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 life.....in 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.
