Hope - a feeling of expectation and desire for a particular thing to happen: a person or thing that may help or save someone:grounds for believing that something good may happen:
Trust - firm belief in the reliability, truth, or ability of someone or something:acceptance of the truth of a statement without evidence or investigation:the state of being responsible for someone or something:
Over the past year these two little words have been my everyday companions - having to deal with cancer I have continued to hope all would be ok and trust my medical team in all they needed me to go through.
On the 17th January 2013 I was diagnosed with an aggressive cervical cancer and throughout the year I had a lot of treatment, most of the time my body and I were able to cope with it all but I admit at times it tested me, but from the very beginning I put my trust in the wonderful team I have been fortunate to have around me and we got through it together.
On the 16th January 2014 I was officially clear of cancer.
So as I start 2014 in a much better place than last year I hope all the ladies currently having treatment remain well, I hope that one day ladies will no longer have to battle this disease, I hope you all have people around you that you trust and I hope those of us who have finished treatment remain cancer free.
Hope and Trust - just two little words that I send to you all - take them on your journey.
