30th October 2017, a date that will remain forever tattooed in my mind. The day I heard the words. 'You have Breast Cancer'
I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer and proceeded with a lumpectomy where two tumours were removed. I was lucky that no cancer had spread to my Lymph-nodes but was devastated when I was told Chemotherapy would be necessary before Radiotherapy......
So many lovely friends, colleagues and even an oncologist had recommended Breast Cancer Haven to me, I knew I had to check it out myself.
Breast Cancer Haven is a charity that supports women through their breast cancer treatment providing emotional, physical and practical support via trained professional nurses, therapists, counsellors and advisors. The Yorkshire branch is in Leeds City Centre where you take part in a private consultation and offered up to 10 complimentary therapy sessions in addition to having access to a host of wellbeing classes and courses.
So far I have received 3 Hypnotherapy sessions and 2 Shiatsu massages which have been invaluable to me as I work through the ‘maze’ that cancer is and my treatments.
Please help me to raise money so that others who are dealt this devastating news can benefit from the amazing support of ‘The Haven Family’
Any amount, no matter how small, is gratefully received.
Thank you.
