Topic: Hello from Barcelona

Guess what:  Pauline and I are together at the World Conference of Gastrointestinal Cancer.  Have to pinch myself again.   What a joy she is.  We have lots to share with you.

How exciting is that!!!  Have some fun too. We will be waiting for the report with bells on. One of the most wonderful feelings in this world is to meet some one from our Club.

Re: Hello from Barcelona

So, here I am struggling to converse with this physician from France.  He is trying to tell me something and I am trying for him to understand what I think he had said.  Pauline simply leaned over and continued the conversation in fluent French but, that wasn't it.  She spoke in Italian with the next physician.  I think that she is keeping something from us:  I wonder how many more languages she speaks.  I am looking forward to tomorrow.  I wonder what she will come up with next.
Hugs to everyone

Re: Hello from Barcelona

Lisa, of course.  I hope that you have a chance to enjoy the summer especially, since your scan came out so positive.
Pauline and I have spoken with physicians from all over the world and, all of them have welcomed us, encouraged us, and have taken our brochures.  A more detailed report will follow.
Accross from the conference center is a large square with several restaurants.  And lo and behold....we have noticed many of our wristbands being worn.  There a very few hand-outs from other exhibitors therefor, making our bracelets quite popular. It warms my heart to think of a young person in Bolivia being connected with all of us in this special way. A physician from that country was telling us about the high incidence of CC patients who mainly, are in teens. 
Lots of conversations about all of you between Pauline and I.
Greetings from almost too hot  for comfort, Barcelona.

Re: Hello from Barcelona

Greetings and warmest wishes to you both - our goodwill ambassadors - spreading the word about CC in important places! What a good feeling to know that more and more people are learning about CC - especially Doctors, who are in a position to diagnose earlier, and maybe help some person with CC in their battle.


Love - Joyce

Re: Hello from Barcelona

Marion and Pauline,

I lived in Barcelona for a year so I really hope you enjoyed it and that the Catalans treated you well.

I was curious about the Bolivian doctor reporting a higher incidence of cc in young patients, a quick search turned up this ancient article:

And it is no surprise to me that our bracelets are the latest fashion!
