  • Thank you

    Hello all.

    Just wanted to say a massive thankyou to everyone who has helped me over the last couple of days with my enquires (especially Margaret and Fed!)

    Hopefully at the end of it all I won't be diagnosed with cancer, but even if I am I know you will be here with me which is just the best thing I could hope for.

    You have been my friends and made a very embaressing situation much more understandable, you have been great to me, and I cannot thank you enough for how much you have helped me.

    This experience has certainly changed my life, for the better. When I first felt the pain so many bad thoughts were running through my head I thought I was going to die. During those days I realized how much life ment to me, so now that you have enlightened me and showed me that I most probably will survive, I have learnt in this very short time to love life.

    I could not have gone through this without you all. I could have talked to some of my friends at school of course, but they would not of been able to give me detailed advice about the situation. I cannot thankyou enough.

    Hopefully (if you let me), I'll stick around here, based mainly on the board for young people, giving them advice from someone their own age who understands how embaressing it is to go up to your parents and tell them.

    Thanks again. I wish I could thankyou somehow more than just words.

    Thankyou - I cannot emphasize how much you have helped me.

      Hey Mate!
      I echo your sentiment that hopefully you don't have TC. We have a great community hear, and it's great that you are willing to keep being a part of it. TC tends to hit young guys at an age where one would be embarrassed to address (or even acknowledge) the symptoms. It is great that at 16 you were able to handle the situation masterfully. Hats off to you, my friend. Take care and keep us posted. All the best,

        You should be proud of yourself...I wish there was more education and information that could reach young men about this so they could protect themselves.

        I can't wait to hear some great news from you!
