I'm a milestone kind of girl, last week was my 'cancerversary' - I didn't know what to call it till yesterday.
A year ago I had zero awareness of what breast cancer involved. A year ago, yesterday, I said goodbye to my breasts and was the lucky recipient of a flat–but cancer-free–chest. I'm ok with that.
Our lives were shaken up but overall I know I've had a good year . Not to say it wasn't a horrendous experience but we still got on with our life.
I'm grateful for all the good things and good people in my life. I know some people struggle to get anyone to care.
Before my diagnosis I didn't know about the emotional effects, about the process, about the pain, about survivorship, the required support and where donations went - I knew none of it.
I know I'd be very appreciative if anyone wants to sponsor me for City to Surf so I can help raise $1000 for Breast Cancer Network Australia to help other women faced with a breast cancer diagnosis
receive the very best information, treatment, care and support possible.
I know that Cinnamon Roll pancakes with cream cheese glaze make a lot of mess but it's worth 30mins of prep and even washing up.
|Real cooks make a mess !|
I can't wait till the power is connected (and water) , another day closer to using my new dishwasher - it's been 18 months since we said goodbye to our dishwasher.
|There were so many rocks. It is much deeper than it looks.|
I'm a terrible 'judge' of age, a lady I met recently told me she was 47 yesterday ...oops I thought she was way older than I was. Of course I never mentioned it. Maybe breast cancer aged her but sheesh I hope I don't look that old.
I know that some women have zero knowledge of idevices, Facebook, Instagram , Twitter and dare I say blogging!
I didn't dare tell them how much time I spent online. Of course I am reading (your blog) , yes filling my brain with more knowledge, laughing, looking for healthy recipes (see above) and READING ...I'm never playing CANDY CRUSH. Ever !
