…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.

Thought of you this evening because I remember finding out one year ago today (5th Nov) that you were sick. Its great to see you still keep your blog going and that you’re staying so positive and brave. love and best wishes
A whole year gone … whoosh. Scary stuff.
However, it bodes well for the rest of the treatment speeding past (fingers crossed)
Much love, as always. And some virtual antibiotics with the hugs too, since I’m sure I must be radiating them at the moment.
miss you George. Sending big hug

It’s great to hear your wonderful news, and very strange to think of it being a whole year. I’m so pleased that you’re on track.
Lit Rev news: Robert has abandoned us… Bad Sex Awards coming up…
Hope to see you soon,
I can’t believe it is a year since we all heard of your illness. It is amazing how things have progress in 12 months. It was good to see you at the Autumn Drinks the other friday. Must fly as I have to pack my bags as I’m off tomorrow morning to see my new niece and my nephew who live in Dublin. Take care, see you soon
