Help...Any Way I Can

I think anyone with any experience of Cancer and I don't just mean those of us who have suffered with it, are of the same opinion - I don't want anyone else to have to go though this. 

Having met many people that are living with or have survived Cancer I have found that one thing seems to be true of all of them - myself included - they want to help, any way possible to stop this disease.

Throughout my treatment and now it has ended I have tried to provide support to others by being completely honest in this Blog about my experiences. I hope that these musings have helped other people, being so honest and in some cases making fun of the situation has certainly been invaluable to me, like a form of therapy.  As I get stronger I find myself wanting to do more and more - studies - documentaries - support to charities and even starting to write a book about my experiences over the past 3 years dealing with both being a Widow and my own Cancer journey.

I have certainly met the most amazing and generous people because of this journey I am on and feel my life is all the richer for that, I have also learnt to go with the flow, which I as someone who likes to be in control of their own destiny found very hard.  Facing your mortality makes you realise that people are perfectly imperfect and I for one would not have it any other way, life would be very dull otherwise.

So, how do I help?...the answer - any way I can.

I still feel that I am lucky and very blessed - a friend recently asked me if I felt I have been dealt a raw deal by some ways yes, but I'm not going to sit and piss and moan about it - people deal with a lot worse than I have been through every second of every day, and so far what has not killed me has only made me stronger.


  1. I think telling your story is helpful. You've been through what is many people's greatest fear, and the fact that you are still here, still felling lucky and blessed - I think it gives people a lot of hope.

    You're an inspiration, whether you think so or not! Keep kicking butt and taking names!

  2. Nice one Zoe. You sound stronger. May be up days and down......but soon there will be more of the

    Love me(N)

  3. Sharing and honesty helps, and this blog is a wide-open opportunity for making connection, which is probably the biggest help of all. Keep up the great work – keep sharing, connecting and telling your story. :)

  4. You're very strong and it shows. Thank you for what you're doing. Keep up the good spirit! I'm sure life has a lot of good surprises in store for you :)
