Having trawled the cancer charity sites I found a list of insurers who claim to cover nasty illnesses.

It turns out they won’t cover me.  So any travelling I do will not have insurance for cancer related events.

Chris has been told to leave me behind if necessary!  I’m not sure he’s comfortable with that.

My employer very generously granted my request for garden leave.  That triggered a confidence to start booking stuff.  More to follow.
