Tick tock...

With just six hours to go before “The C-Word” finally hits our screens and our favourite lady becomes an international superstar, it’s manic here. I’ve been feebly trying to keep up with the firestorm of tweets and newspaper articles that have been shouting about Lisa’s (and of course Sheridan’s) awesomeness, “The C-Word” is in the top 100 on Amazon.co.uk (I [ahem] assume you lot have already bought it though, right?) and my phone is buzzing like a power surge in an Ann Summers warehouse.

Lisa Lynch, today is your day.

Today’s the day that everyone gets a piece of what you’ve achieved, everybody gets a snapshot of what it meant to know you, to have you as part of our life and to try to keep up with you.

You’d be loving it right now, you great media tart.

For all the media firestorm though, it’s worth saying that the one thing I was afraid of hasn’t transpired. A while back I’d dug myself a hole of anxiety thinking that watching Sheridan on screen was going to be too tough, that it was all a bit too raw. But that fear isn’t there anymore. Of course, the fact that, yes, I’ve already seen it probably has something to do with that, but right now all I really feel is just bloody proud. I’m so bloody proud of you Mac, but I’m also proud of me, that I’ve been able to be a part of this barmy rollercoaster, that I’ve been able to help continue Alright Tit for you since you stepped out of the room to lord it up in blogger-Valhalla.

And most of all Lisa, you are going to SAVE LIVES tonight. As if you weren’t awesome enough.

Tonight isn’t a night for sadness. You and Sheridan are doing a tip-top job of keeping the PR love going, and as far as this blog goes, alrighttit.com feels alive right now. I shall make sure it stays that way.

Love you bird.

Jonze.

I first came across Lisa's blog in January 2012. I had been looking for some advice and help after finding out my mum had breast cancer that night. From the moment I read that first post I was struck by how brilliantly she was. I have followed this blog ever since and will watch tonight with love, an inspiring woman, that although I have never met, through her words, has helped me in more ways than I can ever explain xx

gemmak said...

There is nothing I can add, nor would I try. Fantastic post for a fantastic lady. Go Lisa! As the post says 'today is your day'. xx

Alan Caddick said...

I was watching The C Word on BBC One, and I found it to be very moving about Lisa's No Nonsense look at Cancer, and laugh it off.

Se Eun Yang said...

I haven't read blog yet. I am going to do after finishing the show: The C-Word at BBC.
I was diagnosed a stage three of the breast cancer 2007 when I was 33 and have done A full set of treatments brilliantly. But I was a coward who were too busy to hide the bullshit.
Fortunately, it seems all fine until now. However the bullshit is still in somewhere of my mind most of time.
I have to say. Lisa, you are amazing!
Take care! The bullshit can't beat us

Tracy Bell said...

Watching The C Word in tears but laughing too. Thank you it's bringing heartbreak for me, losing Mum two years ago I thought I wouldn't be able to watch, but am. Will read the blog too xxx

HPW said...

Just watching The C Word. Off to buy the book tomorrow. What an inspirational and courageous lady Lisa was.

HPW said...

Watching The C Word on BBC 1. What a truely courageous and inspirational lady Lisa was. I hope her family and friends are happy with how Lisa was portrayed tonight. For me, Sheridan Smith, is an amazing actress. May Lisa's memory live on for everyone.

Trebling said...

Must have been living under a rock till tonight's moving drama. Will never look at a bottle of olive oil in the same way again. Words don't describe the roller coaster of emotion tonight but glad others have been helped and continue to be helped by such an inspirational lady.

Bernadette Addis said...

What an amazing woman I am in complete awe of you and your story I'm completely lost for words and I have no doubt this will change and save lives

Joanne Mcghee said...

Just watched the c word what an inspirational woman.

Dawn Crofts said...

Lisa, you were one brave lady and the way your story was portrayed in this programme left me tearful, speechless, sad, in awe and most of all feeling nothing but utmost respect. xxxxx

Mary Guy said...

I have just watched C Word and Lisa was a brave lady with a great family around her, thank you to her for sharing her story.

Rachel Walker said...

