Nichola,over the years. (a frequent flyer)......well done to the beautiful staff at Goldcoast Hospital, I have always been looked after so well over the years, and the oncology day ward, what ladies to do that job, or men.  I see alot every week, and makes us realise, how important every day in life is. To my IBD nurse, Fiona, an angel!!! IBD nurses do a wonderful job, liasing with the doctors and patients. and Sherryll Waye, my stoma nurse of many years, what a lady!!! too. John Edwards, my Gastro, Michael Von Papin, thankyou for saving my life literally in 2012. These two men are not only doctors, they have the most wonderful hearts and really care about their patients. It really is important to have  a team of professionals in life.  Blueceare, Paul Matsukis, Deborah Calleja, my friend and Osteopath.
