I was diagnosed with breast cancer on 7th july 2011. I had left mastectomy on 8th aug 2011. Treatment started soon after. I was very scared when i heard the word cancer, i think most people would be. The treatment was very hard and left me quite weak but I regained my strengh and have been back at work for a while now. I hope to get reconstruction soon. My message would be to anyone just who has just been diagnosed stay strong! My family and friends were wonderful and supported me throughout...

I had my right mastectomy in 09 and it came back on the left in 2010, unrelated cancers but both hormonal. I'm now in the recon stage and have just had a tramsflap operation on the 18 Dec 12. Things are going great at the moment and i'm very happy with the outcome. Still have a few more touch ups before the journey is over, but i can see the finish line each day. Positivity is key in my recovery along with a loving husband and our gorgeous daughter. I thank the lord for waking me up every...

Positivity is key in my recovery along with a loving husband and our gorgeous daughter. I thank the lord for waking me up every day and have always been told, there is always someone out there worse off than yourself so don't dwell on what you cannot control and live every day as happy as you can make it. Live the life you have and love the life you live. I walked proudly around the shopping malls with my bald head, felt the stares but did not care as i was the one in control of the path i was on. Don't let anyone get you down in the dumps, smile at them as it's there fear of the unknown that guides there eyes your way ^_^

I was diagnosed with invasive inductro carcinoma in May of 2002. First there was one surgery, then another and then 33 long treatments of radiation. But, because I finally had that mamogram done they found my cancer early enough to treat. During my second surgery they also removed the lymph nodes in my arm. As of today no problems there. I am truly alive due to early detection. Get your mamograms ladies.

Hace ya 6 años que me tocó librar esta batalla y, afortunadamente, estoy aquí para contarlo.. Ánimo a todas aquéllas que hoy estáis pasando por este trance. Es duro sí, pero se supera y pasa a ser sólo un capítulo más en tu vida. Como me dijo el médico, el mundo es de los valientes, de los que se tiran al agua y nadan, así que ¡Adelante... A nadar!... el resto de tu vida te está esperando...

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2012. I've since had a lumpectomy & am currently busy with chemo. Am fighting a fight I never knew I had in me. I salute each & every one of you who have gone through & are still going thru this. Stay strong & God Bless each & every one of us.

I lost my mom to breast cancer in 1982. She was diagnosed in 1980 and underwent surgery - one breast was removed, she went through radiotherapy in a London Hospital but lost her life after six months. Thankfully there are more potent to treatment for the disease now. Ladies, please seek early treatment and men please lets support our mothers, wives, sisters and all to go through this. (No need for divorce in times like these) Our suport and prayers will keep them alive.
