Re: Scared and desperate

Hi Curlysue. Sorry that you’re still waiting. It does seem a very long time to wait. Was it your GP who referred you for the scan? If so could you ask them to chase it? it’s probably easier for them to get information. My partner was referred under the 15 day cancer target. He got the phone call fro...

Re: Never been more afraid in my life

Re: This cruel disease
