Hey there my name is Saima Thompson, 30 years old and founder of multi award winning Masala Wala Cafe in South London.

I’m sharing my experiences about business, culture, food, love, spirituality and living with Stage 4 lung cancer.

I am much more than my diagnosis and not ashamed to speak honestly and openly about facing a life shortening condition as a British Pakistani.

Named Top 50 Femail 2018 by Daily Mail for my work breaking cultural taboos on illness and Top 100 changemaker by The Big Issue.
