…and they’ll invent a better fool.
I’m living life because I’m alive (woohoo!) – despite the best efforts of cancer. At the end of October 2005, I was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, at the age of 23.
Since then, I’ve recovered (2008), ‘survived’ (2013), relapsed (2013), had a stem cell transplant (2014) and recovered again (ongoing).
And I’m still here, thanks to amazing medical staff, bacon sandwiches, wonderful friends and family, my fabulous wife Mariacristina, a handy preference for taking things as they come and my superstar donor Tim.
A lot of it’s here, but I’d love to tell you more – I’m a writer and a speaker and love to share my story, so get in touch if we can do some good together.

Oh George (((George))).
For fear of saying something trite, aka darn annoying, I’ll settle for sending some big, soft, germ-free, bug-free, cyberhugs, ok?
Hello George, this is Anne, Christies friend – i stayed with you a few times at Jesus.
anyway Christie wronte to me and sent your website, hope you dont mind that i’ve been reading all about it. anyway its so great that you can write all this down, not many people could be dealing with it all in a better way; you are amazing. Anyway that sucks that you have to go til Friday but even that is an end in sight (i hope). i had to have a hepB injection yesterday and that was bad enough – just goes to show what a WUSS i am.
anyway i hope you dont mind ive been in touch.
Love Anne xxx
PS i was going to putr my website but that would be blatent shameless advertising
I have been absolutely miserable about staying in touch lately. Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. Please believe me though that I, and my family, have kept you in our prayers always. I am in London until next Monday and, though I understand you are undergoing treatment until Friday, I wondered whether there would be even the slightest chance of just saying hello to you at some point for I have not seen you in ages and miss you dearly.
I wish you all the best with your treatment. I am thinking of you.
Good to see you looking so well yesterday complete with pirate headgear and goatee!!! Hope the radiotheraphy still chugging away; will be thinking of you all the way from Africa.
Sorry to hear that this stage is not yet over. Thinking of you and hope that you are still enconsed with your family’s friends and enjoying the food and comfort.
Not much changing here the trip to the UK now seems like eons away, when it wsa so good to meet up with you and family again.
You are always in our thoughts.
Love Melanie xxxxx
Big hugs from the birthday girl!
