Hi Everyone ,
I was diagnosed with CLL in May this year - 52 yrs young, physically fit and healthy female. To say it was a shock is a massive understatement. I've swung between anger and acceptance and a million other emotions in that time. This site has been a rock for me and I'd like to thank everyone who shares their information and stories. When you know you're not alone it makes it that little bit easier to cope.
Anyway, getting back to my subject headline above - my local town had their Relay For life fundraising walk over this weekend. My husband and I participated last year ( I lost my father to CLL in 2006). But this year it was even more personal to me. I'm so proud to be able to say that my super supportive husband , daughters and two very young grandsons participated this year with me. My husband and I walked 42kms in just over 12 hours. I'm absolutely exhausted at the moment and I don't know what tomorrow will bring but at the same time just bursting with pride that I was able to do this. My husband was with me every step of the way.
Thanks for listening- and health and happiness to all 😊
