Zoe, wish mum

“Dear Alfie,

You stood in the living room, held an imaginary mic to your mouth and burst into song. ‘Hakuna Matata!... What a wonderful phrase. It means no worries, for the rest of your days…’

Dear Freya,

It feels like only yesterday that I got that call from mum to say you’d been taken into hospital, the last 4 years have been such a blur.

When you first started with the sickness, headaches and dizziness, I, nor any of our family, thought it was anything serious.

You hear all these stories about cancer but you never think it is going to happen to your own family.

I remember mum running up to me, I was volunteering at my local Brownie group and she told me the optician had found something behind your eyes.

Her face said it all. It all went so quickly – from then onwards, minutes turned into hours, hours into days, days into weeks and weeks into months which you spent in hospital.
