  • Blog Post: why....

    I am not the kind of person who keeps a blog. I am not the kind of person who freely expresses emotions. I am not the kind of person who shows his feelings easily. With this in mind, I have no idea why I decided to do this, but I hope it will be therapeutic. I am not interested in making it look nice...

  • Blog Post: Sun is shining

    Hooray! It finally feels as if summer is inching its way closer! Ok, so it’s not great today (just got soaked on my lunch break!) but week by week, those “sunny spells” are increasing. I even went to my first barbeque of the year this weekend – thanks to my fellow Macmillan Editor...
  • Blog Post: Clinical Trial

    First time blogging. I was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma about 18 months ago. I have recently started clinical trials. So far I have had only 1 session but have been keeping well. Is anyone else taking part and how are you getting on?
  • Blog Post: It’s finally summer! Here’s how to enjoy the sun safely

    I think most of my friends and colleagues in the office today have enjoyed a weekend of walks, parks, tennis and most importantly, sunshine! And who can blame them? It’s rare we get weather this good in the UK! It took a long time getting here, but it seems summer has finally arrived....
  • Blog Post: PET scan - the wait!

    So I had my PET Scan 2 days ago on my 45th birthday. I can't deny it was the worst birthday I've ever had plus I've got a cold. I'm thoroughly miserable it has to be said. I have read into every detail that has happened subsequently and can only think the worst. Having had the scan...
  • Blog Post: Hello - my ramble into this blog

    I so wish I had come across this site or thought about looking into it years ago. Now I'm here it will be a random stream of thoughts and experiences. I will be 45 on the 5th March - that's this Tuesday. I'm a self employed textile designer - lately it's been going really well....

    Now summer is finally here (for now, at least), it’s important to remember to stay safe in the sun, as sun exposure is a risk factor for skin cancer. Last Thursday, we hosted a web chat on skin cancer with Macmillan Information Nurse Specialist Carol Goodman. Carol answered questions on...
  • Blog Post: Early Day Motion 2362 - Melanoma Patients

    Having lost a very close family friend to malignant melanoma in May 2008, I set up www.factor50.org.uk in memory of him, in an effort to bring attention to this dreadful young person's disease and to raise funds for melanoma research. Without boring everyone with far too much detail, Factor 50...
  • Blog Post: Fit & well as I head towards 2 year anniversary

    Hi everyone, Just wanted to drop a line as I haven't had much time to be on the site recently due to a busy domestic life! I'm coming up to the 2 year anniversary of when the melanoma returned in my lymph nodes (13 years after the primary mole was removed) & I'm very happy to say...
