Having emotional support around me both during my treatment and for every day since as I’ve come to terms with the changes in my body and life style has inspired me to want to support and empower other women as they traverse the challenges that a breast cancer diagnosis will throw at them. The recent changes in the support available for women with breast cancer in the Herefordshire area led me to reach out to that wonderful network and with their support we have created HBCSG.
Having the support of other women around me has helped to remind me that I am more than just a survivor of cancer. I am a mother to a gorgeous, now grown up, son. I am a wife to my long suffering hubby, I am still passionate about cooking and baking and have rediscovered a love of health and fitness since my diagnosis and feel optimistic about my future. I also discovered that I am capable of walking down a catwalk looking amazing whilst raising money for charity! If someone had told me I would ever do a thing like that before I wouldn’t have believe it. It has been the warmth and support of the women around me that has enabled me to be where I am today.
