Story: I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer at the age of 30. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to go through. My cancer robbed me of everything society tells you makes you a woman, this being my hair, both of my breasts, my body - you name it. The journey back to myself again has been really hard but it’s been an absolute dream to be part of this campaign with where we get to celebrate our journeys. I'm now 3 years cancer FREE and counting!

Story: My journey started in 2017 when I noticed a lump about the size of a pea on my right breast. Although doctors checked it out and initially decided it was harmless, I requested for the lump to be removed as I didn’t like the way it looked. It wasn’t until this point that it came back as breast cancer. By now the cancer had been growing for at least 10 months whilst I’d been ignoring it. I immediately underwent a mastectomy and reconstruction surgery. I had numerous infections which resulted in sepsis and one final attempt to keep hold of my implant which was thankfully successful. I have now been clear for a year and a half. Luckily my cancer did not spread which meant I did not need any further treatment but if I’d have left it any longer it would have been a lot worse for me.

Story: I was diagnosed at 32 after finding a lump in the shower. After an ultrasound at the doctors showed an area of concern, biopsies were taken and I was told it was breast cancer. Two weeks later I had mri and mammogram which showed I had other areas of concern with tests showing these were cancer too. The doctors decided my best chance would be a mastectomy as the three tumours took up to much of my breast. I was later told to prepare for chemotherapy and radiotherapy as the results of scans were worse than anticipated. After the mastectomy and woke up to the news the sentinal node was clear meaning it hadn’t spread! I’ve been cancer free since the operation on 5th December 2018.
