Stop cancer being a scary word

My Story

I was told Wednesday 7th June I have breast cancer..... I was dumb struck Could I believe what I was hearing It did not seem real I had gone on my own expecting it to be the same answers as I've had for the last 30yrs "cysts" This was different and I was in total shock How could I tell my kids??? How could I tell my mum??? How could I tell my friends and work colleagues????? And that was definitely the hardest part so far Saying to those I love and care for "I have breast cancer" Turns out that's the only way it would come out my mouth Strong and determined one minute crying and feeling sick with fear the next but those words, I have cancer was sometimes all I could say.... What about the race for life, I have run this race for the past 10years and I am determined to not miss this year. My operation is booked for 4th July...I can't forget that date! So 9th July mud run, I can go even though I may not be able to climb the obstacles or run, I will get round, nothing will stop me. Same goes for cancer it will not beat me and I will do my small bit for others to be able to fight.....
