About Lorraine

My name is Lorraine Villalba.  I live in Adelaide, South Australia.

This blog has been created so that I can share my journey with others in hopes that it will help them in whatever way possible in their life’s journey.

My thanks to my Husband, Gerry, my loving family and many friends who supported me and kept the faith during my illness.  As well, I thank all my China friends and medical Doctors and hospital staff.

It is said that life is a journey – here is part of my journey.

    We read her bliog, but was unable to talk to anyone face to face. We tried to talk to Annette, but were unable to meet her personally as she was to run to China in hurry. I would appreciate if you could leave your phone so I could ring you. Please also suggest the best time to ring you.

    Hi Lorraine,

    Your journey is inspiring and I have referred your blog to family of mine who’ve recently been notified of this terrible cancer within their family.

    Thanks again for sharing and making a difference to other people’s lives

    Hi Lorrane,
    I also went to China in December this year and had ACTL. It was in Beijing. People were very nice, but hospital environment was very different frm what you describe. I was the only English speaking patient, so communication was difficult. If I have to go back, I’ll go to your centre. Treatment worked, I think. I haven’t had my CT yet
