It will only take you a moment to realise that this post has not been written by Malina.
Malinaday was just incredible and I didn't know how else I could pass on my thanks other than brief editorial control of my wonderful wife's blog. Yesterday, once again, showed what an incredible group of friends we have and the support we have been shown since we embarked on this journey has been truly humbling and something I wonder if we will ever be able to repay in full. Certainly it is something we will never, ever forget. Our families and friends have done so much for us already and yet on the toughest of days they just dig deeper still and you cannot underestimate the difference it has made.
But it goes beyond this. We have had support in all shapes and sizes, physical and spiritual from complete strangers. I also could not ask for a better employer. The Royal Navy and the Fleet Air Arm in particular, has bent over backwards for us. I truly believe we have witnessed the best of human kindness and community over the past few months.
Thank you all so much.
- I started to write this blog in January 2010 when I found out I had breast cancer. In the archive you can read my honest account on the whole experience. How devastating it was for me and how I didn't know if I was going to live to see the next Christmas. How my beautiful family (my little boy and a wonderful husband) supported me through surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The cancer has just come back and metastasised with a vengeance and it is now incurable, at least by conventional medicine. I am trying alternative treatments but I also believe God wants to heal me.
