Just have to tell you that I was reading the local paper last night and was very sad to see the death of a lady called Hilary.
When I went for my first session of chemo in August 2007 Hilary was sat in the chair across from me and we spoke and I said to her "I see you haven't lost your hair then" and she said that she was wearing a wig. I was really shocked because it just didn't look like one. I saw her a few times after that and then when we had both finished our treatment I used to bump into her in various places - usually Tesco.
Unfortunately she died last week. I know that she had quite a rare form of cancer and I don't think many people had survived it longer than 3 years but it is still sad news. She was only 61.
