A little about me.
I am a Mum, Wife, Midwife and Nurse. I have 2 little boys who are 2 and 5. I am now 40 years old.
I was diagnosed in July 2018. I underwent a bilateral Mastectomy and full axillary lymph clearance to both sides. I was placed at Stage 3c. Hormonal positive lobular breast cancer.
At the time I had a 9 month old and 4 year old. I was 38 when diagnosed. I had all the usual treatment. Dose Dense chemo, 5 weeks radiation.
However, it was not successful in eradicating the cancer and in May of 2019, this year, I was diagnosed with Brain and Bone Metastases.
In June I underwent 2 weeks of whole brain radiation, which was successful.

I am currently part of a clinical trial using chemo tablets. So far, I am stable.

I am very keen to bring about awareness of breast cancer to younger women and the community to show the impact a diagnosis can have on their family and friends.

 

I would love to continue to bring awareness by running a few fundraisers, possibly

speaking in a healthcare setting to patients and staff and also aim for support from family and friends with becoming a So Brave model and selling lots of calendars x
