‘I spent the past short while posting pictures taken around this time last year so I can show what a difference a year makes… and also to say that through all those changes, I’m still here. Still, fighting? Does the fight for survival ever end?
‘I choose to say: still healing. Still improving. Every day I draw another breath… still WINNING.
The world buckled down and braced for the impact of COVID-19 while each day I was terrified that an encounter with the virus while on chemotherapy could result in my death due to my compromised immune system…’
