Seeing how poor the cancer support sector really was, being so disjointed and not really addressing any practical issues, I decided to talk out about it to see if I was the only one who felt that way. I wasn’t, and very quickly friends of mine had started me a website to help spread the word.
This site is now the most popular cancer blog in the UK, and I am frequently invited to speak around the world about my experiences. I can now use my influence to change things for everyone affected by cancer, and I have been able to start a unique charity SimPal that gives free phones and sim cards to anyone affected by cancer. The only charity of it’s kind in the world.
The rest of my life is dedicated to helping others across all cancers and around the globe. Yes this terrible disease has taken so much from me, but has shown me positive experiences I could have only imagined before. Cancer certainly took my old life, and I’m still learning to live in this extra time I have been given!”