The C Word was totally amazing !, I have been in tears of sadness but mostly tears of laughter !! What an amazing lady you were Lisa it's been a pleasure getting to know just a snippet of you , what a inspiration !! I shall definitely be reading your blogs xxxxx

Brenda Feist said...

Amazing lady... cried and laughed as I watched the film...brought back maby memories and feelings...i hated seeing people walking and laughing in the street and remember thinking what were they laughing at when I was going through it...but Lusa you were brave enough to say it as it was...wish I had been..lots of love to you in heaven and your wonderful husband and family xxx

Margie said...

I absolutely loved the drama, I did not know about the blog before, I have atomach cancer and I was struck about how real the drama was, I could identify with South, particularly being told the cancer came back despite surgery to remove my stomach and post surgery chemo. I too wrote a blog, well done Lisa and well done all the family and friends who supported her, love Margie ❤️

Steven said...

An absolutely brilliant life - full of ups and downs. Lisa is missed by thousands all over, and The C Word has been a beautiful portrayal of her life. Sheridan has done a brilliant job.

The C Word (Book) is a fantastic read. The C Word (TV drama) is a bloody fantastic one-off.

Lisa, I may have never met you, but by reading your blog, your book and seeing your programme tonight, you have made me realise that you will be loving this. As Jonze said, you great media tart, this is for you.

Thank you for your words over the years, and I know you'll be looking down at us all crying here tonight thinking "oh you daft twats!", and that's why we all love you.

So, Lisa, you may not be here to share it with us, but we all know it's what you were, are and above all, would want.

Sheridan has done you proud!

Much love, always,

Ruairágh

What a stunning portrayal of a beautifully brave young woman. Truly admirable and courageous.Had me in tears but will go to bed tonight valuing life and my family just that little bit more....keep shining Lisa x

Alan Greppellini said...

What a great show
in the last 5 months I've lost my sister and best friend to cancer and now my sister in law has it in her brain. Life doesn't feel fair at the moment but seeing how those around lisa coped and at times didn't cope really struck a cord. Thank you family and friends of lisa for reminding me that strength is found from somewhere even when you don't think you have anything more to give x xx

newmanf1 said...

I've just finished watching 'The C Word'. Wow what an incredibly amazingly strong woman Lisa was. Thank you to her for sharing her story so candidly - I'm inspired to change the way I'm living because of you.

Little Mouse At Home said...

After watching this tonight I had to search for the blog and began to read.. what an inspirational woman sometimes some people say some things happen for a reason some people say we all have a purpose... wow all I can say is this girl had a purpose alright and whilst far too short a time spent here she left a legacy and that legacy will help inspire and save lives you all must be very very proud..... Sheridan what a bloody brilliant performance of such an emotive journey.. Bra bloody vo!! much love xx

Melanie F said...

I hadn't read Lisa's blog, or her book - being one of those fortunate people that hasn't been personally touched by cancer. About a week ago I saw an article on the upcoming programme and having been really moved by the article, watched the programme tonight. Amazing... inspirational and very sad. I hope some lives might be saved by people realising that 1. you don't have to be old to get cancer and 2. yes it can happen to anyone... Love and peace to Lisa's family xx

tan90ful said...

Having just watched the c word on bbc1 i cannot even begin to say how moved I am by your whole story and how well lisa handled everythin the bullshit threw at her. Such an inspiring story I am now looking for the book online where i don't need to wait for ages for it. Such a brave lady. Fly high angel and huge hugs to your family. Xx

Anne Williams said...

Wow is all I can say. What a truly moving, inspirational totally jaw-dropping programme. I am going through my own heart-ache at the moment - nothing in comparison to this - but watching this has given some inner strength I never knew I had and life is definitely way too short.

Anne Williams said...

Wow. I've just watched The C Word and it has left me speechless. What a truly inspirational, moving programme. Watching this has given me some inner strength to get through my own heartache - nothing in comparison to what Lisa went through. Why does this always happen to the good people. Life is definitely way too short but watching this has made me realise not to waste a single second.

ME mummy A said...

Extremely moving to watch & what an inspirational (& funny) friend you had. I lost a friend to the same several years ago & it's just so cruel. Thoughts with everyone affected x

Martine Rammell said...

