World Cancer Day is here and evidence shows Sepsis rates are 4 times higher in cancer patients. #WorldCancerDay #sepsisToday is #WorldCancerDay - many people still aren't aware of the relationship between cancer and sepsis - sepsis rates are 4 times higher in cancer patients, and cancer patients have a 55% higher chance of dying from sepsis than non-cancer patients.

Something that may connect with many that we (Sophie, Cath and I) often say when we are having a bad day.. “Ride it out and write it off” - difficult for many to understand fully and often at different levels, but true words that works for us. #muchlove to everyone that often shares/connects with these words at bad times xx #rideitoutandwriteitoff ...

Let me give some context of the meaning of this photo to me. Lucy was travelling to Heathrow on a train from Newport and onto Turin, Italy to perform for the first time internationally as an Acrobatic Gymnast. It's one of my personal favourites as, to me, it shows her thoughtfulness and appreciation for music. She was looking at the nature around our beautiful country and building the strength to perform the best she could in a foreign land whilst looking forward to the "Italian experience". The "final pose" photo merge was from a competition in Yate International Gym where she trained every day after school before her death. To us, it's a portrayal of "that's my best I can do, mark me what you will, I did it and 100% enjoyed it!, THIS is me!" The combination of the photos shows her thoughtfulness, the appreciation of music, the passion for performing and doing her utmost best in what she did whilst, in the background, coping with all the other "normal" teenage stresses of exams etc.. #special Neil x
