This photo shows me and my friend N, playing and padded out in ridiculous 90s onesies, that was around 19 years ago. Yesterday N’s mum succumbed to a 12 year battle with cancer. I can honestly say his mum was the most amazing and inspiring person I have ever met, she fought so hard and always tried to stay positive. I have known N and his family almost all of my life, they lived around the corner, N and I went to the same school. His Mum and Dad were part of a very select number of people whom my parents managed to stay close with when life had let others drift away. Our thoughts are with N’s family in this hard time. In the course of your lifetime cancer will effect someone you know and love but it doesn’t have to end this way.
