innocence for sale

Bridget, 62, Waterford Skipping down the garden path, I had a big, beaming smile on my face. It was summer 1964 and, aged 7, I’d just had my confirmation at church, meaning I could receive Holy Communion for the first time. My parents were devoutly Catholic and usually I found church boring – but this was my special day. Mum had bought me a beautiful new dress and I loved swishing around in it. It was a world away from my usual, tatty jumpers and skirts. After the service, Mum took me home, while Dad headed to the pub as usual.

my reasons for living

Debbie Caquias, 51 Brushing my teeth before bed, I winced at the large red sore on my tongue. It was August 2007, and it had been there a week. It was already the size of a 20p coin. ‘And it’s just getting bigger,’ I moaned to my husband Sam, 43, as I went down to breakfast. White patches had formed around it. Eating and speaking were becoming uncomfortable. ‘You need to get it looked at,’ Sam, a trauma nurse, said. I made an appointment, and my doctor said it looked like a canker sore – an ulcer caused by an accidental bite. ‘Or stress,’ he said. Sounded right. I was a frazzled mum to our 11-month-old girl Gabby. Still, I was referred to hospital for a biopsy. ‘It’s just a precaution,’ Sam reassured. Two weeks later, he took me to hospital…
