Living with Mesothelioma –My Diary– A cold but wonderful Sunny day -lovely for a walk


Morning it is so much milder today -if a little wet but the heavy frost of last night and the very cold temperatures have changed.

My friend has snow in Scotland but then we always expect snow in Scotland. Why is that such a surprise then.

So very quiet and the wind was very calm we just heard the lapping of the waves and the birds.

Rabbits were even out hopping about eating in the afternoon sunshine.

We cam back to a wonderful warm home and stayed in only opening the door again to take in the delivery of our on line shopping that we had ordered. A sort of Christmas hamper

Today there is a  Bill coming up in Parliament today by Lord Saatchi  He explained that the aim of the bill is to “cure cancer” by encouraging innovation in medicine.

He explained that the aim of the bill is to “cure cancer” by encouraging innovation in medicine. Work towards the Medical Innovations Bill, began one year ago – only months after his wife Josephine Hart died from a form of ovarian cancer. The novelist, whose debut novel Damage sold more than one million copies, was 69 when she died.

“Will the bill cure cancer? No – but it will encourage the man or woman who will,” he said. “At the moment, the law is disincentive to innovation – the current law is a barrier to progress in curing cancer.”

The bill, which sets out measures doctors should take to make “responsible innovation”, will encourage advancement as well as deterring reckless medics. It has received backing from many medical professionals and legal experts.

Professor Alan Ashworth, chief executive of The Institute of Cancer Research, said: “I fully support Lord Saatchi’s Bill which highlights an important issue. If we are to improve outcomes for cancer patients it is essential that clinicians are free to innovate as long as appropriate safeguards are in place.”

I will watch with interest
