My name is Michaela, I am 49 years old, married, one lurcher called Harry, no children. I love singing and found this gold mine of songs to sing. Great!!!
It gives me a fantastic outlet for my feelings and also hours of distraction from feeling down and/or scared. In 2006 I was diagnosed with retroperitoneal liposarcoma, a very rare cancer, which turned my and my family's lives upside down.
I have had 2 major operations and radiotherapy, lost my left kidney and left colon in the first op and after all this I enjoyed a year in complete remission.
In May 2009 a ct scan revealed a third tumour near my right kidney which now appears to be inoperable after I went into kidney failure at the beginning of June and had to have an emergency operation to save my life.
BUT despite all this and the pessimism of my doctors I am determined to beat it again and for good this time!
Singing is a great therapy and it is so nice to have friends here on singsnap, so this is going to help with my recovery.
But please keep your fingers crossed for me
With very best wishes to everyone. Michaela x
Despite a few probs with kidney infections which can occur quite easily through a stent, I am still around and enjoying life. Got a lot to do often, that's why I haven't been on Singsnap lately.
