I had cancer, then I didn't, now I have it again - my thoughts are my personal words that flow when I log in. They assist me in my first instance in getting my thoughts flowing and down on virtual paper - Secondly to get friends and family in the loop, not so they don't have to ask me any awkward questions just so they are informed enough to know what to say to me and pray for the right things - As a public blog, anyone can read it - hoping it will assist others through their own challenges.

My 2012 Derwent Dambuster 10-mile Challenge
PLEASE DONATE AS MUCH OR AS LITTLE AS YOU CAN - THANK-YOU
In Dec 2009 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Bowel Cancer which had infiltrated a number of lymph nodes. Surgery was performed to remove the cancer and lymph nodes and unfortunately the chemo was stopped after 4 days due to an allergic reaction.
In Oct 2010 secondary metastases were discovered - a single tumour in my liver and cancerous 'hotspots' in my para-aortic lymph nodes and my pelvis. I was told the cancer that had returned was inoperable.
In Jan 2012 the cancer returned to the original bowel cancer site as well as the secondarys.

Within the site there was a link for The 2012 Derwent Dambuster 10-mile Challenge, this is what I have decided to take part in as my challenge whilst raising funds for CCTA:
