My name is Caroline. In 2013 at 33 years old, I was told I had aggressive grade 3 breast cancer. The cancer had already began to spread and was in my lymph nodes. I had surgery, plastic surgery, chemotherapy radiotherapy and a year of herceptin and then a huge operation called DIEP flap to rebuild my breast. Unfortunately, 4 years on I am now incurable. They call me stage IV. There aren’t any more stages.
During treatment I carried on with life, as a mum and decided to blog not just for my own sanity and wellbeing, but to help as many other young ladies I could so they didn’t feel like they were on their own.
My writing is very emotionally charged at times, but always very honest. I felt that my privacy and embarrassing myself was not an issue if people could see the real deal of cancer, because cancer is tough, it’s a long road ahead, but there are always good days, wonderful days, and there will be for you too. Just never lose hope.
These days you’ll catch me on a plane or on a beach somewhere, I now call myself a world traveller! Cancer doesn’t stop me from doing the things I enjoy.
