How does SBC effect your life?

Where do you begin with this? I mean it feels like life has been turned on its head. But I have 3 children and the priority is to keep life as normal as possible for them. I have cut my work hours and far too often I need to go to bed at 7.30 but the priority is staying strong and healthy to be able to see my kids grow up. 

Advice for someone diagnosed with SBC

Everyone tells you to live life to the fullest, and while it's tempting to go off and travel the world, it didn't take me long to realise the priority is that what I want in the future is to have three happy and healthy children. And really the best way to do that is by them experiencing as normal a life as possible so I have to find a way to do that. For the kids, I try to let the cancer take a back seat to everything. They'll see me take pills and go to bed early, but they also see me going out for the day and having fun with them. They don't see that I spent the previous day lying on the sofa to make sure I was well rested and ready to do that. And that's how it balances out.
