For the last three months I’ve been living, breathing and feeling probably most peoples worst nightmare. I’m sure everyone who follows me vaguely knows I was diagnosed with cancer when I was fifteen. I went through chemo and had my leg amputated, and on January 20th 2020 I was cancer free! 

Two and a half amazing years later full of laughs and smiles, and ,unfortunately, I found out my cancer has come back. 

I’ve been living with cancer for the past three months and had some of the best memories of my life.

My cancer so far has come back in four spots and I have made the decision not to go through chemo; rather be on palliative care and keep all my pain under control until we no longer can… Despite being told I have relapsed, and now being terminally ill I’ve laughed and loved harder than I ever have in my life the past few months. 

Happiness can be found in any situation at any point, and a pinch of kindness will never go a miss; behind closed doors someone might need you to be their ray of sunshine .☀️😄

In light of all the recent news, I’ve decided to try and raise a bit of money for the teenage cancer trust. Time and time again through chemo, remission and relapse they have saved my life whether that be physically or mentally. Every single nurse, therapist, social worker that has worked along side me has been my little ray of sunshine I’ve needed, and for that reason I want to give back. 

I’m going to run the great north 5K in Newcastle fingers crossed alongside friends and family. The run is in three weeks time and I have done absolutely no training… with a uni diet, one leg and now terminal cancer it’ll be a miracle if I finish it, however it would be greatly appreciated if you could spare a donation for me and the TCT. 

Cheers, Lu x
