So lovely to hear you are doing ok. I had round 13 today and hopefully start a immunotherapy trial in Liverpool next week. What are the reasons for them not wanting to give you radiation,? I am going to take a break after the trial, hopefully the trial will finish at the end of June. Yes, Ruth did pass on your telephone number, are you free for a chat tomorrow?

Hi Kate, I am so pleased that you are keeping well and on the up. I had round 13 today, round 12 was horrid so I took an extra week to recover. What's the reasoning behind the 'no' radiation? Yes Ruth did pass on your number, are you around tomorrow for a chat? Theresa x
