Things are starting to look a little better after my last appointment, some genes have been identified in the tumour. That means that I could be in line for a trial if the right one is available. I will keep going and pushing myself so I can get on a trial, it would give me a bit of hope and after my scan being said to look ‘slightly better’ things are looking up. I don’t know what that is down to, I believe the changes I’ve made to my life has really helped, going vegetarian because of the belief that cancer cells feed off red meat and I do believe praying has helped. But overall I know the chemotherapy may be working, which is really good to know that what I’m putting in my body is worth it.
I’ve also managed to run twice this week which is an improvement. On Wednesday, for some reason I decided to do hill reps instead of intervals. No, I don’t know why either. Then on Saturday I ran my usual Saturday mile. I was so proud, I beat last week’s time by over 2 minutes. That shows me that I’m improving and nearly ready to complete my ultimate aim., to return back to running club. Also this week, I’m back on my chemotherapy, who knew small tablets could be so strong? And I’ve also accepted university offers. That’s another aim of mine, to graduate university. Fingers crossed a trial comes a long and works.
Finally, I’d just like to say thank you for all of your support, every time in called ‘an inspiration’ or ‘strong’ it means a lot to me. It means a lot to me because I know that I’m helping people who are struggling out there and raising awareness into the biggest cancer killer. Thank you so much to the podcast who have allowed me to come on their show, which you can find in the podcast section of my website that I’ve just thought to make. Finishing things off, I know that things look better for me now but I know it will only extend my life, due to where the tumour is, so if I get a trial I’ll be very lucky because I’m 18 and want long enough to start a family. I want my parents to be grandparents and I want offspring. I want to be remembered for good and not suffering, which I luckily don’t feel at the moment but I know I will eventually. Just remember never to throw away opportunities and remember life is the longest thing we’ll ever had so do what makes you happy.
