Many people have loyally read this blog over many years, and have continued to be supportive and encouraging as I've moved on after breast cancer. Today was my annual check up and, subject to the results of the mammogram, I am still a NED.
I think I have the best breast team in the world, not least because after these years we can share some good banter as well as discuss serious stuff. Kind of nice when your consultant walks in and says 'Hello Trouble' and refers to the BCN as 'a Monster' all the time with a smile on his face. And equally nice when you can ask questions and express concerns (should they arise) knowing you'll be taken seriously and taken good care of.
The NHS, in its various guises, and despite the things that are not good or not fair or less than ideal, is a truly wonderful thing, and I am very blessed to be a recipient of it.
