Cancer Bonuses

I've had a chance to read through some of the latest posts that I've published, and well, the tone is rather sombre. Let's take a small break from the current reality and have a look back on the positives that have come from my cancer diagnosis.

I remember my very first chemotherapy session quite clearly. The majority of my time was spent talking with a girl who was having her last session, and she explained to me the concept of 'Cancer Bonuses'.

In no real order, here are my 10 Cancer Bonuses:

1. Care Packages
Who doesn't love a care package?

2. A Giant Chocolate Bunny
I bit his ears off first.

3. My Car Through Motability
Me and Clive the Clio!

4. Trips courtesy of the Amy Wallace Magpie Trust
It was Siriusly magical.

5. Socks
My sock collection brings so much joy!

6. Sailing with the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust
Jib! Jib! Tack! Haul!

7. Morphine
Moving swiftly along...

8. Find Your Sense of Tumour with the Teenage Cancer Trust
Representing the Young Adults from University College Hospital, London.

9. Trips with Teens Unite
They say music soothes the soul...

10. My Amazing Friends
I couldn't be luckier to have the support of so many amazing people.
And that makes ten! So yeah. Had I not gone through what I'm going through, I would never have had the opportunity to do so many things. It's not all treatment and bleakness!

Feel free to spread the joy using the 'Share' buttons below or you can leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
