Malignant Melanoma

“Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.”

                                                                                                    St Teresa of Calcutta

Mother Teresa of Calcutta was canonised yesterday in Rome.  She dedicated her life to the poor and highlighted how one person can create LOTS of small ripples that promote a HUGE change.

We may not create such a change in the world but we can ALL make a difference.

I was very moved this week by Ali Wilford who shares her journey with malignant melanoma in her series:

Diary of a Mole Part 1  

 Diary of a Mole Part 2 

 Diary of a Mole Part 3 

 Diary of a Mole Part 4 

 A Good Restart

I am sure Ali has inspired many through sharing her journey.

  1. I found this post to be quite inspirational! Because it’s absolutely true. It may not feel like that we’re making a difference by blogging of our experience with mental illness on here, but if everyone had that mindset the stigma would be a lot worse than it currently is in my opinion.

  2. Brigid, you are the second blogger I read today with the quote about ripples. I had never heard that one, but my favorite saying of Mother Teresa’s is somewhat similar and has always inspired me. It is “I cannot do great things, but I can do small things with great love.” Thanks for your post and sharing other ‘s stories as well. Jo

  3. Thank you, Brigid. It has has always both inspired me and made it feel possible to tackle issues. No matter who we are or what we are responding to, we can bring a loving presence to it. I hope it touches some else through your blog. Jo
