Teachers in the UK return to work this week after our summer holiday. For me, a teacher returning to his 23rd 'Start of the year' this year I am reminded that this time a year ago I was having the last of my 6 cycles of FCR. Since then, I've led my school through an OFSTED inspection, travelled to Italy and Australia, returned to playing cricket every week this summer, run the London 10k in under an hour and raised £1000 in the process as well as lived a totally normal life; only the daily antibiotics would give a clue to my illness.
I post this not for any other reason other than to urge people to be positive and see the things you can do and not the things you can't. My doctor is convinced that that positive mindset is aiding me in my situation.
With September also being Blood cancer awareness month in the UK, here's to 'Living Well With CLL'
Best wishes to everyone
