Giveaway items- Dear Chronic Illness by Pippa Stacey, A5 notebook and sticky note set

Personal stories and advice for those juggling their studies and chronic illness is lacking. When I returned to University last year after a long break, I struggled to find others who had done the same. I’ve had two very different experiences whilst studying with a chronic illness. I would love to share your story on my blog to help those in a similar situation. Together we can live (and study) better with chronic illness.“- Katherine
