This is a blog sharing poems and fundraising, raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support, because when you have cancer, you are still you, with a life to lead, friends to see, family who need you and people to love. Because life with cancer is still life, and Macmillan can help you live it.
I do this because my mother had a sarcoma when I was a child, since when both she and I have had breast cancer, meanwhile my brother is in remission from leukemia. My uncle and father-in-law died of prostate cancer, my aunt of lung cancer and a friend from ovarian cancer. Yet I feel blessed, I have met and been supported by such wonderful people, I have faced the world pickled, burnt and bald, with a giggle but questionable dignity.
I know the world is not ready for the one boob bikini, but there are 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK today, and as more people live longer with their cancer, this number is set to grow to 4 million by 2030. I am happy for you to share my work, and will be even happier if you make a donation to my fundraising page https://www.justgiving.com/whims-wishes
I can’t do it alone, if this is going to work I need to get it further, so I have set up a Facebook page too, at, https://www.facebook.com/pages/Whims-and-Wishes/505658006228162 Please like it and share it?
Thank you for your support -I am raising funds in the hope that those who are far more wise can help those who are far more deserving, just a little more…
