Walk Me Home: My Article for the BC Cancer Agency

Hi there,

Feeling proud* of the article ‘Walk Me Home’ I wrote for the BC Cancer Agency, so wanted to share it with you all.

(*happy, nervous, sad, grateful)

Afterthought: I realize now that the trepidation came in knowing the audience of this publication…those living with a brain tumour and their families. I recall being given this brochure every time I went to the BCCA and skim reading it; far more pressing matters were at hand. What my article says is the reality nobody wants to hear; that so, so many people die of a brain tumour. Who wants that kick in the pants? All the time while writing it I felt such sadness for the potential readers, remembering what it was like to be on the other side of all this.

  1. Beautiful article Becky. You should feel quite proud of it, actually I’m proud of it for what THAT’s worth! 😉 It’s brilliant advice and I love the pictures. I’m missing you, hope you come back sometime soon so we can walk, talk and eat! Remember the Murphy bed – it’s comfy! xoxoxo

  2. Becky your writing always moves me and leaves me with thoughts, images and questions swirling around my head. It is heartbreaking to read but I am so glad that you share your deeply personal account with us
