“I know that you cannot live on hope alone, but without it, life is not worth living. And you…And you…And you…Gotta give em hope.” ― Harvey Milk, The Harvey Milk Interviews: In His Own Words
Another interesting debate for any an evening.
I am currently living on hope. I’ve questioned my soul on many an occasion and many a level since my diagnosis – but the conclusion I’ve arrived at for the past few months, is that I need to live with hope. I agree whole-heartedly with the quotation above.
Whilst I keep one foot firmly planted in reality, the other is firmly planted in hope for the future.
Surely after all we’ve been through lately that there must be better days on the horizon? Who knows? But, given a choice – I choose hope.

"My whole world turned upside down when i was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in June 2012. It’s been a massively steep learning curve for both me and those closest to me. I'm hoping that writing this blog will help me work through the necessary adjustments in my life, and provide a chance to keep those that are interested up-dated with my progress. Just so you know, I'm writing under a pseudonym because i want to protect my close friends and family. So, here i am. Jane Knight"
