WHAT IS THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RINGLETS?


In January 2015, following a routine check by my vigilant GP, I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer.

As a Brit living in Sydney, Australia since 2008, I realised over the following days just how many of my friends and family were scattered across the globe and different timezones.

The Fellowship of the Ringlets was originally just a tremendous pun and the title of a closed Facebook group I created to keep those distant friends and family in the loop and worry-free.

But over 12 months, my little group somehow grew from 80 to 800+ and became a veritable band of brothers, a support team like no other and a true Fellowship in every sense of the word.

Their love, laughter and rallying cries have been the greatest tonic a little ringlet'd cancer-face like me could have wished for.

The following letters, musings, incoherent ramblings and occasional bouts of bad language are for them all.

Welcome to the Fellowship of the Ringlets.

* WHO WORE IT BEST? THE CLAN MEETS WIGGY

Dear Fellowship,

It is always better to laugh than go 'waaaaah' so on the eve of evil-sounding chemo #4, I thought I'd share this pic of my loving family getting involved in some comedy wig action at the weekend. 
My bro liked Wiggy's work a bit too much, as you can probably tell from the pouting. As for Mum, there really are no words. Largely as we couldn't get any out from laughing too hard...
See you on the flipside of #4, my friends!

Love,