What can you say, inspirational. I'm a secondary cancer member( don't want to use the word sufferer ) who just had to watch tonight. If it brings one thing to the world out side, let it bring understanding. It has already made my in laws aware of the grief, pain and damn right crap we chemolegends face every 3 wks. Lisa & Sheridan made thus happen..
Fabulous, Lisa will be so proud..
love xx

Debs W said...

Watched Sheridan Smith's portrayal of a courageous beautiful young lady. What a poignant, moving funny at times, heart breaking, but honest account of her journey. I cried but also smiled. What an extraordinary woman.

Sue Stringer said...

What can I say? But WOW!!! Amazing, beautiful, heartbreaking and so full of love!!

Thim said...

Saw Kris on yesterday's BBC 1's Breakfast programme. So inspirational. Took her advice and watched C Word last night.
Wow!

MBNAD woman said...

What an amazing programme. I hope that Lisa's family are proud of it and Sheridan Smith's portrayal of her.

Maria Williamson said...

The C word was bloody brilliant!! My mam fought cancer and thankfully is still with us, watching Lisa's story and Sheridans portrayal was so refreshing! What an amazing legacy to come out of the bullshit! (sorry for being cliché Lisa but your amazingness forces me to it)
Lisa you will not be remembered as a cancer patient, but as a fucking legend!

Anna Deniel said...

I cannot explain how I feel about last nights programme. My mum is terminally poorly with secondary bone cancer, she's been fighting for 3&half years now, she just found another lump under her arm and we are waiting for biopsy results. This touched me so much. Tears, laughter, admiration, inspiration. And a beautiful lady inside and out. I hate cancer, it's taken my dad 9 years ago, it's trying to take my mum, cruel horrible disease. Sleep well Lisa. Xxx

woolfish said...

I have just watched the c word and wow what an amaaaazing portrayal of an amazing girl/woman. Also a big congratulations to all Lisa's family and friends who were such a support.
Truly inspirational.

Tracey Eustice said...

I had been eagerly awaiting the screening of the C Word, having read the book over a year ago when fighting kidney cancer. I too, like Lisa had turned to writing down my innermost thoughts and feelings to get through this utterly crap time. Unlike Lisa though I didn't share my words with others - how selfish of me when I see how much this amazing, talented, strong woman has helped and inspired others and literally saved lives. Lisa, you've given me back a sense of purpose - thank you.

MissyTee said...

What an amazing, funny young lady! I watched the C Word last night and was blown away by the inspirational, funny beautiful Soul of Lisa...thank you for being you! Thank you for saving lives...Sending big love to all Lisa's family and thank you to Sheridan Smith for an amazing tribute to Lisa. God Bless Lisa, xx

Julie said...

What an amazing programme last night. What an amazing lady. What an amazing family. Thank you - that's all I can say. There are no words.

Sophie Brettell said...

Beautiful, poignant and so inspirational. An incredible legacy for a remarkable young woman. Sheridan's portrayal moved me to tears. God bless you Lisa. X X

Jan Holland said...

Just watched catchup as advised not to watch programme last night as on 5th session of chemo for breast cancer. Glad i watched it was inspirational. I have same thoughts and attitude as lisa, but i have 24 years life and wisdom on her, she was exceptional, i will now share my ownwords and thoughts for all other big c patients xxxx

Survivor said...

Watched the C word having read Lisa's book when I was going through Breast Cancer in 2010 at the age of 35. Lisa brought me through some very dark days and thank god I am still here just shy of my 5 year anniversary. I followed Lisa's blog on returning to work to help me through and was thrilled when she announced her book was hitting the big screen. I cried and laughed and it was like looking at a much loved friend even though I never met her, but she did share a comment I left on one of her blog posts which gave me a voice too. What a wonderful woman the world is a better place for having Lisa be part of it, if for a short time but a memorable one. My thoughts to her family and Pete, but she will continue to help people every day.

sharon dunn said...

