The Swallows Head & Neck Cancer Charity
My life before Friday, 13th May 2011; I had recently remarried and was settling down to a nice life with everything to look forward to. I was working in Sales & Marketing management and really enjoying my life. Married with two step children and two from my previous marriage, children are everything as they keep you grounded.
My dreams for the future were to build to a happy retirement and enjoy life to the full.
