Home from Boston.

Oh what a week we have had. It was just fantastic to spend time with mam and my sister. Boston is a wonderful city, I was a bit lost on some of the history but the architecture was amazing. The conference was great, we learnt of a new drug which I already knew about and it's benefits. Immunotherapy is making great headway for tripple negative breast cancer. For those of you who don't know there are 3 main different types of breast cancer, ER+, Her- and tripple negative, this basically means what the cancer feeds on to grow, in my case I am Er+ which is estrogen positive, this is why I got my ovaries removed, to reduce the estrogen in my body. I also got to make new friends and also met up with Holley Kitchen who's group the Cancer Lifers I have been following. I have also registered to get some of my tissue sample tested in the U.S. to see if they can offer anything else. It really was just one of the best weeks ever.
