General sentiment of the last 2 years expressed excellently thanks to another cross stitch design by Subversive Cross Stitch.
Those of you who know me will know that I’ve had a somewhat pained relationship with cancer over the last few years. First a childhood friend was diagnosed and thankfully beat his cancer. Then my beautiful cross-stitching-Seinfeld-loving Nana was diagnosed and sadly passed away last year. Then my mother’s partner was also diagnosed, had to go through months of extreme treatment and again, sadly passed away last year, which was around the same time that my Aunt and Godmother was also diagnosed, but thankfully she is in recovery.
A few weeks ago my childhood friend, Frances, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Frances is 21 and is in her first year of University at Swansea, where she will undergo her treatment. For a young girl, to have this news thrust upon her is understandably devastating, but Fran is brave and facing her treatment head on.
To support Fran through her treatment, and the added trauma of losing her hair due to chemotherapy, myself and 4 friends are all going to be having some pretty drastic haircuts around the beginning of May. We plead with you to kindly donate whatever you can and we will pass the donation onto Cancer Research UK so situations like this will become a thing of the past.
