I have just read the most moving article about Dame Deborah James who sadly lost her battle to bowel cancer last month. She was a Mum, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a broadcaster and the most prolific campaigner who shared her experience of cancer to raise awareness and break down taboos and barriers and to allow people the chance to talk openly about cancer.
I am in absolute awe of what this amazing woman achieved in her lifetime, a life that was cut short by this cruel disease. Deborah was also a planner. She set up the Bowelbabe fund and she leaves the most poignant and valuable legacy. I can just imagine how proud her family must be of her achievements and rightly so… No on really knows how they will react to such news of cancer. Some, I expect, might dig their heads in the sand as its all frankly “too much” and some go into “let’s get organised” mode.
