It has been a while since we last posted, stating that we might be quiet for a while.
I (Kate) have been unwell since early December with a suspected nasty virus, but after a lot of investigating and testing, 3 weeks ago we received the devastating news that it is in fact Hodgkins Lymphoma (lymphatic cancer). As you can all imagine, it wasn't the news that we were expecting and our world has been turned upside down.
Having worked so hard to re-brand Leaff recently, it hasn't been easy to consider pausing things with the business, and we were really trying not to make any big decisions until we knew the full picture. However, having just met with my treatment team and gone through everything, unfortunately the treatment regime is to be very intensive and will see me quite poorly for the next 6-8 months, so we have been left with no choice but to pause trading until this is over and I'm in remission.
We can't stress enough how grateful we are for all of your support over the last 5 years, and we really want to make clear that this isn't the end of Leaff. If I feel able, I will continue to blog and post on the social pages, but I'm not going to put any pressure on myself to do this - it really depends on how I feel. We hope that you will all be able to support us throughout this break, and during our return at the end of the year.
