My Cancer treatment
In June of 2016 my dog found a painful lump in my boob – I assumed it would be nothing. I was young. I was, sort of, in a roundabout way, fit and healthy. And every bit of literature tells you dangerous lumps don’t hurt.

But it was something. It was cancer. At 35 I was finding out I had breast cancer. *queue dramatic music*

In the year that followed I had a lumpectomy, two rounds of IVF, 5 months of chemo and 23 sessions of radiotherapy. I'm now taking an oestrogen blocking tablet for at least 5 years now to try and prevent a recurrence.  I’ve got an oncologist on speed dial. I know the in jokes in the rad clinics. I’ve become au fait with injecting myself and knowing how high my temperature can get before I need to be worried. I’ve run out of things to binge on Netflix. 

And I've written about it the whole way through. Not prolifically, because I coundn't bear this turning into a 'cancer blog' (it felt too depressing) but my posts relating to my cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery are here. 

If you're here because you too have 'Young Breast Cancer' here are a few places I found to be super helpful. 
Visit the Young Breast Cancer Network on facebook and join their private group. And seek out Trekstock. They're an awesome charity that supports young people with any kind of cancer. They too have a facebook group but their site has loads of great stuff to support you through your treatment!
