Hello again. 

One more, there has been much water under the bridge. I will be moving to Perth at the end of June, following my partner Jean who has taken up a place at the University of Western Australia.

And so we come adroitly t0 my recent blog. As promised, it's the second part of my experiences dealing with cancer. I am writing it because I would like people to have some understanding of the disease and its treatment. It's not definitive, but it should give you some idea and make you more aware. Anyway, I hope so.

Look after yourselves and remember, you have a mighty pen. Use it often and in a good cause.
