My name is Derek. I am 44 and live with my wife & 2 dogs in Lanarkshire.

Patient voices Cycle Two of my Treatment
I've been enjoying several days at home after the end of Cycle 2 of my treatment. I'm due back into hospital in a few days time to begin Cycle 3 chemotherapy. Whilst the care I have been receiving is excellent, it is so good to get back home.

Patient voices Into my fourth and last cycle of treatment
I'm now well and truly into my fourth and last cycle of chemotherapy. I have felt stronger at the start of each cycle which I put down to the excellent care I am receiving and the, fortunately for me, positive response my body has to that care.
