Since my last blog post Being Dealt A Bad Hand I’ve tried to focus more on all the good things I have in my life, and changing the things I can control. I’m going to do my best to try not to focus on those I can’t change. This can be very challenging week on week, but I feel a little more postive this week. It’s good for me to have something to look forward to post treatment, such as meeting with a friend I’ve not seen for a while, or planningfun activities around Christmas time.
By chance, I came across a charity called Something To Look Forward To via social media a few weeks ago. Something To Look Forward To is a charity website for people with cancer and their families, which allows them to access a variety of gifts donated by other people and companies. This can be anything from restaurant meals, hotel stays, hair and beauty treatments, or tickets for various gig, events and attractions across the UK.
I filled out the forms and was lucky enough to recieve a voucher for a meal at my local pizza restaurant, and am looking forward to using it! I already know what I want to order. It’s the small things that sometimes make a big difference, particularly when people might be struggling with the mental and physical effects of cancer. I’d recommend anyone going through treatment to check out the website, you never know what you might find.
