  • 1 year cancer free! 

    Today is June 30th 2016 which means I’m celebrating 1 year cancer free! I can’t actually believe it, still doesn’t seem real. 1 year ago I heard those words “you’re scan is clear.. You’re in remission” Literally the best day of my life although this past year I’ve struggled with a lot physically and mentally I couldn’t be more thankful and happy to have hit this milestone. There are so many dates and anniversaries that come with a cancer diagnosis but I think this date will forever remind me of my journey.

    Cancer free

    It isn’t easy living as a survivor, always thinking in the back of my mind that it could come back at any moment. Whenever I feel an irregular ache or pain my mind tries toassume the worst but I know with time it will get easier. I have learnt so much about myself during my cancer journey. The one thing I have learnt that I constantly live by is looking at life in a totally different perspective. I appreciate the little things a lot more than before, I have also learnt to stay strong at even the weakest of times.

     I think cancer has changed me a lot as a person as I now think of my life and future differently. If I want to do something I don’t really think twice as I believe that life is too short. No matter what age you’re at, no matter how healthy you are, you never know or when an illness can strike. Please don’t ever take your life for granted. 

    Thank you to every single person who supported me throughout treatment and continue to do so, I am so lucky to have you in my life and I wouldn’t have made it this far without you.

    The charity Bloodwise asked me to write a blog for them about being 1 year cancer free and how I’ll be making a difference as an Ambassador for them, if you would like to have a read you can here which is why this post is short.. Sorry!

    1 year down, the rest of my life to go! I GOT THIS!
