Another step forward mate. Good news.


This. 100% this. 
 

It’s far too easy to get swamped by everything and it drag you down further. 
 

Celebrate each step forward even if it only appears tiny as it’ll massively help both your mental health and resolve for each of you.

Wow!

 

 

A new cancer treatment can wipe out tumours in terminally ill head and neck cancer patients, scientists have discovered.

 

In a landmark trial, a cocktail of immunotherapy medications harnessed patients’ immune systems to kill their own cancer cells and prompted “a positive trend in survival”, according to researchers at the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR), London, and the Royal Marsden NHS foundation trust.

 

One patient, who was expected to die four years ago, told the Guardian of the “amazing” moment nurses called him weeks after he joined the study to say his tumour had “completely disappeared”. The 77-year-old grandfather is now cancer-free and spent last week on a cruise with his wife.

I think that new treatments like you mentioned are more vital than ever now, given how poor the screening (and treatment for that matter) has become since the NHS reaction to Covid. Cheers, Section, that's very welcome news.

Her Indoor's great niece is 18 today. She's had a growth on her neck recently and this morning she had a blood test and tomorrow it's the biopsy. Cracking lass she is so everyone's bricking it. Should have the results next week.

 

Fingers and everything crossed.

Results took longer than expected but she's gonna be fine!

Sad news mate. People always say 'no age' when someone passes, but 21 really isn't.

There's a girl in Skem who's parents took her to hospital with stomach pains on the 4th of October.

She was diagnosed as having a very aggressive cancer, so aggressive that the Dr's made the decision not to treat her with Chemo.

She died on November 1st aged just 11.

Heartbreaking.
