I’m a BBC correspondent for the national news but I haven’t always been based in London.
After surviving cancer eleven years ago, I came up with my List for Living. The things I’d always wanted to do. I decided I wanted to work abroad instead of just dreaming about it.
I finished chemo and within weeks later I was in Moscow.
I came back to Britain because I missed my friends and family. I also wanted a more normal life. And that was what I was trying to do until I was diagnosed with cancer for the second time.
I spent almost a year fighting the stupid disease and blogging all the way. I thought I’d won but I was wrong.
Now I’m living with the stupid cancer. I’m not terminally ill but it will kill me. I have months, maybe a few years left. To make the most of that time, I have a new List for Living.
