We met in January 2017 in our new home, and we are hailed across the street from our new neighbour, Ken, in his rough Australian accent, “Oi, you got a minute?”
That “Oi!” Formed a friendship I will hold dear until I am no longer.
He taught me strength when the chips were down.
Courage, willpower and determination, only because he could.
Ken was a single amputee preparing to have the second removed from just below the knee down.
After the operation, he worked tirelessly day in, day out just to be able to get his new legs on to walk into the pub, walking in, for a pint of beer.
When he couldn’t do the basics, we would help him.
Well my friend, you have done enough here, I will meet you on the crossover when I get there.
It’ll be a while, but I will get there.
Castlemaine XXXX wasn’t it?
Farewell my friend. I will miss our chats.

This site was created to share my thoughts before, during and post cancer. I wanted to share with you how it can come and come fast and what it does when it comes to get you. It doesn't only effect you but to all the people around you who are close. Family, dear friends, nurses, doctors, who will be there to give you all the support, strength and the courage to be strong. More importantly it gives you the time to stay positive as you concentrate and focused on kicking this bug in the you know where. 'Staying Positive' is one of the most important things you can ever do.
Nothing Is Terminal! Only What We Do To Our Bodies Decides That.
I would also love to share with you what I did, what the "Juju" is that I am using to ensure good health, youthful feel for life and longer time living my life as healthy as it was meant to be. I am now sixty verging on sixty-one and the healthiest I have ever been for a very long time. This site is about how I went from three to six months from being six foot under to how I challenged the system and the way my health was to make it through cancer alive with both allopathic medicine, chemo and the mass of pills and otherwise, and organic medicines. As you can say it worked as I am still here.
