My story

[p]On the 5th of April 2020, just before the peak of the first wave of the pandemic I was diagnosed with head and neck cancer. I am a nurse, I had just got my promotion to Matron. My world was turned upside down. My wife and 2 daughters world got turned upside down. I have been through radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Chemo sucks. It didn't get all the cancer. I had to have a radical neck dissection removing the tumor and a load of stuff it was stuck to, muscles, veins and nerves. I am now back on my feet and back at work. Above & Beyond are the charity for the hospital where I received all my treatment. In the midst of a pandemic my treatment was excellent. The diligence and the care of everyone that looked after me still makes me cry. I have always wanted to run the London marathon. To do it the same year that I beat cancer is my challenge. Please if you can help me give back to those that saved me and cared for me.[/p][p]05/06/2021[/p][p]So this is no longer the year I beat cancer. A couple of months ago I found a lump in my neck. After a load of scans which led to an excision and biopsy under general anaesthetic, cancer was found still present in my neck. A further PET scan revealed it has spread to my lungs and mediastinal lymph nodes. My cancer is now incurable. I have started immunotherapy and hope that this will bring me some durability. Please get busy living. Work hard do good. Every smile or kind word is like a butterfly flapping their wings.....[/p]

James your story makes me so sad, but you look such a happy person, it all seems so unfair. I'm wishing you all the best and really hope your treatment keeps you going for years to come.
