‘To me, the cancer journey felt like being in the eye of a storm. Having very little control over what was happening, learning how to hold on, withstand, and trust, until eventually the storm is over, and we are left to pick up the pieces that remain and figure out how to put them back together again.

A personal connection with the vibrant lotus flower emerging from the mud inspired the choice of this tattoo: when we emerge from a place of such darkness and loneliness with hope, strength and grace, nothing is more powerful.
