Sarcoma Awareness Week #SAW2017 #sarcoma

It’s here again already, Sarcoma Awareness Week and there’s activities going on all around the UK to raise awareness.

The Merseyside and Cheshire support group raised money and awareness at The Royal Liverpool hospital yesterday. They also spoke to people who had sarcoma and wasn’t aware of our support group. Well done to everyone who took part.

The big picnic

Sarcoma UK’s campaign this year is to host a picnic to raise awareness and funds. There’s picnics being held from Lands End to Belfast. My sister and I are hosting one too so we will be sure to share the pictures.


I’ve been sat here tonight with Chlo who has asked me lots of questions about my scar. Will I get better? Will my scar go? Can she touch it? This quickly evolved to ‘can you show me pictures of you in hospital with the machines, with me on your knee…’ she’s a funny and inquisitive soul. So we went on a journey of almost five years which has been horrendous and amazing at the same time. I’ve found new friends, which is amazing, and I’ve lost friends to the big C during this time. It’s been 4.5 years since I was diagnosed, and what started as a diary and info page to keep people updated, has turned into a blog of trying to raise awareness and support others. Here’s to another happy but healthy 4.5 years (and more!)
