I’m only 32 years old and I have ‘incurable’ stage IV ovarian cancer. I’ve had six doses of chemotherapy and several organs removed in massive, extensive surgery. I went into remission for 14 months but now my cancer is back and I’m done with the poor prognosis offered to me by conventional medicine.
However, I’m not done with making memories and laughing with my wonderful husband; I’m not done with yoga; I’m not done with running; I’m not doing with walks in the woods or on the beach; I’m not done with holidays; I’m not done with adventures; I’m not done with movie nights, cinema dates or theatre trips; I’m not done with weekends away; I’m not done with days out; I’m not done with seeing my friends or playing with the children in my life; I’m not done with time with my family.
I don’t want to keep having my body bombarded with the cut/burn/poison approach that I‘m told will only extend my life by a couple of months, at the possible expense of months in hospital.
I still have a lot of living to do!…and I hope you can help…
I want to raise money to give me the option of alternative and complementary therapies that may (fingers and toes crossed) extend my life without reducing it’s quality!
In exchange, I will blog about the therapies I receive and give honest and open feedback about what is working for me and what isn’t. In a sense, I will be using my background as a PhD researcher to make myself into a mini research study (albeit a single case study!)
I already blog extensively about my journey to date and, in 2017, I was awarded ‘Health Blogger of the Year’.
Please support my endeavours and help me to not only live a longer and healthier life but also (and perhaps more importantly) shed light on the many alternative therapies available to people with ‘terminal’ cancer, in the same honest and unfiltered way that I share everything.
Me and my loved ones thank you from the bottoms of our hearts.
Love and Light, Fi xxx

In January 2016 I was diagnosed with non-genetic stage four ovarian cancer.
There is no stage five. At the time of diagnosis my cancer was terminal. I was just 30 years old.
Suddenly, everything I had identified as ‘me’ came to a stand still. In one moment, after months of pain, tests and assurances that it was “nothing to worry about”, my instinct had proved right and my worst fears had been realised.
I was lucky (for a while) and my cancer went into remission…it took six double doses of chemotherapy and having five of my organs completely removed and four others partically removed…and a lot of other complementary therapies like diet, supplement, yoga, reiki, body talk, body stress release…the list goes on!
Then, suddenly, in January 2018, I was told that my cancer is back.
Life had been great for just over a year and I even retrained as a yoga instructor (I now teach children and adults yoga and meditation)…then, over the festivites I had 2.5 litres of cancerous fluid drained from my lungs and my latest scans show a tumour on my right lung and one next to my left kidney.
