I’ve not been since I joined this site I want to thank all who have been in touch to check on me. It truly is a huge help. “I believe that now is the best time to let you know the events of the past week.. “There’s no simple method to express this, and it’s actually hard to feel like writing it but here’s the thing. In the spring of this year, I received a diagnosis of breast cancer. Then just a few weeks ago I was told the shocking information that the cancer had progressed to other parts in my body. “I’m currently in regular chemotherapy sessions, and I am trying to fight as hard as I can. I know this could be shocking to read about on social media but it isn’t the intention.
“But the week before, it was reported online that I’d been treated in a hospital. I believe this is the right moment to inform people about the situation which is probably the most effective method I’ve thought of to do this. “My amazing mother family, close friends and relatives are supporting me through this and I would like to express my gratitude to the fantastic NHS nurses and doctors who have proven in their role as heroes. I’m doing my best to remain optimistic and will keep you informed here about how I’m faring. “In the meantime, I hope that you’ll be able to understand and accept my request for privacy in this time of grief. I am sending you all my gratitude ….xx”
