Welcome to my Breast Cancer story, with lumps, bumps and grumps.


I made it! Last night I went to the cinema to watch Avengers Endgame. Nearly a year ago – I was convinced I would not be here to see it. Or the final series of Game of Thrones. Why? Because cancer really screws with your head. There was one week between being told by the Consultant that I ha ...

On the back of yesterdays post about #BosomBuddies and some of the feedback they got about raising awareness about other cancers. I thought I would try and do a bit more myself. I am not a statistician. So take this with a pinch of salt in terms of detailed accuracy. However, even if you add a larg ...

I’m gonna be honest with you. My family and I have had a rough few weeks. I’ll spare you the gory details. Suffice to say it has been a challenge for all of us. I’ve come to realise that something weird has happened to me since my breast cancer. I’ve always been a posi ...

When I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, I had zero idea what was coming. This little video shares some of my emotional experiences and I hope it helps someone else out there just starting out as the fear of the unknown is just that. Fear. And it sucks. Fear has two meanings. Forget everything an ...

The week waiting for my first results was the longest week of my life. After the shock wore off, I started to get nervous. What was going to happen to me? So, I turned to my old friend Google.
