2014 has seen me regain much of my health and fitness, spending time with family and friends (and Percy my pug), weekends away and going to Port Douglas for a nice holiday! And work wise I've been involved with the hospital committee, working with the Leukaemia Foundation's Light the Night event committee plus I have also started a business with my brother Matt. We make and sell a boutique range of perfumed soy wax candles (sorry I can't help sounding "markety")! It's called "Essence Four" and the website is www.essencefour.com.au (and I can't help giving it a plug)! It has helped me get back into work since it provides a flexible working environment and makes me feel like I am doing something good...everyone loves a good candle plus we donate 5% of the profits to the Leukaemia Foundation since they supported our family so much!
I have finally been able to pull together all of my ideas, writing and photos to create this website and connect it to the Facebook page; www.facebook.com/curepamela (don't forget to like it...I have plans to change the page name to "Ur the Cure" in the near future). And also a big thanks to my brother Andrew who designed the logo.
I have high hopes and believe it has great potential to make a difference. I hope that it can become a success and I will try my very best to make a positive change to see the percentages of those minority ethnic groups rise on the bone marrow registry. If it doesn't work (and I really hope this is not the case), well at least I know that I at least tried and that's all you can do in the end!
