In November Seka was diagnosed with lymphoma, and in December had an operation to remove the cancer. She is about to start a series of chemotherapy as well as radiotherapy. For those interested, further details are on the link below


Thanks for all your support through these last six years, hope to see you once again, in the not too distant future.