Watching The C Word was something I was dreading as obviously never heard of the lovely Lisa before so like when your watching a drama or movie for the first time I didn't know the ending. So as I have a fear of death itself and a sufferer of severe anxiety wasn't sure what to do. So I thought id give it a shot as love Sheridan Smith and Paul Nicholls and having lost so many dearly loved friends and family to cancer its going to be full of so many emotions no matter what the outcome. I can only say how deeply transfixed I was through this whole film, I saw past Sheridan as now I was seeing your Lisa but also seeing and watching how my beautiful friend Beth must have been feeling through a cancer battle at 18 and whose family kept the news from me as I was so young. I hope that doesn't sound selfish mentioning my friend as we never got to say goodbye as they took her to live in Kent and when her letters stopped I wondered what was wrong. Anyway, I don't want to rabble but wanted to say that Lisa herself was obviously courageous, bright, loving, brave, admirable and inspiring to not just her family but now to billions of us around the world who have lost someone to Cancer or who are going through the fight themselves. I commend your family especially Lisa's husband who until the very end kept his vows they made on their wedding day and hope the blog and the fact that Lisa will live on in all of our hearts and minds can give him some comfort. He should be proud of the part he played in her life, the support that he gave and getting through the hardest days she had to face, he was always with her. I'm going to try and change my view on life as having severe anxiety stops me from doing a lot of things and that fear wont leave me straight away but each day I will give thanks for what I have and the people around me and hopefully soon try new things gradually fighting this condition to live life to the full. Please thank all your family for allowing Lisa's life story to be shown and take care of each other as its never easy losing a special someone in our lives.

Nikki Curran said...

I feel brave enough to read the book now. I lost my mum to cervical cancer, she was only 46. This programme felt so real but I managed not to cry. What a truly memorable lady you are Lisa, so unbelievably strong, an inspiration to all. What a legacy you have left. X

eveleen fox said...

I too have just watched the C Word and my Lisa you were one amazing woman... ive lost a few good friends and family too that awful Bull Shit... while watching i found myself in tears and laughter ... hence why im now drawn here to your blogs im reading also with laughter and tears words cant describe what an amazing women you were and your P was a very special lucky man to have married a woman like you ....Heaven does have a very special angel up there right now . X X X

Alan said...

C-word. What can I say, brought it all back. Chemo is a bitch. Getting cancer back a second time is a double bitch. Superbly played miss smith, Lisa would be proud of you. Have told all friends to watch it. RIP Lisa. You will not be forgotten

Helen McRae said...

Up until last night I didn't know who Lisa Lynch was and I didn't know her story or outcome. What an incredibly moving and poignant portrayal of an exceptionally brave lady. Sobbed all the way through it.

I'm a fundraiser for Cancer Research and have fundraised for the past 15 years, being the age that Lisa was when she first got her breast cancer diagnosis, its given me the drive and determination to carry on my fundraising and raising awareness.

Love and peace to Lisa's family.

Cuddly Cat said...

My 46 year old sister has survived breast cancer and I have lost another family member to cancer. My sister had a large piece of flesh taken from her back to make a new breast that didn't take. She was in so much pain. Thank God she has recovered. Lisa was so strong and her blog is amazing. Sheridan Smith did a very good portrayal of a cancer sufferer. I'll definitely buy The C Word book. God bless Lisa and her family.

Smiles and tears...That is how i feel right now after watching The C Word on tv..It`s rare in life to find such honesty but Lisa gave her all in the honest stakes and for that she will forever remembered. A shining light in a dark place, truly inspirational, shine forever special lady. You have a place in the heart of many.x

Amy Steed said...

I'm 31 years old and was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer 8 weeks ago! I was scared to watch the c word but forced myself and so glad I did. what an incredible story and women! I actually gasped when she lost her hair as I'm dreading losing mine. I keep calling myself three strand Cyril and singing let it go let it go lol! My humour is very similar to Lisa's and that's why her story as helped me! After watching the c word I ordered the book straightway, I will laugh my way through this journey as for me that's the only way! Big love to Lisa and her family for helping so many women through this bullshit xxx

Alex JP Scott said...

Inspirational...thank you...

Helen Walder said...

I sadly lost my mum to breast cancer in September 2013 after a long and courageous battle. I always knew she was a fantastic and inspirational person, someone I was so proud of. I saw the C Word advertise but was not sure if I could watch it, I'm so glad I did, as sad as it was, it's was also an in site in what my mum and dad went through. Sending a big hug to every courageous person who is fighting the bullshit. xxx

Teresa Morgan said...

