Childhood Cancer Awareness Month – September 2019

I thought I had done quite a good job of avoiding Childhood Cancer Awareness Month this year. I had seen a few things on Twitter, which I had shared in the hopes it might help someone.

The really gritty stuff tends to be on Facebook and I deliberately don’t go there that often, especially not during #CCAM

But, as we started easing out of September and towards Blogtober, I began to think that I had managed the month quite well. I’d had some reflective moments but I had done ok.

And then, WHACK! straight out of nowhere, nothing could have made me more aware than becoming a cancer parent FOR THE THIRD TIME!

As I write this, I am waiting for the full results of my son’s biopsy. What we do know is that he has Acute Leukaemia. Therefore, we are back on the rollercoaster again …

    Marie, I just want to say that I am sure there are many of us thinking about you. I’ve been aware of your sons journey for quite a while now thru a mutual FB group that I was a member of. I’ve only just found this blog, I am just gutted for you and your son that it is all starting all over again. I can’t offer any words of wisdom and support other than keep talking and if you can – keep sharing – it helps so much being able to put down in words what is going round in your head.x
