Hey Pepes,

Any of you who have seen me post over the last year will probably know I took a change in career direction to be a nail tech after a major op last year to remove a melignant lump I had sitting around in my tummy (I call this affectionately 'The melon'), well after 6 months of nasty treatment I had had two scans and blood tests which were all clear so I had one of those 'just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water' moments and thought all was clear... I had my 3rd scan today and MAJOR PANTS it has grown another 'melon' over on the other side now, the same size etc etc blah blah so looks like another major op which takes yet another year out of my life and bang goes any plans we had for kiddies! who knows I may decide after this one to be an astronaut or something!! Why is life so chuffin hard! I am still smiling though, I shall continue with my 'it's not happening' way of dealing with this (yes even when they operated I was still in denial).. So all of you who get the chance go and do the Cancer Research race for life so I might get a decent bed and some nice drugs! hee hee. :D J xx
Oh no :( so the monkey melon is not finished with you yet? positive vibes that the new round of treatement is your last!

I am running in the reading race for assured that I'll raise as much cash as I can!...hope you get some fab drugs and a comfy bed with a cosy duvet :)

Hi, I am so so sorry to hear of this sad news, isn't life a pig and always strikes when you least need these things hey. I was tempted to do the race for life as I have been amongst many whom have suffered, however it was not until I read this post that i became definate and have decided I will go forth and run that race and get some dosh together, race my little legs off, because lets face it what a worthy cause.

I am sending all my very best wishes to you packed full of wonderful vibes and with the hope that things go absolutly wonderful for you in the coming months, keep your chin up girl and think positivley, i will be thinking of you and keep great thoughts in mind constantly for you.

All the very best

Oh JoJo ... what a bummer!

We're all cheering for you.

What a woman and what an atitude!! You're inspirational.

Let's hope this time you beat the bastard!!

Thinking of you.
I'm so sorry to hear your news, just to let you no that i support the race for life 100%. I ran last year, me and my 6 year old daughter are doing it again this year, what an event. Be strong, our thoughts are with you.
Thank you so much guys, it's definitely a great help when you have peoples support and best wishes, I'm a great believer in positive energy so everyone send their positive vibes my way! Good to hear some of you take part in the Race for Life too, the next opportunity I get I will be out there again doing the race (in my case walking slowly at the back!). Hopefully this time I am more prepared for the op and know what to expect a bit more than last time and now know hospitals are not like Casualty and the doctors rarely make 'eyes' at you! (dammit) :lol: I'm lucky to have such a wonderful partner, when I told him the chances of kids are now long gone he hugged me and said 'O well, we can always buy one on the internet from China'! good job we share the same sense of humour! Again thank you all. J xx
