So many things can affect how we feel about our diagnosis and how we approach treatment, both positively and negatively. In cancer care that seems to be so much more important, as well as all the facts and stats that we have to deal with, there are so many myths and misconceptions. Add to this...
Today is a milestone that seemed impossible at diagnosis – 10 years with stage 4 cancer! I’m so grateful to my medical & surgical teams, my friends & family and the fab cancer community for getting me here. My FIRST decade of striving and thriving, I’m calling it #TENacity! It’s a good opportunity to highlight...
​ In 2013 I was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer and have been on long term ’maintenance’ chemo since 2014. I’ve had clear scans (No Evidence of Disease) for over 18 months now, so it’s not unreasonable for people to ask if I’m cured.​ However, it’s not easy to answer. The best way to see if I still...
This was written for Bowel Cancer Intelligence UK, which supports two major cancer initiatives – The UK Colorectal Cancer Intelligence Hub (CRUK), and the Yorkshire Bowel Cancer Improvement Programme (Yorkshire Cancer Research) I was diagnosed with advanced (stage 4) colorectal cancer in May 2013, when the disease had already spread to my liver and both...

In 2021 I carried out a survey on Facebook, Twitter and the Bowel Cancer UK online forum, asking which bowel preparation people prefer ahead of colonoscopies.​ Most respondents were from the UK​ There was a clear preference from most respondents for Picolax (69%)​ It should be noted that 31% stated they could not take or had problems taking Moviprep​ Conclusion – patients with...
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this may seem like an odd thing to highlight from a bowel cancer campaigner, but it’s important to recognise the fight against all types of cancer. It’s also vital to recognise and celebrate undoubted success.​ Breast cancer is a real success story in the UK with survival rates increasing from 82% in...
I’d rather not have stage 4 bowel cancer, it’s a bit of a drag! ​ I’ve accepted that I’ve got a ‘limited shelf life’, that I probably won’t live as long as if I didn’t have the disease. ​ I’ve accepted that I’m going to be on chemo for the rest of my life, along with the...
A diagnosis of stage 4 bowel cancer doesn’t have to be the end of your life, it can be the reason to start living it” Since my diagnosis in 2013 I’ve been so lucky to come through treatment in such good shape. I’m aiming to make the most of these ‘bonus years’ and am enjoying my life.​...
