I hope so.


I know of course the feeling of searching the internet and reading the forum to find something, anything that might help, as that is all you want to do help.


We were pushing my dad around in a wheel chair, in 2011 and now he can walk with a stick.


Looking back, we would never have believed he would be doing that now.....


I really hope this gives other people hope.


Keep strong x

Wow!!


Yes, thank you for posting.


My Jonathan had his first Gemcap yesterday and it is stories like yours and Laura's that really help.


Long may your Dad stay well.


Kind regards

Hi Laura - wonderful news! As has already been said, you have always been such a pillar of strength to others and Brian's progress a source of great hope to everyone. I can't believe that it's been nearly 3 years since I first came onto the forum - seems like yesterday. We are all forever bound together by our shared experience of this disease and it warms my heart to hear positive stories - so important to everyone battling. Sending my love to you and Bri and to everyone. Although I don't post as I did, I think of everyone often and continually send lots of positive vibes.

With love

Deb

hello everyone. its me again----- a blast from the past!!!Didnt realize how long since i posted, sorry xx

Bri is going on fine. no changes. we see oncologist every 6 mths and they are happy with how he's doing. Cannot believe that its 41/2 years since diagnosis!! and 4 yrs since i first posted.Our good wishes and love go to all of you on this journey, everyone is so differant, try to remain positive and focused we have found it helps. but pretty difficult at times.

I did our Short Mat Bowls Tournament again this year, and due to massive support from 15 other clubs, and one of our younger [21] bowlers having his head shaved during the games, we were able to raise a total ammount of £815.69. so i am happy with that

to any of you that still visit this forum that were around when i was constantly on it,hi and i hope your lives are settled.

wishing all of you strength to cope with this awful disease.

love to everyone

laura xxxxxxxxxx

Hi Laura


Great news about Bri. I do wonder how he is getting on.


Yes, please do keep posting. It gives others hope - it certainly did me and hope is a very positive emotion for both patient and carer.


Lots of love

I am so glad to hear the news, Laura, even though I was not on here when you were more active I have looked through your posts and Bri's story is one which we love to hear about!

Hi Laura,

Im so pleased that Bri is still doing so well! I very rarely come on here anymore but delighted I did today as I too often wonder how Bri is getting on!

Well done on the fund raising, I have done a bit myself, I completed my first 10k in Dublin and also held a coffee morning so between the both I raised £1300! Felt great giving something back for all the help and support dad and my family received with our Hospice. My next 10k is coming up soon and funding is going towards PCUK.

Good to hear from you, take care of yourself,

Love Rachel x

Thanks for popping back in to let us know just how well Bri is doing. It certainly helps spur me (and my family on) through the highs and lows of this thing. I wish you both continued success in the struggle and hope I can follow suit.


Take care both!

Hello everyone, well here I am again, like the proverbial penny. ? Am pleased to say that BRI continues to thrive, we see specialist every 6 months (next one is in may ).

Bri's weight is maintained, an increase at times, the diabetes is still with us but controlled on insulin ( unless he eats too much trifle, etc ) lol.

Steve, delighted to see you are still chasing BRI, well done and keep on keeping on.xx

My love and good wishes to one and all, am sending virtual strength and positivity to everyone. Sorry that this post is long overdue!!.

Have a good Easter all. Love Laura. Xxx

Laura, I was just thinking of you and Brian the other day. Although I never 'met' you in the sense that your active time was before I joined, your Brian still comes to mind when searching for hope in this dreadful cancer - and also for me that you are in my beloved Cornwall where I have farming relatives and have been visiting since I was a child. Take care both of you x