I have just watched The C Word. Lisa Lynch, remarkable woman. I lost my sister to breast cancer 12 years ago. I cried watching the C Word & also smiled at parts which reminded me so much of my so much missed sister. The bullshit fight goes on & we all hope one day the bullshit will just do one...to Lisa Lynch & your family, my sister & everyone who as had bullshit in their lives, god bless x

Lorna Harris said...

Lisa lynch. It was a pleasure to be your friend, to have you as a friend, to share so many amazing times.
You had me at hello. Now the whole world knows how amazing you are.
I miss you more today than yesterday but not as much as I will tomorrow.
Forever Longstraws,
Your pal Lorna xxxx

Matilda Manners said...

Amazing lady...amazing story...amazing attitude. Your book and blog has helped millions and will continue to do so. The BBC did an amazing adaptation and I cried all the way through. A true inspiration and if it has taught me anything it is to check my boobs! We are not told to do it as teenagers...breast cancer is screened for in the over 50s not under 30s.

This will stay with me for a while. Truly touched a raw nerve!

God bless x

Harriet said...

I have just watched the C Word on catch up.....emotional and raw are not enough to describe but if Lisa, Pete and her family are anything like the actors who have so fabulously portrayed them (which I'm sure they are) I would love to have known Lisa and to know them. Such an inspiration and when you think that you have had a bullshit day or having a bullshit time of it......think of the bullshit and suddenly things don't seem that shit after all..........I lost my grandmother to the same bullshit so I can feel the pain as it was quite recently but certainly your film Lisa has put so many things into perspective. I wish you peace where you are now and to your parent's, your brother, sister in law, nephew and of course to Pete......I wish you all well. Thank you for sharing this with us xxxx

Nicki said...

I've just watched The C Word. Having lost my husband to cancer I expected it to be tough watching and even upsetting. Instead, it was inspirational. Oh I identified with the ups and downs, the chemo reactions, the silly things that trip you up along the way, but I also identified with Lisa's courage, which is what my hubby showed throughout. Thank you so much for sharing your precious Lisa with us.

Georgia Searle said...

What an amazing woman! So honest and true and so amazing.


I guess you are never too young - Check check check.

Kirsty St John said...

leonard Willis said...

I lost my wife Jackie just over 2 years ago to breast cancer after a 8 year fight it was hard watching the C-WORD but glad i did it reminded me off the good times we had while not knowing when it would go to the bones Sheridan Smith was outstanding playing Lisa all i can say is it was a big help

leonard Willis said...

cried and laughed at the same time brought back memories of my late wife who passed away 2 years ago of breast cancer glad i watched it Sheridan was out off this world

Unknown said...

Just watched The C-Word. Totally fab and funny and poignant and moving. Thank you Lisa.

Molly's Lips said...

I'd read about the C Word on Facebook, a friend had watched it and said it was brilliant. I sat with it loaded on iplayer on my screen, with my finger hovering above play...I wanted to watch it,but was scared too.

My mum died 4 years ago, on the 3rd of May of bowel cancer. Watching Lisa's journey, I sobbed, as the familiar feeling of fear returned to my stomach, each stage your beautiful Lisa encountered, I cried so hard for you both, and for my mum, and me. Cancer is a bitch, that rules with an iron fist. There is no respite from the constant fear that gnaws away at you, gripping your stomach like a vice. The ripple effects it has on a family are profound.

The C Word blew me away, your courageous, ballsy wife blew me away. Thank you so much for sharing her journey with us, I'm sure it couldn't have been easy watching it all. I know that I found myself replaying mums illness as the show went on.

I am so sorry for your loss, yet I feel happy for the wonderful legacy your brilliant wife has left women all over the world, I'm sure that she has and will save so many lives, and keep people strong on their journey to hell and back. She was a true fighter, an inspiration, I can almost feel her as I write this, like I've stepped into her room. God bless you and your family xxx

Jodie Mills said...

