I’m one of the lucky ones... I want more people to have a second chance after a cancer diagnosis.

In memory of

Natalie Thomas

I was diagnosed with breast cancer on the 7th November, 2016 aged 39. I did not fit any of the risk categories, it was just bad luck.

Since my diagnosis I have undergone surgery, chemo and radiotherapy and more surgery, and as horrendous as it’s been, I am well aware that I am one of the lucky ones.

Throughout my diagnosis, I had the support of a good friend, Nat. I hadn't known Nat and her husband, Huw, for very long. We met in September when our children started school together. At that time, our main worries were whether or not our children were settling in well at school and if they were behaving. A few months after I was diagnosed, Nat was also diagnosed with a rare liver cancer. Sadly, she passed away a couple of weeks later.

I’m taking part in the 5k Pretty Muddy fun run at Heaton Park to raise money for Cancer Research UK in the hope that a cure can be found for this devastating disease.
