I'm really proud of my response to a shock medical diagnosis in January 2012 when I was told that I had non-Hodgkins follicular lymphoma . In that time I have totally transformed my life, changing my diet and lifestyle radically and becoming a committed runner and keep-fit fanatic. I have lost around two stones in weight and look years younger than I did when diagnosed. In the summer of 2015 I ran the Lakeland 50 mile challenge and have run several marathons and ultra marathons, raising thousands for Cancer charities and St Benedict's Hospice. I have had so much prayer support from my church family. I am still on "watchful waiting" and am blessed not to have needed any treatment whatsoever. I do get tired very easily, especially if I sit down for any length of time and find it difficult to read without nodding off!! So grateful for audiobooks - I'm a great Inspector Rebus (Ian Rankin) fan.
