I walked out with the all clear, incredibly thankful that it was only a lump, though noticing that the waiting room was full of women who may not have received such happy news. They would have had to endure a tough Christmas and year ahead and I couldn’t bear the thought of it.
My dad has battled so strongly, and now has to battle once more and it’s not fair. It’s not fair on anyone and I need to do whatever I can to make a difference in tackling the cruelty of this disease.
