Hi I have just joined here after a visit to maggies cheltenham centre yesterday. My wife was diagnosed recently with Kidny cancer and is awaiting siurgery which we have now been told may have to be delayed as she had a fall 2 days ago and broke her knee - ironically comming out of the hospital from her pre-op assessment!

    Hi Dave,

    As a regular visitor to Maggie's Cheltenham, I've found great support there from the staff and visitors alike. Even have a couple of new interests now too!

    I hope your wife is recovering from the double blow that she's recently received.

    All the best,

    Keith

    Hello...and welcome,

    It's a relief to hear you have found Maggie's Cheltenham - hopefully it will be a good support for you and your wife both now and in the future. The added trauma, of your wife's fall, sounds a lot for you both to bear.

    Meanwhile, we're here as an additional layer of support, and I encourage other families and friends affected by cancer to get in touch and leave a note of encouragement...

    I've messaged you separately too...

    Warm wishes

    Sue
