Together we will beat cancer


Ringing the Bell

Hello all. I hope everyone is doing okay and coping well? I have a question.

I'm currently 3 weeks through my 6 weeks of radiotherapy for a benign tumour. I'm super grateful for the fantastic healthcare and well-being care I've had. It has been a journey much easier than expected having such lovely staff and other patients to support you. Along with family and friends.

I may sound silly for this but I wanted to know when my 6 weeks are finished if I'd be allowed to ring the bell? As my tumour is benign I don't know if it would be the right thing to do. 

Out of respect for others I wanted to ask first. Thank you all in advance. Sending lots of love, positivity and healing to everyone xxx

Of course you can ring the bell think of it as your treatment is finished. Some places don't have a bell and patience are upset by that. 

When I finished chemotherapy i was tempted but I've still got cancer if my cancer is ever cured I'll ring that bell so hard it'll break. 

Good luck with your treatment and best wishes for the future.
