I am a 48 year old chap who was diagnosed with bowel cancer in August 2011.

This blog tries to detail my progress – I refuse to use the word ‘journey’.

I an not entirely sure why I am writing it – whether it will be therapeutic for myself or help other folk who find themselves in a similar position.

In some way, this was inspired by Kjetil Hoiseth’s moving and inspirational blog about his own battle with AML.
