  • Blog Post: Cancer isn't fair, but your boss has to be

    Each year almost 120,000 people of working age are diagnosed with cancer in the UK. In 2012 I was one of those 120,000. I’d been in a new job for six months when I was diagnosed with cancer. On top of coming to terms with the diagnosis, learning about treatment options and side effects, and...

  • Blog Post: A Household of Incurable Diseases

    Things seem calmer in camp ginger on the relationship front. Since I promised to try not to be so snappy and he promised to stop making 'jokes' about me being tired and useless everything seems better. Obviously talking is the key to this grown up lark. Loki (the kitten) went back to the vets...
  • Blog Post: Equal Care

    I am very keen on campaigning for all Cancer patients to receive the same level of care whether they are private or NHS.

  • Blog Post: Murderous Dreams

    Today is my last day at work before I go off for a break and get myself geared up for a slightly less pressured start to radiotherapy. I nearly skipped out of the door but of course I feel awful for going off, even on annual leave in case anyone needs anything. Seriously need to care a bit less about...

    Planning for end of life isn’t easy. The one thing most of us want is the choice to die at home, surrounded by our loved ones and with the care and support we need.
