Ellen's Profile

Biography

I am a 42 year old mum of three ( ages 14,12 and 9). Ian a non smoker, drink alcohol rarely and am relatively fit. Despite working as a GP ( family doctor), I had never come across anyone with tonsilar cancer before and particularly in the "young" and non smoking groups. I have enjoyed reading other people's stories, and realise there are those much younger and much worse off than me.
