Hey there! Welcome to Mike and Jojo’s most recent adventure! Due to the COVID 2020 lockdown we found ourselves short on exciting experiences, so we decided to have a baby and an all out brawl with cancer (aka The Dust).
On July 29th 2020 Mike was diagnosed with stage 4 Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL). Cancer is a dirty word and we have decided not to use it. Mike has dubbed DLBCL “The Dust”. On this blog we will share our journey with you as we "Crush The Dust".
Finding out that you have The Dust, and your first child is due in 6 weeks, is an experience that cannot be easily described in words. However, the extraordinary amount of love and support that we have recieved from family and friends near and far has been the greatest gift. Thank you for joining us on this adventure and for making it the most beautiful experience we have ever had.
