"All sorrows can be borne if you put them in a story or tell a story about them."

I have just watched some TV coverage of a cultural festival in Mozambique. A marimba-type instrument, that looked like a small canoe. Three guys playing it at the same time – so I measured my arm span, fingertip to fingertip, about 6.5 feet which makes the “marimba” about 20 feet or 3 metres long.
We are not medically trained. While we will endeavour to be as accurate as possible with medical information, we cannot accept responsibility for any errors. Medical details given apply only to our daughter, the form of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia she has and the treatment she is receiving. Please consult your doctor if you have questions or doubts of any kind
Our daughter, Kezia, came down with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia at the age of two years in 2006 and was evacuated to the UK for treatment. Mum, Nanda, accompanied her and later Nanda's son Jaime went to the UK. Dad, Angus, stayed in Africa earning to support them and periodically visited them. Kezia finished treatment in 2008 and the family returned to Sao Tome e Principe mid-2009. Kezia is doing fine and hasn't relapsed but won'nt be considered "clear" until 2013. Meanwhile Dad was made redundant - at the best of times he's a consultant, sometimes a teacher and often unemployed. Poor White Trash.
