Chocolate and sweets have been discovered around town with notes saying the person wants to celebrate being clear of cancer.

One person found a box of Dairy Milk at a bus stop in Seaside, with a touching note that said, “Thank you for finding me. Please enjoy these chocolates/sweets and celebrate with me being all clear from cancer.

“I was on chemo it was called R-CHOP 21, so I am going to put out 21 chocolates/sweets so I can share my happiness with you.

“Feel free to share it on Facebook. From a cancer survivor.”

According to Cancer research, R-CHOP is a chemotherapy drug combination which includes rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin hydrochloride, vincristine (which used to be called Oncovin), and prednisolone. The drugs destroy quickly-developing cancer cells.
