“My name is Charlotte Crowl and I grew up around Essex and East London. After undergoing cancer treatment (Lymphoblastic Lymphoma (non-hodgkins stage 3) for over 2 years when I was 17, my whole perspective of life changed. After undergoing serious mental and physical side effects I was unable to just go back to living out the same life I had before cancer. Whilst on treatment I had an extremely rare side effect where one of the drugs paralysed me and I had to learn to talk and walk again. The Doctors didn’t know if it was possible but with positivity and a strong mindset I did it. My walking is not 100% yet but I believe one day it will be.
I feel like I have now found my true purpose and i’m on a very self fulfilling journey. I spend much time researching how I can get back to being the best version of myself, I then love to share my knowledge to help others. I am know fully dedicated to helping others not have to experience what I have been through. I love to inspire others by sharing my journey and new found knowledge.
I am the founder of Pure Helps To Cure CIC and Author of Cancer | The Hidden Truth. I am a young cancer survivor trying to raise awareness of the implications of not taking care of our health, and how to stay healthier through lifestyle and diet.
I love sharing my story to encourage others and give them hope. All the profits from my book go to vetted cancer charities and projects”.
