12 Years

I always get a bit recollectional (I don’t care if it’s not a word, I’m using it), particularly on 15th November.

12 years ago I was told I had Leukemia (still struggle to spell that!) and the following 3 + 1/2 years wasn’t the avarge life of a 16-19 year old with trips in and out of hospital etc.

But that’s all over and done with now, 8 years since chemo I think now, so that’s all good!

That’s about it really, just almost want to mark the occasion for some reason.

Fuck You Cancer! (I know technically it wasn’t cancer, but Fuck You Leukemia just doesn’t seem as catchy)

That phrase reminded me of this clip from the brilliant Adam Hills

  1. Great stuff, well done!

    My Mum and Dad (by sheer coincidence, they haven’t lived together since 1986) were both diagnosed with cancer in 2012.

    My Dad had throat cancer and passed away this year in March.

    My Mother had breast cancer and responded well to the treatments, and so far so good.

    An old friend of mine called Jeni, had cancer aged 15.

    She’s now 33 (like me) and wrote a book about it.

    It’s called ‘The Image of Survival’ and I can wholeheartedly recommend it as an amazing read.

    Anyway, good luck to you. Not even sure how I ended up on your blog but something to do with Ents24.
