Five years as Stage 4
Today I’m smashing the five year mark since I was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer!
I’m so grateful to my friends, family, medical team and of course Pippa for getting me to this major milestone. I certainly couldn't have done it without this amazing forum either.
I hope through Strive for Five and Beating Bowel Cancer / Bowel Cancer UK I can help others facing this disease. I aim to give hope to people diagnosed with advanced bowel cancer that you can still lead full and happy lives. Just take a look at the Strive website under 'Steve's story' to see some of the things I've done since diagnosis - this isn't a brag list, hopefully it'll be uplifting to see: www.striveforfive.org
I know I’ve got a ‘limited shelf-life’ but I’m definitely enjoying life and looking forward to many more anniversaries!
