Great way to spend a week

How do you spend the anniversary of completing chemotherapy? I chose to take on Iceland.

13th July 2016 4 years since I finished R-CVP and 2 years almost to the day that I completed my 2 year maintenance.... So what better way to celebrate than to push myself to the limit on a charity hike in Iceland!..I was so worried I would not manage it, or even worse get ill, several times in my head I nearly backed out...and I think I drove our trek leader mad in the preceding days asking question after question, looking for reassurance.  But I am proud to say I did it! And actually enjoyed every minute!  We face glaciers that slipped under foot and never seemed to end, a storm with 100k winds that lasts for 15 hours and took out 3 tents...and worse.. A hostel full of very wet hikers..Lol  But it was the best way to spend my anniversary and better still raise £510 in the process!

4 years ago I wondered where I would be now.....today I can say I was standing on the top of a mountain
