Your interest makes me happy!

Sadly I’ve lost my partner in Aug’17 after battling cancer for 3 years.
I’ve been tackling my deep grief and its unique loneliness, an exhausting and traumatic year of nursing, and some associated stress/mental health conditions, despite being drained by financial and bureaucratic issues and by painful family relationships.

Frank and I were not married. But our 20 vivid years are nicely nurturing me.
And I’ve been groping my way towards a new life thanks to some wonderful support - from the kindness of many people, from some more specific and consistent assistance, and from experts.

Cancer knocked at my door too.
In Jan I’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer metastatic to the bones. Treatable but incurable, I should be around for years. The gentle approach with a NHS hormone therapy seems to be working. It helps a lot finding ways to improve my quality of life as well as to manage pain, energy and side effects.

It is even more unsettling to deal with all this without having at least some money to survive.
Gratefully my rent is covered but from June’18, once left with no savings, I’ve been struggling to pay for food and other expenses. I have debts and an arranged overdraft. I am still unable to work. Recently grants and donations have been my salvation.
£2,500 won’t solve but will contribute in maintaining a slow-paced and protected life with focus on my overall health.
It is difficult to plan my current life, but I believe finding a suitable job could also be helpful to my health and to my reconnecting with life.

to Mich, Dr Jenny, Hackney Council & my landlord, Emmanuelle, Michael, Anna, Rev Sophia & All Hallows by The Tower, Quiet Waters, Tom, Camphill Wellbeing Trust, Karolis & Uran, and to the familiar/first time contacts that have, are doing and will make a difference in my life, not only in the neighbourhood, charity organisations but everywhere I go!

    What a first week - I have also received a cheque and a can of delicious oil. Some feedback via email was very touching, and it was a pleasure contacting some people after many years. Healthwise: I can't help with some tricky days but this appeal has been boosting my confidence, energy and good sleep. Many thanks to everyone! Angela
