International Women’s Day

I realise I’m slightly behind the ball with this, as normal, but I have a few things to say about International Women’s Day. I know this isn’t strictly cancer related, but it is life-with-cancer related (because it’s related to all life!) and my tribe of girls I have found through cancer are just amazing, I…
