Another week of cancer treatment is underway

I am really blown over by the response to my blog last week. People (in particularly Irish people in my uneducated opinion) are just amazing. I am so grateful for everyone who continues to share my story, my sister Siobháin said 5 people she knows got their smears last week as a result.. amazing.. well done ladies. I would be so happy to think that … Continue reading Another week of cancer treatment is underway
