Guest Writer – Alex What an amazing journey

Hi Family, Friends and followers.
This morning I’m lying next to my amazing wife after a few tough weeks in hospital. She is resting and pain free. Anoula’s disease has recently taken a huge toll on her health and energy, but it has not had the slightest impact on her courageous attitude.
I am laying here with mixed emotions of sadness, ease and content. I am extremely proud of Her. Anoula’s travelled on a journey of self healing all while helping and inspiring others but never complaining. We always said she could write her own story and what she has chosen to include in this story is a reflection of the real Anoula. Traveling on the bus with her has been truly inspirational with life moments that most will never experience. It has brought the best out of both of us and made the A team even more.
The tidal waves of support from all of you makes us both feel incredibly fortunate and I appreciate Feeling fortunate in this type of situation would not be a common emotion.
Last night we met with Anoula’s world leading oncologist. To simplify and avoid the medical jargon, Anoula’s story is in it’s final chapter. We are able to make her comfortable during this time. This, including the fact that all of Anoula’s wishes have been acted upon and all the medical avenues have been explored, makes me feel comfortable as well.
I ask that everyone takes a moment today to send Anoula some thoughts, well wishes, prayers, positive energy or what ever you have in your arsenal to boost and her give her complete confidence for her new beginning.
I thank you all for following Anoula’s incredible journey and apologise if this post isn’t up to the usual standard. The guru can’t type or advise me in the functionality at this time.
Best
Alex

Sadly this journey has reached its destination but we take strength from her determination, her courageous spirit her zest for life and the undying love she had for her family and friends.

  5. Hi Anoula,

    Paul King forwarded Alex’s email/post and I am so grateful for that; and now the ability to drop you a short note. There is little that I can write that makes a physical difference, but I know when we spoke last year, you inspired me to make a change. I am eternally grateful for the inspiration.

    Thanks to Alex, although I never met you, thank you. I worked with Anoula at Celgene while up in China and in Sydney.
