https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZNjsZGPNTk&feature=youtu.be Firstly, I was nervous about this 🙊 My experience in presenting is on fitness content but when I sat down to outline this talk, self-doubt crept in.

Cancer and Relationships

Relationships. As much as I share on social media, I hardly share anything about this topic online.  Reasons not too morphed over the years.  Now, no longer.  It is with a deep understanding of differences amidst the same desired fundamentals and the value of learning through conversations.

Stem Cell Transplant – Em’s Hospital Stay Diary

Day -13 As in 13 days until the day of my stem cell transplant/bone marrow transplant (STC/BMT) for Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. Admission, prep, deposit.
