The Big 5 - 0 approaches!!

Hello, me again!

In a few weeks time, just over 4 actually, I will hit the BIG 5-0 - yep, I'm 50! Quite looking forward to it actually. WHY? Well, there have been times over recent years when I didn't think I'd get here.

As some of you may know, I was diagnosed with womb cancer at the end of 2009 but I survived surgery, chemo and radiotherapy and I'm still here. Allbeit, in not great health, but at least I am still alive.

So reaching 50 is going to be an emotional day for me. I'm not planning any big party or anything like that. It will just be a quiet day of reflection and contemplation of the future.

One thing I am doing though that I want to shout about from the rooftops is continuing with the fund raising for Macmillan Cancer Support that I have been doing ever since I started this cancer journey.

I am still making and selling jewellery to raise funds but I have also decided to do something a little different as well.

Instead of giving me cards and gifts for my Birthday, I am asking family and friends to donate to Macmillan through my Justgiving page http://www.justgiving.com/Kaz-Molloy# It doesn't have to be a huge amount, (although that would be lovely) just the price of a card will do as every penny counts.

The target I have set is £150 - £50 for each year multiplied by 3 which is the number of years since I finished my treatment (which will be 5 days before my Birthday) so you can see that I will have lots to celebrate.

I hope that you will consider digging deep and adding a few pennies - it would mean a lot to me if you could.

Thank you. xxx
