This is Tony Kempster's blog in which I, or my wife Anne, will try to keep you up to date with the current news of my health.

On June 16th I was diagnosed with bowel cancer and a secondary cancer on my liver.

This came as devastating news and I have been overwhelmed since then by the number of cards, good wishes, email messages, forum messages etc. that we have received.

As people keep asking how I am, I thought I would set up a blog so that we can keep people informed about my progress as all your good wishes help keep my morale up.
