Hi my name is Mark Nicholson. In 2016 after a successful Cancer op my oncologist informed that what they had operated on was my secondary cancer and they couldn’t find my primary cancer. this was despite the running the full veterinary list: Pet Scan, Cat Scan and the Lab Tests. He is a funny man.. I asked what he would do if he was me. He said “Well if I was you, I’d do my bucket list just in case. At that moment ‘The JUSTIN CASE Farewell World was Born’. Took a few years from conception through inception, a painful birth through to a faux maturation. But is my blog of what happened covering off survivor guilt, doubt and the process of travelling the world staying boats sheds and a wonderful week with lesbian llama farmers in the Sierra Nevada’s. Please let me know if you would like to share my blog on your site!
