Blog SubTitle

In July 2012, at the age of 38, I was given the devastating news that I had advanced ovarian cancer. This is my blog and the story of my fight to regain my health. I hope to share with you things that I've found helpful along my journey and keep you posted on my progress.

Do More for Cancer

Hi Everybody,

Just a quick note to say that my husband John has written a letter to all the main political party leaders, urging them to set more ambitious targets, to be bolder in tackling the barriers to progress and to give cancer a much higher priority.  You can read John's letter to the Party Leaders here: 

Letter to Party Leaders urging UK Governement to Do More for Cancer

In an attempt to offer constructive suggestions, he has sent them a copy of an article that he has written entitled “Cancer – Where are we going wrong?”, which offers a carer’s perspective on cancer care in the UK and where he feels our management of cancer is sub-optimal and could be improved. You can see an online copy of the article on my website by clicking on the link on the right or you can read the PDF version sent to the Party Leaders here:

Article sent to Party Leaders : Cancer - Where are we going wrong?
