I don’t envy anyone coming into contact with cancer in any way, it is a traumatic experience wherever it goes. We, as a group of writers want to do what we can to help fight this disease on every level. This anthology has seen sweat and tears, it has demanded dedication, concentration and indeed, frustration at times. While I don’t envy anyone being the one who has to decide things, I’d do it again in a heartbeat if we can provide just one extra Macmillan Nurse to help someone through. I’d like to thank Damyanti who didn’t know me until this came about and yet, her willingness to give up her time and effort in the support of this cause has been admirable. I’d also like to thank each and every one of the authors, editors, artists and designers who made this possible. There are some very special people who put this together – doing what they do to help other special people, those we hold dear. You’re Not alone.
