This is a difficult paragraph... especially the last four lines. I am afraid I am getting all mixed up:confused: . This is terrible
Do they make sense in English?:eek:
Thank you:)


As we see, the sisterhood among the villagers affected by cancer allowed women to overcome the limits of medical information. But also, it presented an opportunity for/to women to share intimate experiences that a cancer information leaflet or an outsider could not grasp. The women emphazised that they might know what it was next in the treatment process but, at the end of the day, they “really don´t know what involves and how really is” what came next. Thus, the women perceived this as no information.

But also, it presented an opportunity for women to share intimate experiences that a cancer information leaflet could not broach or an outsider could not grasp. The women emphazised that they might know what it was next in the treatment process but, at the end of the day, they “really don´t know what it involves" and how really is” what came next. Thus, the women perceived this as not really 'information'.
    I think I've got what you're trying to say here.

    The women pooling their individual experiences know quite a lot about the processes and procedures and can advise the newly-diagnosed, but they find that they don't really know - that the case of X is different ot what they have all individually been through - and that X has a different experience than any of them. Because of this they undervalue their knowledge.
