Today's date 6th May 2015

A year ago today I was diagnosed with lobular breast cancer. The first time I cried that day was late at night lying in bed cuddling my little lady, wondering how on earth I was going to tell her.

The next morning I woke up and knew that I was going to do everything I needed to get through this for her.

With the help and support of all of my friends, family and the fantastic staff at Guys Hospital I got through the lumpectomy, the BRCA2 diagnosis, the chemo and the double mastectomy.

A year later I can thank my lucky stars that I'm still here, I can look back and say "I did it..!"
