As it's breast cancer awareness month, I'd like to gently remind you to think about having yourself checked out. As you've probably gathered, I don't post much of my personal life on here - just some family photos and demo things. I don't talk much about this outside my family and close friends but I think most of you are aware that I wasn't well last year and had to take some time out.
The short story is that when the appointment came to go for a mammogram, I was too busy and was going to cancel as I had no symptoms whatsoever. However, David persuaded me to make the time and go along. It came as a complete shock to be called back and told that I had indeed got breast cancer. This post is not about me - it's for your benefit. I'm not looking for sympathy or pats on the back, I just want to make more women aware. The outcome so far is that I had surgery to remove the cancer in July 2015 and a course of radiotherapy throughout October last year. As you can see I'm now out and about demoing again even though I've been taking on less travelling because of the fatigue - but it could have been so different if I'd cancelled that appointment.
I thank God every day for the the care I received from everyone involved along the way.
Please think about making an appointment :)
