On Friday 4th October I was diagnosed with invasive carcinoma and focus high grade ductal carcinoma in situ of the left breast. As I turned 50 this year I received a letter from the Government/ Breast Screen to have a mammogram. It was just as well I did this in a relatively timely manner! I still have a lot of waiting and uncertainty over the next few weeks but I'm so thankful to have the love and support of Neil and my family and friends.
If you aren't yet 50, make sure you check your breasts regularly - ask your GP or online for help.
Help me create a cancer free future!
I’m hosting a Cancer Council Girls' Lunch to change the future for all Queensland women.
Every day almost 12 Queensland women will hear those dreaded words, “you have cancer” and while the survival rate has increased, there is still more work to be done.
That’s why I’m bringing everyone together - to raise funds to get us closer to a future free from women’s cancers.
I would love for your support! Come along to my Girls' Lunch on Sunday October 20th or donate today on this page.
By supporting my Cancer Council Girls' Lunch, you will contribute to freeing the future from cancer.
Your support will be powering vital research, prevention and support services. Making a difference to so many in their most vulnerable time, now and into the future.
Together, we can create a future for all Queensland women.
Thank you to my Supporters
