I was diagnosed with primary breast cancer in March 2020. My first surgery was at the end of the first week of lockdown and my second surgery which included removing lymph nodes for biopsy was at the end of April. Fortunately the results of this biopsy were negative. I completed a course of radiotherapy in June, shortened due to valuable research into the benefits of shorter radiotherapy courses, and I'm now working through my recovery. I know I was very lucky to get my surgeries and treatment completed during lock down.
After a year where vital cancer trials have been delayed, the Race for Life is more important than ever.
I'm just starting to rebuild my fitness levels and can't think of a better way to help that than by taking part in a Very 2020 Race for Life on 26th September. Every pound you can donate will go towards Cancer Research UK’s ground-breaking work, so please sponsor me today!
We won’t let 2020 stop us.
