Hello out there, all you lovely people. Please come in, have a seat, a cup of your favourite beverage and put your feet up. I hope you can relax a little in this world of stressful information.
I wonder how Teenagers deal with Cancer
I have often wondered in the last couple of weeks how it would have been to have cancer much earlier than I do. My mother was nearly 35 when she passed away from cancer. My cousin was in her 20’s when she had cancer. And I see so many adverts for charities for children or teenagers with cancer.
Even though I feel like I am dealing ok with everything it does take its toll. Last week I had a bout of “I am sick and tired of being sick and tired” and “when can I be “normal” again?”.
I cannot imagine how difficult it is to deal with Cancer as a young person
I cannot imagine how difficult it must be when you are a teenager and all your peers and friends have the chance to party, to get on with school and to make plans for their future life but you can’t.
Cancer means a multitude of appointments. It involves managing side-effects of medication and different treatments and for many a stay in hospital. It means tiredness, sickness, and somehow, life is on hold.Tweet
This heroes welcome for 15-year old cancer survivor Courtney made me cry
As I know a little what it means, I found this story very touching. In fact, it made me cry because it was such a lovely gesture of this neighbourhood:
“A group of neighbours in Los Angeles threw a socially distanced welcome-home party for a teenager after she finished chemotherapy. Courtney Johnson, 15, was diagnosed with cancer in June and was receiving treatment at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. The video was shared by her mother on social media” via Guardian US
Congratulations Courtney! You so deserve this heroes welcome!!!!

Just one more thing before you go: The hospital that is treating me for cancer is fundraising for a dedicated breast cancer unit which would allow same-day diagnosis and better premises for patients and staff.
