Kohji Candles fundraiser for Breast Cancer Now
Fundraising for Breast Cancer Now
Verified by JustGiving
Inspired by my beautiful friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 28 weeks pregnant
“A scent for an inspirational lady” to celebrate all the amazing ladies out there.
We will be donating money each week to this amazing cause.
At the age of 38 and 28 weeks pregnant I was told I had stage 3 breast cancer.
I found a lump under my armpit it had spread to my lymph nodes.
At first it was put down to my pregnancy, it was only after a biopsy that it was confirmed as cancer.
At 32 weeks pregnant I had a mastectomy on my left breast. ( I am currently waiting to have my right one removed).
I had my beautiful baby boy 6 weeks later and started my chemo 2 weeks after that.
Chemotherapy is a whole other level of horrific.
After 16 rounds and 15 rounds of radiotherapy hopefully the cancer has gone.
We are currently trying to find a medication to help keep it away. Which is actually turning out to be one of the hardest parts of the whole thing and the effect is has on your body.
I never in a million years thought I would need charities related to cancer, but I am so grateful they exist and to everyone who donates to raise awareness and support people on their journey. Aswell as hopefully one day finding a cure for cancer.
Please check your chest and breasts regularly.
learn what is and isn’t normal for your body in general and any thing suspicious, GET IT CHECKED.
