Melanie Green

Melanie was my guest on Thursday March 17th 2022. We discussed her cancer diagnosis back in 2018, the subsequent treatment and the day she got the all clear.

We talk about how having cancer led to blogging which has since been developed into a book and a publisher is being sought.  Anyone reading this that knows of or is indeed a publisher then please get in touch.

Mel tells us how hairdressing ultimately led to a degree in psychology and how after her husband’s (Big G) own battle with cancer they’ve decided to travel the world.

An inspirational lady who despite telling me “I don’t think I have much to say” certainly had a lot to say 🙂
