My name's Sam (Cheeky to my friends), I'm young(ish!), happily married with 2 beautiful kids, a boy and a girl.
I thought life was great - gorgeous kids and hubby, nice house, fantastic mates, starting to get sorted financially, and in I job I was loving (though it could be hard work at times!). Then....
Just after my 36th birthday, I found out that I had breast cancer and my world was turned upside down!
This website is a now a place for me to focus on making sure that some good comes out of this, to prove that you can fight cancer and win, and to provide some support for others going through the same thing.
I've included my blog which covers all the ups and downs of my battle -its a warts and all account which will make you laugh and cry following my journey through the diagnosis, treatment and life after!
You'll also see I've thrown myself into fundraising - making it my mission to raise as much money as I can for Christies, as it is thanks to them that I am still here. And life, by the way, is still great - its took this to make me realise just how happy I actually am.
This is just the beginning. This site will eventually provide support for others living with cancer - somewhere to turn to for positive reminders that life's not all bad.
Live is for living!!!!!!!!!!!
