It’s been a year. #FuckCancer

If you don’t know what I am talking about read my post here. I am not dwelling on the past but I am super conscious of my skin. This means I don’t lay in the sun or stand for long periods in the sun. You will always see me with a cap on or with sun screen in my bag! Not to dwell on the past but it really did scare the shit out of me – this is putting it bluntly!

A year on, I am more aware of my body, I am more aware of my soul. Sounds deep but being told that you have advanced skin cancer – it kind of brings you back to reality. You are more aware of people in your life, how you spend your time etc.

Now I sit here typing this post, cancer free and happy. With scars to remind me.

I cannot believe its been a year.

On another note, our family found out that my Cousin Carlos has Hodgkin lymphoma ( it’s a form of cancer). This is family, it hurts. I mean we grew up together, we misbehaved together, we played cricket and broke windows together!

However it’s been caught very early by the sounds of it, he has been through so much as he had a liver transplant 5 years ago. He had his first Chemo session yesterday and we are ready to fight this.

It’s not easy to hear or follow but God only throws obstacles at those who can handle it and Carlos definitely can.

The First miracle was the transplant and now we await Gods miracle again.

Carlos needs all the support he can get, give him a follow on his Facebook group here.
