Cancer. A word that holds nothing but negative connotations and brings with it a feeling of fear, dread and frankly, misery. One way or another, we have all experienced the wrath of cancer, be it remotely or very close to home, it is now so common that effects all our lives.
There are some lucky ones. Like me, I am lucky. Lucky that at the age of 22 I have never suffered from the disease. Lucky, that although both of my parents were at the mercy of some form of cancer, they both made a full recovery. So that’s my experience with cancer. Like I said, I am, for the moment, lucky.
But some people aren’t so lucky. And with no fool proof cure for cancer readily available, we can’t be certain that those diagnosed will make a recovery. But we can damn well do our best to make sure that while they’re on this journey, they aren’t alone.
Which is where this fabulous charity comes in. Macmillan. Now I understand that there are some people that don’t believe in giving money to cancer research charities, for whatever reason. But this charity is different. The offer support and aid to anybody who is experiencing this awful disease, helping sufferers, families and friends make it through this dark time. So who are we to deny this charity that has nothing but honourable intentions?
It is for this reason I have decided to participate in the mass movement sparked by Macmillan – Go Sober For October. And I need your help, lovely readers and followers. Join me on my crusade!

I am lucky that I had both my parents by my side in this graduation photo. It’s time to help those may not be that lucky.
