My apology if you’ve received this post twice. The lay-out tool didn’t want to co- operate today.
For already eight months my cancer treatment continues. I experienced highlights and extreme low points. But never has the urge to travel left me.
I read many travel reports with envy. I could smell the taiga and tundra, and I promised myself that I will, someway or other, get my bum moving again.
After the previous treatment the aggressive melanoma tumor decreased in size slightly. Next Tuesday I will know how my situation is halfway through the new treatment.
What are my plans now?
1. I want to raise funds for our local cancer support group, the Magrietjies. I know when I reach the end of the road they will be there to comfort me.
Please, keep a few Rands apart for when I start this campaign. I know there are so many good reasons to support many other groups. Please do so. Support our Magrietjies only when you feel the urge to do so.
2. Three ladies and I are organizing a cheese and wine evening with beautiful music. That will take place on Saturday 9 November. This will also be on behalf of the Magrietjies. Please mark this date on your calendar. I will soon put all the information on the blog. Please support us there!
3. I still want to do a last tour on the KLR to raise more support for the Magrietjies. It all depends on how much time I have left over. What about a ride from SA up to Ethiopia and then turn back after having the best coffee?
Except for these dreams I still have a few surprises up in my sleeves. But then you have to be there on the 9th November!`
