In April 2017, at 38 years old, I was diagnosed with stage 3, grade 3 Triple Negative breast cancer. I was delivered the news via the telephone (unusual circumstances) whilst standing in the school playground waiting to pick up my children. I was devastated but managed to hold it together until I had my children home.
After multiple failed attempts at a lumpectomy, I commenced 6 months of chemotherapy, followed by a double mastectomy and 25 rounds of radiation. I am currently undergoing numerous reconstruction operations to rebuild my breasts. I am so proud to be a 2020 So Brave ambassador and truly believe this is a great opportunity for me to assist in helping young women diagnosed with Cancer whether it be raising much needed funds for research, supporting young women emotionally or raising awareness within the local community.
Thank you for your support!
