Category: Bilbo’s Journey

Bilbo’s Journey is about our journey and how we are dealing with having a child with cancer.

In October 2018 it was with the heaviest of hearts, we shared the news our amazing gorgeous Bilbo, had been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL).

We’ve been overwhelmed with love and kindness from across our friendship groups, our family and complete strangers. We are under the Kamran ward team at John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford. We are getting the very best possible care.

To stop us from having to repeat and tell so many people pretty exhausting news and updates we’re updating those who want to know through our blog. Godbers Travel was a travel blog, a living breathing online memory book for our boys. We see this as an unexpected journey we need to complete before our normal travel can resume.

I hope you will find our posts honest and frank as we try to give you insight into what life is like for a family and child with cancer.

How Workplace by Facebook tried to use cancer to get a sales lead…

I’m stumped as to why Workplace by Facebook could even think about using my story and my blog as an opportunity to make a sales pitch.
