International Women’s Day

ARTICLE FROM LYMPHOMA ASSOCIATION WEBSITE

On #InternationalWomensDay, we’re celebrating female physician Dorothy Reed, who had a major influence on the classification of classical Hodgkin lymphoma.

Dr Thomas Hodgkin first described Hodgkin lymphoma in 1832. Some years later Dorothy Reed, along with Carl Sternberg, confirmed that the presence of specific cells indicate classical Hodgkin lymphoma. These cells have a characteristic appearance of ‘owl eyes’ and are now known as Reed–Sternberg cells.

Awesome Comics Podcasts – Episode 87 – Real Life Issues in Comics

We were very kindly invited to join the very funny gents at “The Awesome Podcast” to discuss real life issue in comics.
Dan Butcher, Vince Hunt and Tony Ezmond.

I was super nervous, but the guys put us at ease and we had a good honest chat and laugh about comics, cancer, toilets and more ..

You can listen to the podcast on the link below.
(Please note – this is an 18+ podcast, which does contain swearing and sexual references)

LISTEN HERE – AWESOME COMICS PODCAST – ISSUE 87

Awesome comics Facebook page

Highly recommend listening to the boys other issues. They are very funny, touching and can learn so much about the comic book world from these guys.

“Comics are a powerful medium and in the right hands can truly help people through tough times. The Awesome Pod crew are joined this week by Susie Gander, whose brilliant semi-autobiographical comic Perry Winkle not only helped her as she battled cancer, but is helping others too. She’s also got the same sense of humour as the ACP gang, so there are crazy jokes and laughs flying in all directions! It’s a brilliant conversation that you come to expect from the show, informative, educational and stocked full of ridiculous chuckles. Plus theres an added bonus of two hilarious out takes from Dans dictionary corner. Dont miss it!”

Vince Hunt – Creator of The Red Mask from Mars
Tony Ezmond – Writer and “Down the tubes” & “Place to hang your cap” contributor.

Our story in pictures

Hi All

Hope you’re having a great weekend.

We have added a new page under the Welcome menu titled “Our story in pictures”

During chemo, I kept a blog on my Facebook, it’s a chronological picture diary of events and wanted to share with you on Perry Winkle too.

Sometimes, you still feel like you have so much to fight, but this makes you appreciate how far you have already come.

(Please be advised, there are pictures of needles, which some may find upsetting)

As always please don’t hesitate to contact us.

As promised ..

Hi Guys

Hope you all had a good week.

After lots of rest and pills, the whiplash has eased and as promised, we are some new stuff 🙂

Thank you so much for your patience.

On a very cold Saturday, Chris and I met up with some of our amazing friends, Megan, Samantha and Helen (who is also a Lymphoma Beacon of Hope award winner and survivor for all her charity work and raising awareness). We had a lovely day of collecting. Was great fun and raised an awesome £257.92 for the Lymphoma Association.

 

World Cancer Day

For world cancer day.

Lets just say… It didn’t beat me.

For those who lost the battle, you fought as best you could.

For those fighting still… don’t ever give up.

For those who live with the knowledge it may return.. don’t let fear hold you back.

Fight the fight that only those of us who lived it, can truly understand 😉

Slight delay – Whiplash

Hi Guys

So today this post comes to you typing with one hand.

After the simple act of flicking my hair back in the shower … I heard and almighty crunch and doctors have confirmed I have Whiplash !!!! Whiplash from flicking my hair …. what’s it made from … rocks !!!

Anyways this now means I am on a nice cocktail of Co-codomal, Diazepam and Naproxen … aka will be sleeping all the time !! Strict instruction to move very slowly and minimally over the next 5 days. No drawing or driving allowed.

Unfortunately this does mean no Perry Winkle updates this week,  but when all is well, we will come back with pages worth waiting for, i promise
