I am new here. I’ve joined because I met some lovely ladies at a Cancer Research day in Birmingham a few weeks back and they said how wonderful everyone on the boards is
I was diagnosed with cervical cancer this time last year and fortunately following a hysterectomy and lymph node removal I was given the all clear last June. I have read a lot of the posts and realised now I am not the only one taking time to heal emotionally.
One thing I have found which helps is writing [color=#800080]poetry[/color] which was a bit of a suprise. I’ve written quite a bit - some linked to my experience of cancer, some just fun stuff but I had an idea the other day!
I do a lot of fundraising for Macmillan and I thought along with Jo’s Trust as well I would consider compiling a book of poetry with the proceeds going to Macmillan and Jo’s Trust to continue the valuable work they do.
If you would like to contribute a poem I would love to include poems from other people in the book as it would be a bit boring otherwise.
If you think you have any inspiration let me know! I was thinking of calling the poetry book [color=#408040]Seek not Hide [/color]which is the idea behind walking up all 5 peaks in Great Britain in 48 hours which me and my husband & friends are attempting at the end of May!
Hope to hear from some aspiring poets and I’ll post a poem soon
