This time twelve years ago, I had lost my mum to secondary breast cancer and had just been diagnosed myself. I had 2 young teenage children at the time and was concerned that I might not live to see them grow up. Since then I have had another bout of breast cancer, but have seen my children leave school, go to university, graduate, find gainful employment, marry and have a family of their own. It will never be the same as it was, but I still live a busy and fulfilled life.
Breast cancer is currently one of the most treatable forms of cancer. Here's hoping that you get good news next week.
Please keep in touch.
