Welcome to the fight of my life

My name is Tommy Donbavand.  I’m a 48 year old full-time author, and I live just outside Manchester in the UK with my wife, Kirsty, and my two sons, Arran (17) and Sam (9).

On Thursday 10th March 2016, I was diagnosed with cancer.

I’ve set up this blog as a way of charting my battle against the disease.  I hope it will allow me to understand more about what it is I’m fighting, and what I will have to go through in terms of treatment.  I’m going to be open and honest all the way.

I also hope it will help other people who find themselves in a similar position.

I’m very lucky that I have my family at my side, and I’ll be including their comments in this blog as I go.  Cancer doesn’t just affect one person at a time.

I’d love to hear what you think of this project.  You can leave comments below individual blog posts, or get in touch using the information on the CONTACT page.  Whether you want share your story of someone’s battle with cancer, offer a tip for dealing with the disease, or you just want to say ‘hello’, all comments are welcome.

Now, if you will excuse me – I’ve got a fight on my hands…
