This is a poetry fundraising space, I am raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support, looking for an outcome that helps those diagnosed with cancer to enjoy life. Being told ‘you have cancer’ can affect so much more than your health – it can also affect your family, your job, even your ability to pay the bills. But you’re still you. We get that. And, after over 100 years of helping people through cancer, we get what’s most important: that you’re treated as a person, not just a patient. It’s why we’ll take the time to understand you and all that matters to you, so we can help you get the support you need to take care of your health, protect your personal relationships and deal with money and work worries.

We’re here to help you find your best way through from the moment of diagnosis, so you’re able to live life as fully as you can. For information, support or just someone to talk to, call 0808 808 00 00 or visit

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 am happy for you to share my work, and will be even happier if you make a donation to my fundraising page

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,  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…
