Hi, I’m Naomi! Until recently I was a Train Controller by day and a writer, proofreader and editor by night. I enjoy camping, road trips, correcting people’s grammar, coffee and hanging out with my awesome little family – my partner (also called Naomi!) and our 4 year old foster son.

In May 2016 I was diagnosed with appendix cancer (appendiceal mucinous adenocarcinoma to be specific!) so have been at home coming to terms with the side effects of chemo and transitioning from a shift worker to someone with a world of time on their hands!

While this isn’t a cancer blog, part of it’s purpose is to document my experience with cancer. Appendix cancer is rare and I found it difficult to find information on personal experience. If I can help someone else feel a little less alone well, isn’t that what the Internet is for?

Feel free to get in contact via any of the technological means on the site and enjoy reading!
