"People talk about the courage of cancer patients, and I do not deny that courage. I have been poked and stabbed and poisoned for years, and still I trod on" (The Fault in Our Stars).
My name is Alysha, I am 23 years young and a jolly ol' Brit! In 2010 I had my first cancer diagnosis, in 2011 I had my second. These diagnoses not only put a dent into my life plans, but also altered the course of my life completely.
However, they meant that I met some amazing people, had some fab experiences and have made friends that I will cherish forever. They also led to new hobbies, hobbies that would eventually lead me to write my my blog, Life.Love.Flowers and become a part of the My Trending Stories Community! When you have no hair, eyebrows, or eyelashes and you can't do much, you can get a bit of a small fascination with makeup, skincare, travel, writing and anything that makes you feel normal and that's what I did!
I am currently studying at the University of Derby and I am terrified of spiders. I love ice cream, books, travelling to far off lands and attempting to write.
"One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple" (Jack Kerouac), but until that day comes, I hope that I do an alright job along the way.
