Gosh where do you start when you've got a 30 year life story and a little window to summarise in? Everyone has a story but I guess our most relevant to this forum is the chapter of our story that we never visualised us experiencing our diagnosis.
Many people hear the "C" word and without knowing which of the vast range of this disease that we have been struck with, we join them in their fear of a death sentence. Fearing the worst certainly hit me hard when I had finally got to a point in my life where I felt I had direction I had purpose and I was happy.
I am determined that even though things are on a halt right now, I am going to keep my soldier boots laced up and march right back into that life I had-gonna be far from easy but with the people I've come to have in my life and the legacy that my mum has left installed inside of me, I know I owe it to myself and all that love and care for me to fight on.
I have started a blog: www.thefightofourlives.wordpress.com it is about my journey but it's purpose is also to reach out to others on their own journey. If I can make just one person smile through this then I've made a difference and I'll be a very happy girl :)
