Event Details

When Peter Thomas was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2007- resulting in an 11cm x 7cm tumour in his chest - he underwent 18 months of treatments including a Stem Cell Transplant at UHW, resulting in a month in isolation. During this time, Peter stared at this only companion in his cramped room - a two-foot high cupboard - and started to think about "stuff". The "stuff" our lives are full of, that are minds are overflowing with, the "stuff" which keeps us awake at night trying to work out how and when we'll ever find the time to deal with it. The "stuff" which can sometimes overshadow what really matters in our lives. 

Unsurprisingly, the cupboard offered Peter few answers, but since beginning his long, and ongoing, journey to recovery he's thought a lot about the importance of finding the right balance for our busy lives, whilst also wondering if we've lost our perspective? And how do we deal with the challenges life throws at us, and navigate our way through them? Peter's talk will address these questions as well as giving insights into his incredible story, which has given him the determination to work harder than ever, whilst also finding more time for his loving family. Impossible some might say? Here's your chance to find out. 

Please note: This talk will take place between 11.00 - 12.00 and not 12.00 - 13.00 as previously advertised.

Speaker Biog

Peter Thomas is 46 years old and lives near Carmarthen with his wife of 24 years, Fiona, and their 2 children Ethan and Harry. He’s the owner of Contract Services - a construction company in Port Talbot who specialise in major refurbishment works for local authorities, housing associations and government, and who employ over 60 people. He admits to having a “hectic” life with work, children and ‘life stuff’, but always tries to involve himself in many good things. He’s a cancer survivor, advocate, patient voice and anything else he can shout about! In the little spare time he has he enjoys cooking, eating great food with great friends, and the occasional glass of vino.
