06.03.13 a date I had no idea would be so significant to me, but today I said goodbye to my Breast Cancer surgeon…! OMGoodness!!
One Lumptectomy; one Sentinal Lymph Node Biopsy; one Mastectomy; one Lymph Node Clearance; Numerous CT scans, MRI scans, X-rays, Ultrasounds, Mammograms, Head scans, Bone scans, Angiograms; Chemotherapy; Hair loss; Radiotherapy; Tamoxifen, Zolodex, Second Mastectomey, Double Breast Reconstruction; Nipple Reconstruction; Nipple Tattoos, ‘Dog Ear’ removal… a billion injections and hospital visits later and my 6 year long cancer ‘adventure’* is over.
How do I feel? Very, very emotional… cried my eyes out with sheer relief when I picked up my daughters from school (much to my 6 year olds embarrassment!)… so very happy to start this new chapter.
A big thank you to all those that have supported me along the way – WE did it!
*by adventure I mean the African safari type when you’re up against the hungriest lions fighting for your survival… and the annoying painful biting mosquitos that you just have to put up with and often make you violently sick.
The beautiful singer Anastacia is to battle through treatment for Breast Cancer for the second time… and vows to beat it again. A simple article on Yahoo which shows what signs to look out for. I respect any celebrity to remain public after news like this as it all helps to promote awareness. Wishing her and her loved ones every strength at this difficult time.No comments
Six years ago I was diagnosed with grade 3 advanced Breast Cancer… an almighty shock to myself and to all those around me. After numerous surgeries including a Mastectomy and lymph node removal I underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy. A terribly scary time which lasted about a year… during which I lost my hair and discovered all I really wanted was something soft, simple yet stylish to wear as I got on with my life with two very small children and to keep me warm at night.
This week it will be a year already since I came out of hospital having had another risk-reducing mastectomy and double breast reconstruction… it will see hopefully (please!) my final smaller hospital procedure (second round of nipple tattoos… in ‘Diamond Blush’) and its also seen me take my very last Tamoxifen. Having taken it for 5 years, and never wanted to take it in the first place, now I feel very lost and wondering how stopping the drug with effect me! I guess any change makes me nervous.
Lots of exciting things planned for the near future for Bold beanies… very honoured to be working with two great charities Alice’s Escapes who provide small breaks and holiday for families with a seriously ill children and Maggies Centres… wonderful places to go and be supported all over the country. Beautiful new beanies in gorgeous new fabrics on their way and lots of additions to the girls, teenage, mens and boys categories. Please join Bold Beanies on Facebook , follow me on Twitter and pin your favourite beanies to Pinterest.

Wonderful interview with Millie, Vicky and Simon on ‘This Morning’ yesterday.
They are on exactly 43 minutes into the programme… great interview about the Alice and her amazing achievements, but also about about the family carrying on her legacy and Millie’s Kilimanjaro climb later this year.
Click here and help raise money for the Alice’s Escapes charity by buying the Alice’s Escapes Bold Beanie. The Liberty Arts fabric was chosen by Alice and is donated by Liberty of London. A hat not just for hair loss but great for outdoor sports and under all types of helmet.

I love this blog by Laura Pricey… this talented witty young writer is dealing with her own breast cancer diagnosis in a real and very informative way… and here she writes a beginners guide to breast cancer diagnosis for younger women for Breast Cancer Care…No comments
