Hello all, I'm 39 single mother of three primary school children and recently been diagnosed with Stage two breast cancer. I have a mastectomy booked in a few weeks then chemo and radio.

Anyone out there been in or going through a similar situation ?? 

  • Hi there, I’m similar, have 3 primary school children. I was diagnosed August last year and started chemo sept 1st, had mastectomy and lymph node clearance in Feb and radiation in May/June. I’ve two more herceptin infusions left and can finally see the light at the end of a long year. You can do it, it will be tough but manageable. Heart️ 

  • Hi, that’s great news for you! How did you manage with the children and undergoing treatment? Best wishes
