My whole world changed in the summer of 2012 – not only did I find out that I had cancer, but was told that it was incurable. It feels as if you’ve been given a death sentence. Or it did initially – but not now. Now that I have taken full control of my own health, and totally changed my lifestyle. I have learned more about cancer, its causes, and treatment options.
It is my mission to change people’s perceptions about living with cancer. To show that you can still be happy, have a spring in your step, a smile on your face and a twinkle in your eye.
As a speaker, anything that happens to you provides more material. Facing this massive challenge means that I can help businesses face up to their own particular challenges by sharing the steps I have followed to get me where I am today – alive and well, against the odds.
