Hi, my name is Clare. I update here every Sunday (though lately it’s been Fridays). I am a Kindergarten teacher who returned to work in 2010 after a year off class. Instead of teaching I spent my days walking through corridors and sitting in hospital waiting rooms. My daughter had ALL Leukaemia, no sibling match, 7 months of chemotherapy (with all the complications that go with that) and finally an unrelated, bone marrow transplant in September 2009.
2010 was amazing, a rollercoaster ride towards recovery but we still have a long way to go. I never quite imagined how incredibly hard but deeply enlightening life could be. I invite you to join the conversation by leaving a comment. Tell me about you. I’d love to say hi and to know what brought you here. If you have questions feel free to ask me or check out the ‘Meet Me’ tab for my email address. I hope you find something helpful here and that you will be back.
