Lacuna Loft is excited to continue introducing more young adult voices! These great folks represent a variety of perspectives on the myriad of topics covered here at Lacuna Loft. Before everyone starts really getting into the nitty-gritty of all they have to say, we wanted to introduce them a bit. Without further ado, here is Allie!
Hello! I’m Allie, a freelance writer from Wales, UK.
A month before my 15th birthday, I was diagnosed with osteosarcoma – a rare form of bone cancer. I was given nine months of chemotherapy and had major surgery to replace the affected bone with a titanium joint. After overcoming cancer and learning to walk again, I continued my studies and last year, I graduated with a Masters degree in Creative Writing!
I blog about pretty much everything on my lifestyle blog and I’ve also set up a cancer advice website called Those Three Words to help others during their treatment and afterward. Having cancer has taught me to appreciate every little moment in life and I love to spend time with the people who mean the most to me. You can usually find me writing, reading, or eating lots of cake.
