[CANCER] Returning to Work after #Chemotherapy 1 #BreastCancer #BusyLivingwithMets

So, Tuesday last week, after 1.5 days on the chemo ward, I had completed my first round of docetaxel, perjeta and Herceptin. My cousin had headed back to London, another friend dropped me off, and the PJs went straight on ... I was exhausted but also hyper on the steroids - so, as I have continued to do, for the rest of the week, taken Zopiclone each night which seems to give me a good…

[MEDIA] Contribution to The Christie Hospital (How to Outperform)

At  the end of October last year, I undertook an interview with Lisa Mainwaring, producer of this interesting looking Audible series 'How to OutPerform' on British brands and what they can teach the world. I've just downloaded them all from Audible, as I had previously heard a rough edit of the Christie programme and thought it was really well paced/interesting.

[ACADEMIC] Checking in with @4NTWRKSMCR for #DSMMCM1819

They are seeking 'backlinks' for their 'Digital and Social Media Marketing Communications Management' project, a final year unit where @groovegenerator encourages students to…

[CANCER] Chemo 1 (of 4?) Done for #Metastatic #BreastCancer

This time, I'm undergoing treatment at the Laurel Suite at Stepping Hill Hospital, and can I say what a friendly environment. The Christie staff are great (and my nurses here are Christie nurses), but don't really seem to have time to slow down and take 5 minutes with you ... feeling a bit like sitting in living room…

[CANCER] Fear of the known? Chemotherapy (again) #WhatCancerLooksLike #BreastCancer

Well, it's not fear of the known, more like - as Kaz says 'The fact is you must face the known this time around with a gut wrenching feeling in your stomach, before the drugs have even had the chance to do that for you. It’s not exciting and it’s not something I had planned on doing again.' *Oh, and check out #TrueCancerBodies in response to campaigns such as #BosomBuddies. I've had a lovely weekend,…
