"Recent studies have shown that 20% of breast cancer is discovered by self examination rather than mammography and we must realize that cancer is not a respecter of persons. It could happen to anyone, even I Annie Idibia.

What would you say to someone battling with cancer? 

I'd never say "I know how you feel" because I don't. I personally love to write out some of my favourite quotes. I mean write in the literal sense of it. When I’m having a bad day there is something about pulling out a card or jotter, seeing handwriting, reading a message. It’s just more personal than seeing it on a screen. Real paper, real writing is very soothing. What say you? 

Be positive. Be inspired. Be encouraged.
