“On 1 April 2016, I was given six months to live. I had palliative chemotherapy, but it took its toll after three intensive three day sessions – so I called it a day. I booked and planned my funeral. I said goodbye to family and friends and waited. I waited until my first grandson, Charlie, was born in early October. I got to hold him and I was so overjoyed. Then Christmas came and went –...

I'm slowly getting used to my bald head, and it takes me half the time to get ready! I still see the odd picture and I really miss my hair, but in the grand scheme of things I know it's not important. What's important is that I'm still here and I'm thankful for that.”...

It’s been an absolute rollercoaster...
