Surviving cancer affects everyone differently. Some people run marathons, climb mountains, walk across continents to raise money for the hospitals that have cared for them and the charities that they hope will save others from what they have been through. Some people make changes right across their lives because dancing with cancer feels as though it has given them a new perspective and they want to make the most of it. Some people go back to their lives and never speak the c-word again.
Me? I talk.
Talking has been my job for a long time – pre-cancer I was a trainer and speaker by profession. But talking about my dance with cancer is something that feels very important to me. I want people to know what being treated for cancer is really like: I want to share the details, which I think takes away the fear, and I want to answer questions to the best of my ability. I want to make people laugh, and I want them to understand that a cancer diagnosis does not always mean the end of the world. I want to tell people what worked for me and what I wish I’d done differently. Most of all, I want to show people that it’s possible to go through cancer and come out the other end smiling, enriched, and well.
