"Kind, caring support during treatment for breast cancer"

About: The Royal Glamorgan Hospital / General Surgery Velindre Hospital / Clinical Oncology

(as the patient),

Found out very suddenly I had HER positive breast cancer in February 2016.

I found the care and treatment from diagnosis to be excellent. ! !

Nothing was too much for all the staff I have come across so far.

I am now undergoing a long road of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, herceptin injections and 5 to 10 years of medication.

But, if this saves my life, it's worth the pain and suffering.

All the staff I have come across so far have been kind, caring and above all, supportive.

Thank you all
