Yipeee, after a few weeks of lobbying for this new cancer discussion board we finally have it. I am so pleased :)
Welcome to anyone who has been diagnosed with either Primary Peritoneal Cancer (PPC) or Secondary Peritoneal Cancer. It isn't the most ideal forum to meet new people and forge friends, but we have all been diagnosed with a realitively rare and in-curable cancer and information about it is very scarce and hard to find.
I have PPC and have been posting on the Ovarian boards as my chemotherapy treatment plan is identical to OVCA. However, I don't have OVCA as my ovaries are healthy.
I won't go into a long story about me in this particular message but I will say it is great to have our own messaging boards where we can come for help, support and advice about our rare and seemly un-heard of cancer. I have already made a lot of lovely friends on the ovca boards and hope to continue to talk to them and make new friends too.
Please get the message across to other people you may know who have PPC or secondary Peritoneal cancer and encourage them to post here. I understand that it will run on a trial basis so the administrators can gauge how popular it is before they let it run permantly. So therefore, please use it.
Lots of love Tina xxxxxxx
