Judy, I am sure that Marion and others will be in Chicago for a conference later this year and no doubt she will be along at some point later on with details and info etc.

Best wishes,

Thanks for that Angela. Hope all is well with you.

I thought that you would end up doing it again this year Lainy! And you know that I would so enjoy all of that food, no wonder Phil ate 3, I would as well! Sounds like you all had a great time. Things as busy as ever over here with everything and I have to leave to go to Glasgow in a few hours on an airport run. Cousins are going on holiday and I said I would take them, they need to be at the airport for 4am, grrrrrr!!!!! 5 hour round trip in the middle of the night not my idea of fun...... Ha!

Hope you have a good time this weekend as well Randi!

Congrats on finishing your treatments Lisa, great stuff! I hope that the weather is good over your way and that you can get outside and enjoy the cycling asap!

You're welcome Willow. It was a good day and I learned a lot from the presentations, looking forward to the next one!

I agree re the obesity as a risk factor also. At the conference I was at the other week, obesity was mentioned many times as a contributing factor towards many of the cancers that were being discussed, CC, HCC, pancreatic cancer etc with the biggest single contributing factor towards HCC in Scotland being alcohol abuse.

Hi Catherine,

Sorry, there doesn't seem to be any slides for the presentations that were done at the conference. If they turn up anytime I will post a link to them here on the site.

Best wishes,


Thanks for that Angela, was good to meet you and Juan as well last week. I spoke a bit with Lynsey after the morning session and hopefully much will come from that over time. Thanks for passing the link to him as well.

Glad to hear that the SIRT talk was valuable but only 35 people going to get access to it over the next 2 years, that is not good at all!!! Hopefully that will change quickly as it gets rolled out more and I will keep an eye on that as well.

Please try and get some rest and get your energy back up if you can and I look forward to hearing from you more.

Best wishes,


Hi Angela,

I don't know if this available here in Scotland yet or not. My best suggestion would be to speak with your gp or oncologist about this to see what they say. I'll try and find out more if I can and get back to you on this asap.

My best to you and Juan,
