Liz, VIC – I was diagnosed at 33, then mum and sister diagnosed within three months

April 2nd, 2014

I was diagnosed at 33, had a four year old child and my mum and sister were both diagnosed within three months of me. I had a mastectomy, chemo and radiotherapy, oral and monthly injections.

My hubby has spoken at The Lodge in Canberra as guest of Tim Mathieson, partner of former Prime Minister Julia Gillard. We have held Mini Fields of Women and attended Field of Women. My hubby help set up and launch Partner Support online.

I recently came off my medications early to attempt to have a baby. After two rounds of In vitro fertilisation I fell pregnant and now have a little boy (but lost his twin).

I have gone back on oral and monthly injections and within the next few months will undergo mastectomy and double reconstruction.
