A Warrior's Words: Cancer Through Poetry

A Warrior's Words: Cancer Through Poetry

If you had told me when I set up fund raising for Macmillan, I would return to it to raise funds to self publish a book of cancer poetry... I'd have laughed. That's crazy, with more deserving causes out there! (So please, give to them first, not me.) Yet, here I am...I've been writing now through my cancer journey for 18 months. My poems are simple, using everyday language but they are raw, compassionate, honest, funny, educational, heartbreaking, uplifting, inspiring... all descriptions from those who have read them. My poetry is a 'warts and all' journey through my battle with Triple Negative breast cancer. I want to raise awareness for this brutal cancer and help anyone who has had cancer in any way, cross their path. I've been publishing them freely through A Warrior's Words on Facebook having reached thousands already. I try to speak for us all but I'm no poet laureate, it's poetry in a style anyone can understand and empathise with. So here I am, finally trying to do what hundreds have asked me to do so often... publish! Let them be more accessible, a book that can be held or as an ebook on Kindle. But I need help, please! The cost is £790 I just don't have and I'm hoping I can gain a little support to raise this, from having already published them online so far. I've chosen to self publish through Kindle Book Publishing. I'm hoping to find sponsorship with a breast cancer charity linked to Triple Negative breast cancer also; so a percentage of every sale goes towards finding a cure for this rare and cruel killer of so many women. The book will be dedicated to the many people who have supported me throughout this journey, but mainly it will be dedicated to Julie Ainsworth, my beautiful friend who lost her battle and was the inspiration for so many of my poems. Julie I miss you everyday. If this book can help just one or even help save the life of one, through raising awareness of Triple Negative breast cancer, it will have done it's job. Thank you x

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!With just 1-click you can contribute to an entrepreneurial business idea* Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secure* Why Leetchi.com? It's easy & transparent!Thank you! Hi folks, I’m a young pharmacist who has grown tired of making money and sacrifices for other people. I’ve always wanted to start my own business because I believe i can be the best in anything I do.  I’m totally committed to never working for another person ever again, so much so that I left a great job and great wages to pursue my dream of being a business owner with nothing to lean back on. My friends, family and fiancé told me I was crazy, with a wedding to pay for and a house to build I was in the bad books with everyone. I just knew that if i didn’t leave then, I’d have stayed in my steady job and settled for less than im worth. Since then I’ve been offered a number of permanent jobs, good jobs, and turned them down. All because I know I’m destined for more than a number 2 role, and as an emoloyee, that’s as high as I can go. I want to open my own chain of aesthetic practices throughout the UK and Ireland. I believe this line of work is about more than altering looks, it’s about restoring and rebuilding confidence. I don’t just want to open an aesthetics clinic, I want to be the gold standard for them! As you can guess, the courses I need to do are very expensive and at 25 I haven’t the funds built up to go it alone.  Any donation will will be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance for believing in the dream!  Niall
