On 23rd November 2012 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and my whole life changed. I vowed to make my battle with the big C as short and fun as possible. I blog about my journey to remind you lot to check your boobies, raise awareness and tell my story.

me to the hospital. It was really nice to have a proper catch up with her and
we did a lot of laughing.
On Friday night I went to a Halloween bash dressed as a
vampire (minus the fangs because they were really annoying) and I had a great

In other news I have been nominated for PVB woman of the
