At the National Breast Cancer Foundation, we're so grateful that our friend Sinead, who has benefited from the research you funded, is able to share her personal breast cancer story.
"When I was diagnosed, in my mind I thought, "If only today didn't happen." Looking back now, I realise that that was the beginning of a massive road I had to travel on.
But, thank goodness that day happened. Because if that day hadn't had happened I would not have received the lifesaving treatment as a result of
breast cancer research.
I wouldn't be here.
I'd convinced myself it wasn't breast cancer. And I think that's maybe what the majority of women do. You think 'it can't happen to me'. And when I saw that doctor's face, it was just grey. She just looked at me and said,
'I don't have good news.'
I could tell she was quite shaky, and I think from that alone, my heart just started to race. Each day of good health continues to be a gift that research has given me, and for that I will remain eternally grateful."
Breast cancer affects everyone in a different way. If you're interested in sharing your breast cancer story then please look into the National Breast Cancer Foundation's Speakers Network. Our speakers are all volunteers who have been either directly or indirectly affected by breast cancer and want to share their stories to help encourage and inspire others.
All the details can be found here on our SPEAKERS NETWORK PAGE.
