“Everyone you will ever meet knows something you dont”.
I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel to different countries, sometimes alone, sometimes with colleagues. I have met some remarkable people – clinicians, scientists, voluntary organisations, and above all, patients and their families. It has been a humbling experience to witness their courage, their hope, their struggles, and, more often than not, their successes.
I am also very grateful to colleagues who have given up their valuable time to accompany me on these visits; their presence has immeasurably enriched the experience.
