Surviving childhood cancer

Grandparents and children sharing tips and stories

From Gemma Bambrough

I survived cancer aged seven years. Now 17 years on I still find it difficult to believe I was so ill. People call me a miracle to have survived it as the doctors found it difficult to find a cure for my kind of cancer which was in my pelvis. I am a very strong and determined person and find myself getting on with life well. It's always there 'why me' question I cant get rid of!

I want to write a book about my experiences and how you do cope! My advice to anyone coping with cancer now, just keep your chin up and you will get through it!
