It is our wedding anniversary today :) Six years ago we wondered if we dare look into the future and this song helped us both through chemo at a scary time.
Nearly everyone has a 'special song' - Feel free to add yours and make this an uplifting playlist for the 'tough days'
Roger Hodgson (ex supertramp) Give Me Love, Give Me Life!
Hugs, G n' J

“ We don’t know how strong we are, until being strong is the only choice we have.” xx
Happy by Pharrell Wiilliams was released when I was going through treatment first time around in 2013/4. It was always on the radio in the car when I was going to and from treatment and never failed to lift the spirits!!!
Happy Anniversary Dreamthief - here's to many more!!
Happy Anniversary to you both!
Happy Anniversary G and J
my somg was a new release when I was diagnosed Nov last year so was played copiously on the radio at the time.
Rita Ora “Anywhere”
its very catchy and it would help stop th tears when I was alone in the car ( worst thinking time). I’d sing top volume and dream of being anywhere else. It also made me plan away trips for end of treatment so something to look forward to.
and the freakiest coincidence was that it played on the radio again whilst I was receiving my last radiotherapy zap! I did cry then as just felt overwhelmed but all good!
Have a good weekend all
Not sure I have a specific song but one that makes me smile through this cr**py mess and seems fitting is "get back up again"
The other song which we have been hearing constantly lately is Jess Glynne, which has become my song for my mum. She always seems to come on when she is with me and is exactly how I feel for her. My amazing brave strong dad passed away the other day after a very short battle with this horrid disease. He was only in his early 60s and was so fit and well. They were married for such a long time, there is just a huge hole we can't fill. It still seems very unfair and am not enjoying 2018 much. Anyway, I'm rambling! These words are very fitting at the moment
P.s happy anniversary x
Rita Ora - Anywhere
Hope my post worked !
I played the music from TROLLS at full blast the day before my MX ! Still had melt down but no one could hear my tears and swearing above the music and me dancing ( like a baby elephant) . I loved the film . For Mother’s day hubby brought me a POPPY CAKE to the hospital . Seems a little a life time ago ! Only this year . I still play this song loud when I’m home alone !!!p
Happy Anniversary xx
