My Story

As most of you know I was diagnosed with bilateral breast cancer on Christmas eve 2016. It was a frightening and emotional time in my life but It is now May 2017 and because of the amazing support and love from my partner, family and friends I got through it. And because of cancer research, the amazing staff at Wythenshawe Hospital as well as Christies in Salford, the cancer has been taken out and any cancer cells left over have been "fried" with radiotherapy. Unfortunately cancer has effected more than just me in my family this year so my sister (Ann Marie Williams) and I (and not forgetting our friend Helen Dobson) would now like to do our bit and try and raise as much money as possible for cancer research because if it wasn't for them, I might not have been able to do this event and many other things. I found a lump in my right breast on the 11th of December 2016, test results revealed another lump in my left breast and I was diagnosed with breast cancer. On the 12th of January 2017 the cancer was removed and I had my radiotherapy which finished in May. I feel amazing and very lucky. (The moral of the story?) If you find a lump please get it checked out asap. It is frightening, but early detection means better chance of cure. Remember to check lay down as well as stood up and look out for any unusual changes. If found in time it can be cured !!! Please donate as much or as little as you can, every penny helps, Thank you. Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money and save lives. 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
