Hi @maryp a great big welcome to our forum, I expect you could have done with our support 45 yrs ago.
Thank you so much for your update, it is lovely to hear.
Treatments have come on leaps and bound since your son’s.
How are you doing and feeling?
My son is just coming up to fifty, everyone will be celebrating his birthday and I will be thinking that I cannot have a son who is half a century old and I think I deserve a medal and a Colin the Caterpillar cake too!!
I look forward to hearing more from you and about you
Take lots of care and please keep posting.


What a lovely story to share @maryp!
