…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.

Morning George and happy birthday. Gutted at yet another exit on penalties. Just didn’t take our chances. Watched it at the British Club here – the High Commissioner was there and we all stood for the National Anthem at the start, something my Dad always made us do.
Heading for UK mid-week. Seems like timing may not work for you at Blackberry when we are there but you know you are always welcome.
Keep up the fight.
Lots of love,
Penblwydd Hapus George. Much love today, as always, I hope that you manage to get out and enjoy some of the sunshine.
Happy Birthday George!
Love You Loads!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY George!
Hope you have a wonderful day with loads of visitors!
See you again soon – so good to see you last week.
Lots of love, Ellie xxx

Good to talk to you – sounds like you are having a pretty good party. Soooooo glad my dear daughter could make it to one birthday today, even if it wasn’t mine (sob sob). Hope you got some worthwhile prezzies . . .
I’ve got duck legs and a spotted dick.
Must be my age . . .
Know only saw you a few hours ago, but wishing you lots of birthday wishes. We kept a secret too – hope you’re enjoying the party! See you soon.
Lots of love

Some very late birthday wishes from the Haslemere Rapps – imagine you’ll read them tomorrow now. We spoke of you much earlier in the day and also thought of Lucy on her run in all this heat, but am only hitting the keys as I head for bed.
Hope had 4 sets of tennis in a Club match this morning and was roasted, so I guess it was tough for Lucy too.
Anyway, love from all of us here and see you soon.
