This is my gorgeous mum (who drives me nuts on the occasion) enjoying her cuppa, just after one of her sessions. Mum was diagnosed with breast cancer a few months ago. The crazy thing was, there were no signs, she felt no lump and neither did the doctor. It was all pure luck she went for a check and one of her tests picked it up because it was buried so deep within.
In the last few months I’ve had friends and friends of friends who have been diagnosed with various types of cancers. It feels as though practically every second person these days has been diagnosed with some form off. It is just so bloody scary! And the ripple affect it has, how lives change in an instant from the news.
Through mums experience so far and from others close to me, I’ve learnt so many things (which maybe obvious to some, but it really hit me) in such a short amount of time I’ve realised:
How important support from those around you really matters.
We’re all fighters, whether for sport, mental or physical health and other. But you don’t win a war without an army.
The strength of the human body, with what it has to endure mentally and physically.
Cancer is just a word. The more power you give to it, the more it will breed in your mind.
Never wait for symptoms, get checked!
And of course, that mum’s a bloody trooper ♥️
