The Touch Network provides a forum for people to talk about the experiences and issues they’ve dealt with and to inspire others.
One of this month’s guests, Stacey Heale, is a carer, mother, partner, academic, and campaigner. She is the partner of The Delays’ frontman and artist, Greg Gilbert. Following his diagnosis in November 2016 with bowel cancer it has been a very public experience, but one that has always been positive and inspiring.
She has now set up her own blog, Beneath the Weather, as ‘a place to discuss hard stuff that happens to humans’, allowing stories that don’t often get told their space to be heard. Her most recent blog is a piece of writing by Greg that recounts their recent meeting with his doctor about his prognosis.
