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.

“After life” planning shouldn’t just be for people who are sick. As I’m often told by people trying to minimise the severity of my cancer, “we could all get hit by a bus tomorrow” and if you were, would anyone know what you wanted to happen?
