My name is Jill Reubens. In 2005 I was diagnosied with breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiotherapy I was well on way to recovery. I went back to work and was enjoying life, when in 2009 I was diagnosied with stage 4 metastasis breast cancer, incurable and sad. I started a new medication, which I have been very lucky in responding too. I have been a ceramicist for over 30 yrs, it is a great love of mine, there is somethinig very therapeutic about working with clay. Having had a lot of interest shown in some wedding favours I had made recently I thought I would have ago at running a business supplying brides to be. Cancer doesnt have to mean a death sentance today, I think that been positive and productive has prolonged my life so much. I love life and I love what I do.I have to admitt I have struggled to find an employer whom would employee me so I thought I would employee myself... If you feel you would like to help and donate whatever you can, it would be so gratefully appreciated. Thankyou for taking the time to read my story xx
