️
I am inspired and humbled by your ability to raise the curtain on life’s big conundrum.. death. Love your humanity and humour. Pass the tequila! Lots of love.
