Standing up to Cancer… #Sarcoma

20140409-161349.jpg
It’s been 13 days since I had the surgery on my lungs. Whilst I am in a little pain, I am doing really well and am pleased with my progress.

My wonderful surgeon has just called me to confirm that they have analysed the tumour that was removed and……the cancer cells were completely destroyed. This is fantastic news and means that the chemo did a brilliant job!

I still have one very small tumour on my left lung and I have decided to continue with the next operation to remove it. It’s more psychological but I do not want to leave a single tumour in my body that could come back to life. So on that note, I will be back in the suite at Broadgreen on Friday!

Thinking of friends
Whilst I have had success with my cancer treatment, not everyone has been that lucky. There are a few people who are having it rough and I just want to say don’t give up! There are lots of treatments available and sometimes you have to try a few to find the one that suits you.

Take care and I’ll update soon xx

    Fantastic News ! the highs and lows, you have faced over the last two years, I am sure have been unbearable, yet you have come through it all, with strength, courage and above all conviction ! The fortitude you have displayed, always wearing a smile, when sometimes at your lowest ebb, cannot have been easy. Your a star Emma ! The poem below is taken from Triumph by Rudyard Kipling I think one would have to travel a long way to find someone it befits more than yourself ! May God Bless and keep you always ! Forever in our prayer’s

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

    Kind Regards Mike & Audrey xx
