I want to share an inspirational 'story' with you and I hope the link below actually works (me and computers and all).
Last night on our X Factor auditions was a guy Karl Dimachki who had tongue cancer 15-18 months ago. He has had a hemiglossectomy and neck dissection and in spite of being told he would never sing again, and not be able to speak for 3 or 4 years, there he was competing in a national 'talent quest'. He was wonderful. I hope you're able to see it and that you get the same tingles I got.
Love to all
PS Thanks so much for your help Tony (I hope I've got it right!!!)
