To raise money to help find a cure so one day people won't have to go through what others and I have
My name is caroline I am a mother of 4 gorgeous children and this is my cancer story and the reason I am raising money for this great cause. April 2016 I found a lump in my left breast,I was worried so booked in to see the doctor the next day. Never once did I think it was cancer I was 36 and with no family history at all. The doctor then sent me to the breast unit at the hospital where I had a ultrasound scan a mamagram and a biopsy taken from the lump. I then went back with wayne for the results and of 13th May 2016 I was diagnosed with cancer, my whole world fell apart and I didn't believe it was happening to me. I was then booked in for a lumpectomy and sentinal node biopsy to see if cancer had spread to my lymph nodes. That was done on the 17th June 2016. With results showing cancer had spread I was then given 6 months of chemotherapy and 20 sessions of radiotherapy and tamoxifen for at least 5 years. The past 10 months have been hell with chemotherapy putting me in hospital twice , losing my hair and having my skin burnt to a crisp, but I'm still here,alive and I am now determined to get myself fit and help beat cancer ! I am a survivor !! Donating through this page is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with Cancer Research UK.
