Musings – Guest Blog on HerFamily.ie

“Writing is the only way I have to explain my own life to myself.”
― Pat ConroyMy Reading Life

I received an email into my inbox a couple of weeks ago from the lovely people at http://www.herfamily.ie. They asked if I would consider writing a guest blog about being a mum who lives with cancer.

I said yes, but when I sat down to write it, I had no idea where to begin. How do you fit a whole year of treatment and nine years of life after treatment into a blog post?

I managed to fit a good chunk of the story into what they had to call a ‘Sunday Read’, which translates as ‘a very long read so make sure you are sitting comfortably with a cup of tea when you sit down to read it’.

Here is a link to what has appeared on the HerFamily.ie website. If you like it please feel free to share it from there or from here. We won’t fight over blog hits!

Sunday Read: What It Feels Like To be a Mum-Of-Two Living With Cancer

Thanks to the team at HerFamily.ie for giving me the opportunity to be a guest blogger. Perhaps I can add that to my blogging CV now!

    1. Aw thanks Donna. I hope you had a tissue? I cried myself when I read it again yesterday. It is a tough read from a tough time. For the first few years after the treatment I couldn’t talk about it without getting teary. It’s only in the last couple of years I have felt I could write properly about it and talk about it. I appreciate you taking the time to read it and to comment. Thank God for life after the Big C!
