"Whom among us can doubt that smiles rule when life is at its harshest or that the sun shines down on us and lights up our soul when we turn another corner?
Today, I go into hospital again for another blood transfusion. During the past month, I have felt better than I have since starting my cancer treatment sixteen months ago. I am looking forward to seeing my friend, Chris De Burgh at the Newcastle concert this coming weekend and attending the Haworth 1940s festival the week after, followed by a month's visit by my son William from Australia the week after that.
In fact, I'm smiling and am waiting for the sun to return to my heaven and shine down again after this week's terrible weather has decided to depart us." William Forde : May 6th, 2015.
