I never expected a tweet about ‘s campaign to have the impact it did. I’ve had so many moving replies and I’m so sorry I can’t reply to all of them. To those whose story has been a positive one - I’m so glad. For those, like me, it wasn’t, God Bless x

Bladder cancer. Yes it does exist. It's the 6th most common but gets just 0.6% of research funding. Do you know the symptoms?

With only 2 trips to see doctors my path to diagnoses is classed as pretty straightforward. However my white blood cells were so high that had I been sent home again without a blood test I would have had a stroke within days. Remember that you know your body best

My partner too was suffering from swollen / painful lymphs in his neck, which prompted him to see his GP. Thankfully, his doctor was able to recognise the other signs and sent him to hospital for further tests, before being diagnosed with CLL.

Dr Ben Kennedy - the outcome and how a consultation goes relies on how well you listen, communicate and react to what a patient is saying.

Next Wednesday will be 6 years since I lost my amazing Dad to Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. The awareness that this campaign will bring will hopefully mean that this can be diagnosed quicker and more people are aware of the symptoms.

Acute Myeloid Leukaemia took my Dad 4 years ago, I’ve watched my friend battle Non Hodgkin Lymphoma twice. If she listened to her GP with the first lot she wouldn’t be here she argued for tests thank god!
