Banana Giraffes blog was set up to help and distract me going through chemotherapy during the long lonely winter months.
Banana Giraffes was the daftest thinking blog name I could think of which didn’t sound too earnest. An excuse to think of new weekly challenges from the absurd to the absorbing. I still can’t say the word without smiling, its full of silliness and sunshine and both were in short supply.
Sadly not all the content reflected the silliness of the name. One of the side effects of surviving this awful disease is watching your friends succumbing.
The original nature of this blog has as you can see, moved on from distracting challenges to being a beacon of hope for anyone recently diagnosed with bowel cancer, especially at an advanced state.
It’s a tough one continuing to write content without sounding pompous or out of touch, so I may not blog as often, but I’m still here and thriving.
So keep on keeping on whoever you are. And don’t loose hope please. X
