Welcome to my blog….
I have been writing since June 2013.
This blog is all about living the dream, making the most out of life and reflecting on the good of the world.
This blog is also about my journey after receiving a diagnosis of an uncommon form of aggressive Breast Cancer at age 27 (Stage 3,Grade 2. ER-/PR-/HER2+).
I was living in London, England when I was diagnosed and was on my OE (Overseas Experience).
I have tried my best to explain treatments, surgeries and their processes in order to help people understand cancer.
I feel that we live in a society that fears the unknown and cancer is one, if not the most feared illness in the modern world.
My aim in life is to share knowledge through experience in order to educate and empower people to act if they notice change in their bodies.
Writing has been a god send and a useful tool to cope with a life threatening illness and has also been a way of sharing my story with the world.
All of the information in this blog is exactly what happened to me while travelling and going through treatment for Breast Cancer while living in London, England.
None of the information in this blog should be taken as medical advice so please if you are unsure of your own symptoms or aliments see your Doctor.
I am a New Zealander. I am an Educator. I am a Patient Advocate.
