My Story

I became aware of cancer 30yrs ago when my mother-in-law was diagnosed with cervical cancer. Since then we have lost 10 members of our friends & family including my mother to cancer. The biggest inspiration has been my big sister Bhamini (Munna) who fought breast cancer over five years ago. Chemo, hair loss, fatigue, yet she still bounced back to care for our elderly parents, who sadly passed away within a week of each other in January 2019. While caring for our parents she was again diagnosed with womb cancer and in February 2019 had a hysterectomy followed by radiotherapy. Due to her immune system being low she contracted shingles and was very weak for 3-4 weeks but never once complained always smiling and immaculately dressed. She has recently had her first of four sessions of chemotherapy with a heavy dose of steroids. In addition to a of appetite, tiredness, pain and lack of sleep, her hair started to fall out so with a big smile and a brave face, for a second time, she asked her son to shave it all off. To my sister, You have faced many challenges in life and I have seen you fight and come out on top. You are a warrior, inspiration and undeniably courageous. You will come out on top and give hope to all those going through cancer to have faith, fight and never give up. Your motto has always been ‘What will be will be but take one step forward at a time.’ Love you Xx
