Hi Amazing People!

I have just trekked to Machu Picchu and it was an amazing way of celebrating being alive, being 50 and being able to give something back to a charity that makes a huge difference to so many bowel cancer patients and their families (like ours). Some of you may already know that my beloved father has recently been diagnosed with bowel cancer, and is now beginning his recovery from major surgery. Thats 4 of us now in my family (me & both my brothers too). My incredible Peruvian adventure was all about raising money for BEATING BOWELCANCER as well as continuing raising awareness the symptoms of the disease. The wonderful group I accompanied on the six-day Inca-Trail trek raised over £52,000 and more money is expected to come in.
STOP PRESS........
A couple of weeks after returning to Cambridge, UK. I was still suffering from altitude sickness. My husband and a friend took me to our local A & E where a scan revealed a brain tumor. Two days later another tumor was found in my left lung as well as a blood clot in my right lung.
Luckily, both are secondary cancers and burst of radio and chemotherapy will get both sorted.
