Chris Lewis talks about his experience of living with stage 4 Mantle Cell Lymphoma for over 12 years.
Until July 2007 Chris was a self-employed Business Consultant. It was then that Chris was diagnosed with a rare blood cancer and given only six months to live! After aggressive chemotherapy and a stem-cell transplant Chris was surviving the terrible disease.
"I saw how poor the cancer support sector really was, being so disjointed and not really addressing any practical issues, that I decided to talk out about it to see if I was the only one who felt that way. I wasn’t, and very quickly friends of mine had started me a website dedicated to cancer patents to help spread the word.
This site is now the most popular cancer blog in the UK and I am frequently invited to speak around the world about my experiences. I can now use my influence to change things for everyone affected by cancer, and I have been able to start a unique charity SimPal that gives free phones and sim cards to anyone affected by cancer. The only charity of it’s kind in the world".
