My battle with breast cancer
Hi my name is Mandy I'm from Wolverhampton. In june this year i discovered a lump in my breast when applying sun cream. I got an appointment with my gp who referred me to the breast care clinic.
Results after the biopsy confirmed i had grade 3 invasive breast cancer. Telling my kids was the hardest thing ever but they have given me strength I needed to go through an operation, and so far 4 rounds out of 6 chemo sessions. Its hard going but im fighting through. Next after chemo is 4 weeks of radiotherapy. You can not prepare yourself to hear those words "I'm sorry but its cancer" so to say i was shocked was an understatement but I have tried to be strong and positive for those around me.
I got in there 1st before chemo took my hair and braved the shave for Macmillan. Listening to music and doing some arts and crafts at home is helping me through this tough time.
