A Mum’s Message

This week we have a guest blog from my mum, Donna, and her take on what having a child with cancer means, for the whole family.

When Emily was diagnosed with cancer our world changed in an instant forever. I now view the world different. I feel empowered to make a difference and give something back to the many charities that have supported us.  I have done voluntary work for over 20 years. This has given me new momentum.

As parents, many of us joke about wishing our children came with an instruction manual.  Especially when they are babies. It’s a good job they don’t.  I may have sent them back with fear about what laid ahead.

My mother would say its because my house is unlucky and I should move before someone else is stuck down by some disease or condition. Ironically, since moving here my children have been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, epilepsy, asthma, dyslexia, dyspraxia, and Cancer.  But we have also been blessed to be able to add to our family. We don’t feel unlucky but the complete opposite. We are so lucky to have these children. They enrich  our live beyond  words.

Me & the CLIC Sargent Music Resedential

This week its rather a bit more of a ‘me’ blog, though it does seem such a while since I wrote that blog about results day, and I have been up to a lot since then! By the way I also hope that everyone picking up their results were happy with them!

So what have I been up to since then?

Well I spent the beginning of this week from Monday to Thursday, at a music residential run by Clic Sargent. It was held in Stonar School, a boarding school near Bath (posh right?)

Now, for lack of more words and sophisticated description …..It was AMAZING!!!

I honestly cannot describe what an awesome time I had… but for the sake of this weeks blog I will attempt to do so!
