I live in the West Midlands with my husband, all my children are grown. I'm 57. My diagnosis is Multiple Myeloma for which I am currently receiving targeted therapy which will be followed by high dose chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant at the end of the year. I was also diagnosed with Non Hodgkin's lymphoma where it was isolated to a tumour behind my right eye. This has been successfully treated with radiotherapy. I have just taken voluntary redundancy from my job as a lecturer.
