The chair

30 Dec 2013

Please don’t sit in her chair,

It makes me ache that she is not here.

Two Christmasses gone,

Her place at the table will never be forgotten.

I know you are a nice person,

Not wanting to hurt me –

But when I see you sitting there,

You tear a little piece from my heart.

Living with Mom’s cancer




I am a scientist and a blogger. I have a PhD in the genetics of cardiovascular risk. My Mom died of cancer last year. We learnt a lot and met some amazing people. I want to share with others how to live positively with cancer, and make choices in end-of-life care. My top tip: Ask the difficult questions.
