Hi I'm Christiana. I was diagnosed with T cell lymphoblastic lymphoma, stage 4b in 2013. My treatment protocol has been ukall12. After 6 months inpatient treatment then and a donor stem cell transplant I'm doing well, being monitored frequently but all's good. I've been writing a blog this year diarying my experiences: Christianasaberton@wordpress.com

Hi Christiana, I have T cell Lymphositic Leukaemia, thankfully I only spent two separate weeks as an inpatient the rest of the time was treated as an out patient for 18 weeks, now in remission which I hope to last for a long time. I kept a diary of my visits etc, I suppose I could transpose them into a blog too. It keeps me focussed and sane haha. Long may we survive, all the best.

That's really brilliant news.. we love that word 'remission' . My mantra is to live life well and not sweat the small stuff (easier said than done in this busy world!).

There are lots of reasons for and benefits to writing, but beware, I also found it very difficult at times. I took some time working it all out before I started writing as I wanted to do it for others.. I wrote with the aim to inspire hope in dark places and to help normalise cancer (particularly lymphoblastic lymphoma), its treatments and associated procedures.

I hope you enjoy finding your 'new way' post cancer Liggo... let's live life to the full!!!! 😁
