‘Blog-tober’

Here I go… I’ve set myself a challenge and I’m excited… Jump on board!

For those of you who don’t know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As a survivor of young breast cancer, with an innate love to write and a will to educate – I have instigated this project to share with you:

 What can you expect in ‘Blog-tober’? Whilst not everything will directly be about breast cancer – because let’s face it… breast cancer is shit and no-one wants 31 days of shit… right?!

I do, however, aim to give the month of October a flavour of pink…

“To see the light, you must first learn to deal with darkness” – Dan Millman

“There is the good and the bad, the great and the low, the just and the unjust. And that will never change” – unknown.

[Nothing quite like a dose of reality – life is certainly about accepting the good with the bad and the great with the ugly].

Your ‘taste of pink’ ‘Blog-tober’ preview:

  • REAL and raw diary entries written during my treatment, including:
  • ‘Hair Diaries’ – The loss, the grow back and everything in between
  • Facing mortality
  • When you admit to yourself that you are not ok…
  • Practical knowledge
  • Fun and freedom
  • Body Image
  • An event (stay tuned)
  • Travel adventures – time out
  • Letting your hair down – even when you have no hair
  • A day in the life of…
  • Interviews and collaborative stories
  • Plain English information/education
  • Food and illness/Food in general (including the utterly gross things I ate during chemo)
  • It’s no pink ribbon… what about secondary disease?
  • Menopause – what???
  • The real mountain to climb (and it’s not surgery or treatment).
  • What I am passionate about – mental health post treatment
  • Questions – if anyone has any?? (Click here and enter your question – don’t be shy, I won’t publish your name you can remain anonymous).
  • Volunteering
  • Breasts, Cans, Knockers, Tits, Boobs… Adjusting to my scars and how I see them now.
  • And whatever else transpires…
