In the day of modern technology many people are just coming to terms with computers.I think the idea of finally having a UK based forum board for people to ask question and get answers is a great idea.
Im 45 and was diagnosed with stage 3 Malignant Melanoma in June 1995.Following surgery ive been gret ever since.Other than having family and friends around i found a couple of forum sites/chatrooms which is a great way of finding out information about how people react on discovering that they have cancer.Not only that its not restricted to just those that have the disease.Often people in the caring profession,family ,friends and anyone with a genuine interest in the diagnosis and after care of cancer patients can input information.
Ive been involved with Cancer Research Uk for the past 7 years or so,initially with the sunsmart campaign ,but ive also do a radio advert on Classic FM radio,done radio interviews with both Lincs FM and Trent FM.I've also dont newspaper interviews,3 times with my local paper The Grantham Journal and Lincolnshire Echo.My last piece involved wearing full firekit and a pair of pink stilletto shoes....all done to raise money for the cancer research shop where i live.THE ONE AND ONLY TIME IVE EVER CROSS DRESSES...LOL
So if your old enough to work a computer,regardless of age or ability ,get involved with this new site.Its been done for people like us with cancer to ask and generally chew the fat.Moral of the story says if you dont ask questions,you dont get answers.Theres always someone that will have an answer.
Thanks for taking the time to read this,and keep smiling....its only cancer after all
