London Marathon … Donations Appreciated – Macmillan Cancer Support

No, I’m not the one running! I can barely walk but my dear friend Michelle Brownlow has been offered a place & is running to support me & Macmillan Cancer Support to raise awareness for Leiomyosarcoma.

We have 6 months to publicise it & raise as much as possible. I will never be able to thank Michelle enough but I know she is doing it out of love & friendship .. I am so very proud of her. She suffers from her own health issues so this makes it doubly special that she would even consider attempting it.

I will update progress as we go along!

Just Giving Linky 🙂 Please Donate xx

She has already done the Race for Life this year 🙂


A Day in the Life of LMS!

Some days are better than others .. I always have the ‘Dragon’ hanging over me but if I feel ok in myself I can pretend it’s not there.

Today has been one of the ‘crap’ days. Constant pain, nausea, diarrhoea & fatigue so dreadful that my eyes won’t stay open to eat at times. So begins the vicious circle of taking extra pain relief & becoming like a zombie, depression sets in & I lose all sense of positivity & fight.

At times like this I am so thankful for the family & friends who stick by me with unswerving support, a kind word, just letting me know I’m in their thoughts etc it really does help.

I will be at the hospital again this week & next .. more tests & procedures, it’s a never-ending battle but one I have to endure just in case a miracle happens! Tomorrow is another day & the journey continues…