So until yesterday evening, much to my disgust, I'd never heard of Lisa Lynch or The C Word, until I saw an array of facebookers post about how much they cried and what a good actress Sheridan Smith is (let's be honest she is), so I thought "why not? Let's see what the fuss is about" and now somehow as I sit typing this with my swollen eyes and tear-stained cheeks I feel as though I lost Lisa too, I can't sleep for thinking about Lisa, Pete, Jane and Ian and what a lovely family they were, what a beautiful woman Lisa was and how none of them deserved any of it and I can only hope that through her family her legacy lives on. Sweet dreams gorgeous x

Daniela Bright said...

the scene that sent the most powerful message was being picked up from the bath then wrapped in a towel. the many days my husband would bath and dress me is something that will stay with me forever. Wow for being so strong to blog, I tried so many times but failed, started videos, but deleted them as too painful.
diagnosed at 29, 4 surgeries, 16 chemo, 38 radio. It's been 6 months since last treatment, everyday is a privilege to be alive and I live it. Kicked the shit out of the bullshit - I won't stop fighting.

Clare S said...

I managed to catch the C Word on iplayer last night, going to be honest, I wasn't going to watch it as I'm someone who generally likes to bury my head in the sand!!! I haven't cried or laughed so much in ages. You are such a strong woman with the support of a fantastic family. Wherever you are now I'm sure your kicking up your heels and causing a riot, true girl power!!!!!x

Clare Yates said...

My husband lost his mum to breast cancer she was 47.
Last week I wass sitting in a room with 24 other women waiting to be told if I had a cancerous lump or a cyst. Thankfully mine was a cyst.
Lisa Lynch you are an amazing woman and you have made a difference x God Bless x x x
Clare Yeo

SLM said...

I have just watched the C Word and it was amazing ,,,, such a moving piece of television but not slushy or anything .... just moving but sensitive ... I don't have Breast cancer (and am pleased to report a clear mammogram this week) I have lost friends to this cancer and have also friends who have beaten it ....your family must be so proud of you and how you dealt with this dreadful thing (trying not to come up with clichés!) I have taken so much strength from this TV ... well done

jodie cunday said...

I have read the blog, I have watch the programme and it is truly inspirational how Lisa has helped and will continue to help so many women with the 'b######t'. It makes me proud to be a woman knowing that even at our most vulnerable there are completely amazing women out there who can give you a sense of hope. We all carry on with our day to day lifes while women out there are battling for even just an extra day to look after and care for there family yet we take it for granted. Lisa's sheer bravery and determination to battle through was simply amazing despite the worst. Although her family have been through the no'1 nightmare they will be so proud having even known such a beautiful women who has empowered people lives everywhere. Lisa you are a star, the brightest in the sky, you are loved by many and will be there for so many people, in the present and future.

Sophie O'Kane said...

I just watched the programme and can honestly say it was oth so interesting and incredible to watch such a brave women who took no bul*****. This is exactly how people should, act when struck with a horrible blip in their life! With a pinch of salt. You only have a short life and if it is made shorter well love every moment like it is your last! Xxxxxx

Clare Milburn said...

Such an inspirational woman and a very supportive family, a beautiful story in b******t circumstances, will be purchasing the c word and enjoying reading the very talented and brave lisa's story xxx

Knittie Ferlittie said...

Wow just watched your program I have no words but I will be checking for the bull shit more often..

Lucy Letts said...

Just finished the c word book after watching it on TV. WhiLe I read your words, Sheridan Smith kept popping in my head. What great casting, can see why you wanted her to be you. Brilliantli written and produced. Enjoyed both very much. We have cancer in the family and with friends - there's no getting away from it. So refreshing to read such an honest account. It is life as a cancer patient and their families - but you sure did it in style Lisa. xxx

Rosie S said...

I read Lisa's blog after watching The BBC film. I hope my words do not sound trite but what a gal! A phenomenal writing talent and Lisa, Pete Jamie and Jonze have done a great job of opening our eyes to what it means to endure cancer and bereavement. Lisa's spirit shines through in her writing and I am sure she will have saved lives- not only by keeping the topic of cancer open but by encouraging many of us to just hold on to the joys in life.
I have lost my mum to cancer.I feel with time the happier memories take over.
My heartfelt good wishes to Lisa's family and friends.

mark gawley said...

I have just watched on Iplayer - absolutely fantastic. You should all be very proud.
