The devastation looking back through the hour glass!

A survivor means many things! But above all it means you have survived something that could have killed you. Sharing information is great because it helps others and I needed a lot of help to make decisions that I knew nothing about. I was very lucky that cancer council and some ladies that had been through the same things shared their story. It’s great to listen to others, but also to take what you need from this. Not all Information that is shared is good. Looking glass looking back! This year marks the 11 th anniversary of my second cancer! Sounds weird I would rather celebrate with something good. But guess what I am here that’s amazing! Would I make the same choices! Not sure! Would I do the same things not sure! Coming this far! Fear no longer consumes my mind! Oh that’s ok pretty sure only a couple of years ago I panicked over everything and started imagining things that weren’t even there. After the mastectomy I couldn’t feel my chest! This far in I still can’t. The sk

Nipple reconstruction the terror!

I have kind of decided it’s pretty dumb to want nipple surgery! Can they replace it the same no. But has techlogy made it easier or harder! Gee hard question! I wanted my nipples back to be human and a women again! Looking back it’s the stupidest thing I have ever done! No nipples: No bra It costs a lot of money and I don’t think it’s worth it, they are gone now it’s time to accept the loss. As hard as it is. I thought it would be great! Trying to get my body back, but the truth is our not coming back it’s gone and that has to be ok. I guess it was do I get tattoos and try and look normal again! They do have some great tattoo nipples. Well no I have accepted the new me but it comes with so many insecurities that I thought I was over. It’s ok not to have them! It’s ok not to be ok. But I am ok my boyfriend at the time spent $10,000 on these nipples to make me feel good, he actually was fine with everything so why was I so desperate to replace something that’s gone! Be happy

Genetic’s In family’s - knowing your history

Here we are I made it and did it! I am the first girl on my grandfathers side of my mothers side to crack the don’t get over 53 mould!  I turned 54 - 2 weeks ago and I had a great party with family and friends.  I am so lucky 🍀 So we worked hard with my family in Cyprus doing the family tree and also Doctor Speigelman in Newcastle to find out what was happening, it’s not generally genetic this cancer can be just one of those things and our tree runs between ovarian and Breast cancer!  It can also skip generations - so in my family it was the first girl every generation - this put mum and I in the firing line.  My sisters, my grandfathers sisters were all pulled in to see who had the gene. My grandfathers sister Helen had breast cancer so she was pulled in first she didn’t have the gene. So she was one of 6 who just get it. My sisters were completely clear!  Genetics is changing so if you are worried it’s a good test to have. They are brilliant with their technology.  But

Movie of the week! schindlers list

Liam Neeson is one of my favourite actors! He is brilliant This movie is based on a true story! Fabulous watch. My friend Jeff and I did a marathon movie day! This movie is a must watch. Businessman Oskar Schindler (Liam Neeson) arrives in Krakow in 1939, ready to make his fortune from World War II, which has just started. After joining the Nazi party primarily for political expediency, he staffs his factory with Jewish workers for similarly pragmatic reasons. When the SS begins ext erminating Jews in the Krakow ghetto, Schindler arranges to have his workers protected to keep his factory in operation, but soon realizes that in so doing, he is also saving innocent lives. #oskarschindler #kindess #nogoodcomesofwar #liamneeson #iamstillawoman #schindlerslist #hero
