About Me

Sophie passed away on Monday 14 December but this blog was very important to her in her last few weeks. We will add the last few things she wanted to post so please do continue to read and comment in her memory. --------------------------------------------------------------------- On Wednesday 25 November 2009 I was diagnosed with cancer. This blog shares my stories, thoughts and fears about treatment and my hopes for the future.

One year on...

Just a note to apologise for not updating the blog for a long while. It is wonderful to know that so many people do keep checking it and I hope that re-reading Sophie's posts has brought a smile to your face as it does for me on hard days.

We have a video Soph recorded for this blog that we never got to upload, which I'll put up later today if I can make the tech work! For now I just want to thank all of you who have already contacted Mum, Dad, Iain, Kofi, Cali, Jag and I to let us know you are remembering Sophie in an extra special way today - one year on from her sudden passing on 14th December 2009. There are lots of cupcakes being made which is great as I think we all need a little sugar rush in this cold weather.

If you have any special memories of Soph you'd like to share please do post them here - it is always wonderful for us to hear other treasured memories from friends.

Light a candle, say a prayer, eat a cupcake, tell everyone special you love them.

Thank you. Alex. xx

  1. Hi Malc, Rosie, Alex, Jag and Iain.

    I know it seems like we haven't seen each other for a very long time, and a year ago is a long time I suppose but it seems to have flown by!

    I hope things are all o.k with the family and Alex, I hope you and Jag are enjoying your life together so far.

    Hopefully we can get in touch over Christmas sometime and catch up, even if it is through the form of a letter.

    Not a day goes by that issues revolving cancer arise, whether in the media all the way through to facebook status'. I miss Sophie all the time and although I don't have a massive collection of memories with the family there are a few I will never forget. One in particular that always makes me smile is from back in the days when Nana was still here and we all went to thurstaston common. Sophie's curly ginger hair blowing about in the gale force winds is something I'll never forget!!

    I would love to get in more regular contact, apart from birthdays and christmas!

    Lots of love from Em x x x
