Thank you to my husband, family and friends
I will always, always remember and treasure the enormous amount of love and support I received from my husband, family and friends in Mallorca and from all over the world whilst I was going through treatment.
The love and support came in all forms. A daily phone call, text, WhatsApp message or voicemail would assure me people were thinking of me. A get-well card, letter or email would lift my spirit and the thoughtful gifts would bring a smile to my face.
Then there were the quotes, sayings and positive affirmations passed on; the jokes and photo montages that acted as a vital reminder of the richness of life and the value of laughter.
Bags of lemons and vegan meals were delivered to the house. Homemade freezer meals for Leila, my daughter, helped give me the rest I so needed. Girlfriends would accompany me to meet specialists and keep me company on dreaded treatment days, holding my hand.
The sweethearts who are my friends would look after Leila on outings I was unable to attend, make me laugh, teach me to love yoga, keep me company on walks, and simply pop in to share a green juice with me.
All of these heartfelt acts of love and compassion played an integral part in helping me stay positive, strong and smiling throughout one of the most difficult chapters in my life.

Thank you for allowing me to spread my wings and pursue my healing journey. Thank you for encouraging and believing in me. You made it all possible.
And to my family and friends. Thank you for simply being there. I will never forget the enormous amount of love, love, love you sent my way.
It makes me incredibly happy to be able to share everything I have learnt on this journey to wellness with anyone spending time in Mallorca. It seems unbelievably timely that we are launching exactly five years to the month of my diagnosis in June 2012.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
