I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer on the 12th February 2016. I had a lumpectomy on the 10th march and then started chemo in the end on April. Chemo was very harsh and I ended up having it delayed because of a gum infection and then ended up in hospital after each of my last 3 chemo cycles. I started 4 weeks of radiotherapy in October and ended up in hospital and having tests done because of a radiotherapy side effect!!! I'm now 4 weeks past the end of radiotherapy, still struggling with chemo side effects but I managed to get a job 2 weeks after my last chemo which I started 2 weeks ago!!! It's been the hardest year of my life but I've proved how strong I am to get a job while feeling so ill and I'm loving it!!!
