My Journey

On Tuesday 3rd January 2017 at 10am, I went to the doctor with what I thought was a cyst in my breast. Fast forward to 8.10pm that evening and I’m walking out of the Ulster Independent Clinic with a Breast Cancer Diagnosis. What followed was 9 long months of treatment, followed by another 9 (and counting!) in recovery.

So where am I now? I’m still off work - fatigue, confusion, focus and memory problems remain a problem, but they will sort themselves out eventually (who knows when!). I’m ready to move out of the ‘I’m sick’ phase and into the ‘I used to be sick’ phase - I need it; my whole family and friends need it! So I’m looking forward. I have no idea what will happen in the future, but as I reflect, as BAD as Cancer was, was there any good to come out of it? The answer is, yes there was - suddenly things that used to be a problem evaporated, without me even having to do anything.

Throughout everything I have had immense support from Action Cancer who have helped me come to terms with what has happened. All the while I kept thinking ‘this can’t keep happening to people’ so I’ve decided to do my bit and pay it forward. Through this fundraiser I want to provide the same support to cancer sufferers that I have received and also help Cancer Research UK with their invaluable research to help beat cancer sooner.

……… I also just want a bit of craic - I think I’ve earned it!!
