Hi folks, it’s been a while since I posted properly, but I wanted to pop by and say hello. Some might remember me, some may not. I stop in from time-2-time to see how folk are getting on and have been saddened to read so many of those that helped me SO much are still struggling. Some have even lost their battles already. I just wanted to let you know that although I don’t post as regularly as I used to, you are all very much in my thoughts.
I myself am doing well. This August will be my 2 year anniversary from my last op and so far, so good 🤞🏻 there have been a few hiccups along the way but nothing unmanageable. I’m currently nearing the end of a personal challenge I set myself nearly 8 months ago now, which was to swim the English Channel distance (22 miles) every month for 8 months. That’s 176 miles in total. This is in aid of my darling Dad, who was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer last year. He underwent 8 gruelling weeks of daily treatment and I’m pleased to say he was given the all clear in Feb this year. I finish my challenge next month but am already well ahead of schedule 9km into my final ‘crossing’). This photo was taken yesterday whilst in Spain post-swim, where I’m swimming 3km everyday (for 16 days straight!) For this particular challenge I’m raising funds for Prostate Cancer UK, but I’m already devising my next big challenge in aid of OC.
Anyways - my love & light go out to you all. You inspire me everyday with your stories of courage and determined grit, no mater what this ba*tard disease tries to throw at you! To you my sister soldiers, who I think of often xx
P.S. If anyone would like to know more about my challenge, let me know and I can DM you my JustGiving page. I don't think I'm allowed to put this on the thread. x
