🎀Another thread about #cancer and a #nodealbrexit🎀
I remember when I was recalled after my mammogram, and told I had #breastcancer
Your whole world stops
Right there.
Your plans, your future, your hopes, your dreams.
Stopped in a heartbeat.
And replaced by cold fear
You go away, and you try to remember what you were told, about the treatment, what will happen, what will happen after wards, and all you struggle to do is get through the next breath ... and the next... because #CANCER is such a BIG word that it is crushing you
And you look into your partner's face, and he (she) is white, and frightened. And you phone your son/daughter, and there is THAT SILENCE for a few seconds before they speak.
That is what #cancer does: it destroys your body, & your family.
None of you walk on the same ground as BC
So, when I read this: bbc.co.uk/news/uk-474627… Then I read this & I see that as a result of #Brexit , thousands won't get the treatment I had. When I get a letter (as I did today) from @MattHancock 's dept telling me the importation of isotopes 'will not be materially affected'
'by withdrawing from #Euratom' ... I KNOW the government are lying: there are no organisations who can supply the short-life diagnostic isotopes, and no licenses given to companies to handle nuclear materials reedsmith.com/en/perspective… ....

#stopbrexit #cancers
I am devastated
I was treated within 10 days of my diagnosis (see carolhedges.blogspot.com/2017/12/the-bi…)
I didn't realise HOW lucky I was
YOU, whether you voted #remain or #leave won't probably have that luck.
Nor will I ~ALL #cancer sufferers live in the shadow of it coming back
🎀Macmillan Cancer Support's short term predictions have shown that more than a thousand people will be diagnosed with cancer everyday in the UK .🎀
Only now they won't ~ thanks to #Brexit
If we want to STOP CANCER, we must STOP BREXIT
It's as 'simples' as that
(Pz share this x)
