[CANCER] Treatment in the Midst of #COVID19

Some days I feel lucky - I am receiving excellent treatment on the NHS (and having had to pay for treatment in New Zealand, it made me extra grateful), and, so far as we know, there's no progression at the moment, so I'm not having to have any of the super-high risk treatments such as surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy.
