It’s a topic I’ve been avoiding writing about, but a pretty significant part of my story and where I am today. I was in the middle of chemo and about to start a new experimental treatment when my boyfriend of 6 years broke up with me at the start of the year.
Happiness = new pjs, colourful nails, book and sunshine ☀️🌈 #chronicillness #selfcare #invisibleillness
I work at a cancer charity and today we had a competition to dress up our area of the office in yellow in the lead up to our big fundraiser. Lots of homemade daffodils of hope featured, I love the meaning it brings and know from my experience how important hope is in Illness #hope #cancerfreefuture #desmoidtumor #cancer #familialadenomatouspolyposis
August hair: give or take a few uneven patches, I’m back to the bob I had before the chemo ordeal began in August 2016! Couldn’t be happier 😍🎉👧🏻 #chemohairgrowth #desmoidtumor #postchemohair
A weekend of sunshine, good friends and beautiful nature was just what my body needed 🍍🌴☀️🌈😍
