Team story

[p]We all know someone that has been touched by cancer in one form or other.[/p] [p]Just recently we have had fellow rowers and close family friends affected by it.[/p] [p]So together with my friends we have joined forces with The crew of the Master Glazier, Trinity Tide & a donated boat the Rizla [/p] [p]We are doing a midnight row from Gravesend to Deptford Creek and then doing the same distance again by taking part in the Great River Race. where we will row from Deptford Creek to Ham in Surrey. 50 miles of blood sweat & beear with tears at the finish line.[/p] [p]We are doing this for Pauline Barnes, Lisa Moss, Lyn Ward & the countless others caught up in the firght against cancer.[/p] [p]Help us fight by donating as much or as little as you can.[/p] [p]A few words from the ladies in question.[/p][lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt][b][span=text-decoration: underline;][lt]span style="color: #00ccff;"[gt]From Lisa Moss:[/span][lt]/span[gt][/b][/p] [lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt] There comes a point in your life where you have to fight a battle, whether it’s physical or a mental battle. That day for me was in May 2017, the day that four words shattered my world and my battle began. Hearing those four words [b]You [span=color: #ff0000;]Have Colon Cancer[/span][/b] is something you never want to hear. It’s almost like you are dreaming and waiting for that moment when you wake up and everything’s back to the way it was before, but for me life will never be the same![/p] [lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt] From that day on everything moved very quickly from CT scans, A biopsy, and an operation for a port and chemo in a space of 2 weeks. My family, friends and work colleagues have been amazing and for that I can’t thank them enough.[/p] [lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt] Colon Cancer is a type of Bowel Cancer which is sadly not an early diagnosis to make, which is why I would like to help raise awareness on how quiet and quick this disease spreads. The only symptoms I had was a pain in my side. I stress to you if you have any pain or problems with your bowels get it checked out![/p] [lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt][span=color: #ff0000;]The earlier the better.[/span][/p] [lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt]My journey is far from over and I will fight this until the end. I would like people to help us fight Cancer by donating anything you can to help fund research , new treatment methods and hopefully one day Cure Cancer. Through research I was lucky enough to be tested for a new drug which came back positive and the drug will prolong my life longer.[/p] [lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt] [span=color: #ff0000;]However it costs a lot of money.[/span][/p] [lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt]If you can[/p] [lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt][span=color: #ff0000;]Please help with the battle of cancer by donating what you can![/span][/p] [lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt][/p][lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt][b][span=text-decoration: underline;][lt]span style="color: #00ccff;"[gt]From Lyn Ward:[/span][lt]/span[gt][/b][b] [/b][/p] [lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt]After 16 years since my first diagnosis, I was horrified to be told that I have breast cancer again. I would not have found the cancer this early, if I hadn't gone for yearly mammograms. I have had surgery and will start a course of radiotherapy tomorrow. [/p][lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt]I have been overwhelmed with support from Family, friends, work colleagues and Qld. Health. Thanks heaps to my wonderful Daughter and friends for raising funds, you are amazing.[/p] [lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt][/p] [lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt][b][span=text-decoration: underline;][lt]span style="color: #00ccff;"[gt]From Pauline Barnes:[/span][lt]/span[gt][/b][b] [/b][/p] [lt]p style="text-align: center;"[gt]My journey began last September when I received a recall letter from the Breast Unit. I arranged an appointment to see Mr Ashraf Patel. I have breast cancer. My god. Shock horror so let's get on and deal with it. The positivity and care with which he spoke to me was so reassuring.  [/p] [p][/p][div=text-align: center;]So it began with blood tests, MRI screenings and then an operation date. Off I went to PAH and the lump was gone.[/div][div=text-align: center;]Ashraf was happy and so was I. The care in PAH was fantastic. My lump had to travel to the states to be tested to determine my follow up treatment. So Ashraf said I could go on holiday to India. That was great and I returned to news that I didn't need chemo, just radiotherapy. Off to Addenbrooks Hospital I went every day over Christmas and New Year. I was extremely lucky to have friends who took me and supported me.[/div][p][/p] [p][/p][div=text-align: center;]At Addenbrooks Hospital I met some amazing people and I constantly thought how[/div][div=text-align: center;]lucky I was. I think that time was the most sobering experience for me. [/div][p][/p] [p][/p][div=text-align: center;]So treatment finished, now what??[/div][p][/p] [p][/p][div=text-align: center;]Having been through a whirl wind of emotions and appointments, suddenly nothing. That was a hard time but then Hayley Sweet recommended me to take part in the charities 6 week Mind, Body and[/div][div=text-align: center;]Vitality course; which was brilliant! Upon completing the MBV program, I began[/div][div=text-align: center;]taking part in the charities ‘Can be fit’ exercise class run by the fantastic Elaine.[/div][div=text-align: center;]Just what I needed and I embraced everything. Met great people, shared experiences and everything was so positive. Now I attend the gym sessions with Elaine regularly and also the ‘Fabulous and Beautiful’ pampering sessions the charity offer. In between I have had bone a scan but that's ok, Zometa infusion and regular chats and texts from fantastic people.[/div][div=text-align: center;]My journey is far from over but I feel blessed and thank god for the NHS[/div][div=text-align: center;]screening program! I certainly would not have found it. [/div][div=text-align: center;]                     [/div][div=text-align: center;] [b]Ladies, be sure to keep your appointments ladies [/b][span=font-weight: bold;]When you get called for a mammogram![/span][/div][p]Thanks for visiting our page.
