‎3 years since the doctors told me I had an incurable cancer.

3 years since I was told the average survival rate for my cancer was 8 - 18 months.

Ha ha ha I tricked you all - I am still here and feeling really well and free from chemo (at the moment) I am looking forward to another 3 years living and managing my illness.

I never thought I wouldstill be here at this time. I am very lucky. Its not until you are given a diagnosis like that you really really take stock and look at your life and appreciate all of the little things.

Its weird but I am happy and I love and enjoy being with my friend and family. I notice little things like the different colours of the tree in the autumn, enjoywatching the clouds in the sky.

So I am really hoping I get another 3 years to continue living my life with my lovely friends and family
