In 2016 I was diagnosed with primary breast cancer, in the year that followed I had 6 sessions of chemotherapy, 23 sessions of radiotherapy and then 8 months of hormone therapy. Unfortunately, just as I was starting to rebuild my life, I was diagnosed with metastatic, or incurable, cancer. The breast cancer has spread to my bones and my lymph system and I have now been on treatment for MBC since 2019.
I have been blogging about my cancer diagnosis and treatment throughout the years and you can find those posts here.

A couple of months ago I was offered the chance to have a power port fitted.
Now you might be asking what on earth a power port is, basically it’s a little purple valve that sits under your skin in your chest and connects to the vein in your neck, and it means that I don’t have to be cannulated in the hand any more when I have treatment.
