Raising some more!

It's been a while since I last updated my blog so I thought with my AS exams finished and a few other things out the way now would be a good time to update everyone.

My last lot of scan results showed that my tumours had stayed the same and hadn't grown, meaning the cancer was stable. This hopefully means it is dead but they'll carry on scanning to check that it doesn't come back. It's also been nearly a year since I finished treatment now, so I'm one year closer to being given the all clear! One down and four more to go! 

My last effort to raise money for TCT with the Lost Boys Rally reached a grand total of £1200! It's fantastic that so many people donated and I'm grateful to all of you. This money goes to help so many young people across the country and I was honestly amazed at how generous everyone was! 

My next charity event is happening this Saturday in Newcastle. I'll be participating in a zip wire across the River Tyne. The zip wire travels roughly 280m across the river, from a height of 40m! I'm not scared of heights but I imagine I'll be questioning as to why I signed up to do it once I'm up there! 

If anyone wants to sponsor me I've set up a just giving page, the link is below.


I've also received a video of the speech I did at the Royal Albert Hall back in April. I hate watching myself back but I've been told to put in on here for anyone who wishes to watch it, although I can't bare to!

I'll hopefully be going on Radio 2 at some point in the future, so I'll be sure to let people know when! Thank you in advance to who sponsors me, you're really making a difference!

  2. I've been thinking about you & just wasn't feeling like being on the computer much...so it was good to see this update from you when I looked. I'm back on chemo again.. they want me to do 4 cycles..this is to help hopefully shrink the tumor some ( its in my low left pelvic area kind of between all the organs in that area and is hurting me a lot with pressure pain, etc.. ugh!) the chemo is also to try to keep any rogue cancer cells from re-seeding when I have surgery. I have to have my bladder, the lower part of my intestines and anything else the tumor is touching or near..removed. I would then have a bag for the intestines, and another for the bladder. It all sounds scarey and I'm glad the Lord will be going through it with me, and that my family is very supportive. I sure hope that your cancer remains stable & that you keep moving on to that big 5 year mark!!! So happy for you! Lynn W.
