  • My mum was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. She was meant to start chemo day of lockdown. Instead she got radiotherapy and has been on herceptin ever since. She found another lump couple of weeks ago so we've got hospital tomorrow to see what's going on. The point is I feel like you I understand exactly how your feeling. But the way I keep strong in front of mum is I think back as to all the times growing up mum stayed strong for me. Never shed a tear in front of me regardless what was happening in our life's. So I dig deep and show mum the strength she showed me. Dnt get me wrong I cry my eyes out when I'm not with her. You need to let it out. Then dust yourself down deep breath. x
