There is nobody who likes to look at the world through ‘rose tinted’ glasses more than me! But at times that view must be tempered with a cold dose of reality.

It has been an incredible few weeks for me, with my writing work. I have won an award, and started writing for‘Beauty Despite Cancer’ But more importantly, this blog has been shared so much, via social media, recently.

I feel extremely happy that my vision of reaching significant numbers of people affected by cancer, is finally starting to happen, and we are now being listened to by some very important Health Professionals. I have personally, invested a lot of time into this blog, because I believe that there is a need for an independent platform, like this. I am aware that there are a lot of people in the cancer community who are feeling isolated and don’t know where to turn.
