First and foremost I am a mum and wife, my children and husband are the most amazing, understanding, kind and caring humans I have ever known. I was in my 20's when I was first diagnosed with breast cancer. Within 3weeks of the diagnosis I'd had a radical mastectomy followed by 6months of chemo then daily radiotherapy. Knowing that I would be cured was what kept me fighting. 2 years later I had 12 hour surgery to have a new boob built from my own fat and tissue and I was so relieved to be given the all clear. We continued to live our life as a happy family.
A year later I noticed a niggling pain in my chest. I mentioned it to the consultant who prescribed me some pain relief gel to rub on my chest and said it was probably nerve damage. The pain wouldn't go, so I continued to hassle the consultant and my gp for 14 months. I was given a range of different reasons for the pain, chest infection, pleurisy, nerve damage. But not cancer.
I saw the oncology consultant for a medication review & mentioned the pain to him. He sent me for a scan the same day and then phoned me the following day to go and see him.
Then I received the news I'd been terrified of hearing for the last 2 years, my cancer has returned and has spread to my bones, little sprinkles of tumors all over my body but a big one in my chest.
With NHS treatment I'll survive a few years but that isn't long enough
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy and mistletoe treatment have shown great results for people in my predicament and I'm so desperate to try them but I can not afford to pay for these myself.
I'm also raising money to pay for training in nipple and eyebrow tattooing because I know how it feels to be without them. I love my job but I really want to do this training and make a difference to those who want it.
Because of my job I wish to remain anonymous, the last thing I want is the children in my school (and their families) knowing that I am unwell but please feel free to contact me if you wish.
Thank you. K x
