Still winning the battle

I've just completed cycle 17 of Azacitidine and my haematologist is happy with my blood results and my condition is still stable, long may it be so.

I have been invited to join a focus group with three other chemo patients, representatives from nursing staff, pharmacy and aseptic departments to discuss how patient care and support can be improved.

A great step forward I think and a positive move on behalf of the hospital.

The first meeting is on 19th of April.

Watch this space for updates

Looking forward to reading your updates Anthony! This is a really positive step forward, we hope you continue to stay stable and enjoy being part of the focus group! I am sure you will share some excellent ideas and help the hospital shape the way they support and care for all patients. Take care Lizzie
