Today marks the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
I don’t think there is too many people who have not been touched by this insidious disease, myself included. My mother was 49 when diagnosed the first time – I believe she had the tumour for many years before she acted on it – and 2 years later the other breast was compromised – followed by the inevitable metastasis of a brain tumour. In those days she experienced the trauma of radical mastectomies and was a guinea pig for Tamoxifen trials in the early days. Times have changed, awareness has increased, mortality rates have decreased but awareness of this disease sits very close to my heart and soul. I am 55 years old, I have my check-ups and I feel blessed to have not succumbed to date…..I have tears rolling down my cheeks as I write this! It’s been 25 years since she passed and now sails through the universe on another journey – it was just 4 weeks before my first son, her first grandchild was born – I miss her so.
