I was asked by Ovacome if I would let them tell my cancer story to magazines and newspapers to raise awareness. I agreed and told Juliet my story which she is going to use.
I had a call from my local newspaper this week who are going to use my story this week in both the very local Diss Mercury and the EDP which covers all of East Anglia. The reporter read the article out to me and I was very happy with what he had written.
The way Ovacome and I have approached this was to cover my adventures with my lovely boys from my bucket list. I wanted to bring awareness for the symptoms but also to say having a terminal diagnosis doesn't mean you have to stop enjoying life to the full. I also make photo books of 'memories' for my children to keep and look back on when I am no longer here.
We have had many adventures over the last 3 years including camel riding, falconry, sky diving, tank driving, hovercraft driving, roller skating, holidays and days out to name a few.
I am really proud to be able to do my bit to help bring awareness to every woman and we hope that some of the national papers and magazines will be interested in my story to spread the word even further.
I am practising my signature for when the article is published as I may be inundated with autograph hunters wherever I go Heh heh!
