On my mind...

Recently I've had something on my mind and wanted to express myself. With the teenage cancer trust I do get some great opportunities but when people say I'm lucky for this it really bothers me, I only do really good things to try and balance out the really bad things that I go through and have experienced. I think if I didn't have these things to look forward to then I'd definitely struggle a lot more, especially psychologically. People may know of what I am going through but they don't know really, no one else sees everything that happens and knows everything that I go through

Music therapy

Music/ singing has always been a big part of my life, but in the past few months it has really helped me, especially the music therapy. Whilst in hospital I did music therapy with an amazing music therapist, this was very helpful during my stay in the hospital as it gave me a focus and I had something fun to do whilst feeling rubbish from treatment. After surgery, my voice changed as there was nerve damage- another cruel blow, but with the help of the music therapist I am working on retraining my voice. Nordoff Robbins is a great music therapy charity and their work is amazing, I can't thank them enough for helping me, please do all you can to support them.
