"There's a myth that anyone who has a liver problem has brought it on themselves" This quote is from a Crohn's disease patient living with a blocked portal vein hoping for a liver transplant (Independent 31st Oct 2010)

'Real Story' published 9th Feb 2011

When I submitted my cancer leaflet feedback to the British Liver Trust (5th January post) the Trust sent me a form with guidance on writing a feature called ‘Tell Us Your Story’. Alongside giving them information about my diagnosis, treatment and support is a section I’m encouraged to fill to ‘really' tell your story. This story is to sit alongside the cancer leaflet.
This is the Mark III version after editing (very professionally by Lib, thanks Lib) and quite a bit of a re-write, much of it by T (thanks T).

NOW AT: http://www.britishlivertrust.org.uk/home/the-liver/liver-diseases/liver-cancer/real-story-fionas-story.aspx

There’s an optional section in the Trust form about talking to the media, including local radio or certain magazines such as 'Take A Break'. Alongside articles such as ‘Mosquitoes made me pregnant’ - are you serious???

The other magazine example was 'She'. Now if the deal includes a complete makeover with '50 expert anti-ageing beauty solutions' for accompanying photo, and an entry into 'The Inspiring Women Awards 2010", I might re-consider (only joking!).
