I'm just about to dash off to Clinic at Velindre on the edge of Cardiff but I felt I really must thank the literally 100s of people who have not only congratulated us on the marriage last Tuesday but also given tremendous support in my battle to defeat cancer.
I am ever astonished by the incredible generosity and emotional support of both friends and people whom I have never met.
I do so hope this blog offers some hope and a warm and comforting arm across the shoulder of all who are themselves fighting this pernicious disease.
Thanks for your wonderful support it really counts and if my blog helps just one person be they victim, carer or cared for - then it is worthwhile.
YOU can probably help cancer patients most by talking openly and freely about the disease and when they fail to get the standards of care they deserve then help them to formulate and carry through their reasoned, logical well documented complaint - Nothing improves a system better than a factually presented assessment.
A concise and cogent report WILL help your Oncology Consultant to get the funding he needs!
Never turn a blind eye to poor service or a shoddy hospital - Nothing improves medicine more than rational comment from patients and their friends.
Thank You all for your support, friends, family and strangers alike.
