Who am I?

I’m 34 years old. I work full time. I work out with a personal trainer. I have a wonderful husband and lots of great hobbies. Sounds great doesn’t it. The slight flaw in my life is that I was diagnosed in November 2017 with Stage 4 Secondary (aka metastatic) Breast Cancer. In other words the odds are not in my favour that I’ll see my 40th birthday. My cancer will kill me before then.

These blogs are about key parts of my life 14 months after my diagnosis. Some will be happy. Some will ramble. Some will be sad. Others will be angry. So strap in and prepare to join my rollercoaster ride through cancer. We’re all in it together. At least until the end of the ride. At that point you’ll step off and continue your life. I’ll leave the ride when I’m dead.

  1. Hi Kit,
    Excellent account of the myths of stage 4 cancer.
    Someone once said to live again after a diagnosis of stage 4 cancer is to accept it and give yourself permission to to live.
    Stage 4 cancer can be (and challenging) life limiting but there is hope, new medications and most of all choice.
    I too have stage 4 (Breast,bone abs liver) diagnosed after my 2nd son was 7 months in 2015, given months to live, with numerous chemo, treatments (zoldex being one!) and some complications I ha e not given up.
    I don’t let cancer define me or my life, I believe in having S very positive mental attitude and being a proactive advocate. It helps that I’m an emergency nurse/educator and continue to work, look after my 2 children and live a lovely happy life with my husband, family and friends.
    Best of luck on your roller coaster journey,
    Therese 😊🌈
