Last Friday i heard those words that we only ever seem to hear on TV or in a Film and that was “Charmaine you have Cancer”. I have been told that i have breast cancer. This all started with a road accident where i was a passenger of a car and was injured in my chest and had to be cut out the car. Since then i have been having alot of chest pain and i found a lump on my breast and so i went to my GP and she sent me to the Hospital for tests and a Biopsy of the lump.
I had to wait a week that seemed a life time and when i went back last friday i was told it was cancer. At the time i felt i was in a dream and i felt my world had been ripped apart. I felt so scared and angry and wanted to know why i had this at 31!. I was young and i felt fine so why was it me with this?. My friend was there for me and kept me strong as i held on to her for dear life feeling that i was hanging on to my life.
Only for my friend being there and my Mum i know i would never have made it through that door and home. I felt like i was going to die and that i was leaving all those i loved behind. The battle then began.
I have been told that i will have to have a operation to remove it and then if it has spread i will have to face Chemotherapy. I felt like my world was in bits as i was told what i will have to do to win this.
Before my operation i told the hospital i have to do something special that means the world to me and it was something that i know will keep me going. I can’t say what that is on here but i hope that still happens and i get to do that for it is something that will carry me through this.
I am going to have a battle on now but my dear friend told me that i have already won many battles and i can win this one! and i know i will. I want to then go on to help other young women who have this because i feel that there is no support for young women with this and so that is my aim.
I will keep you all up to date with what happens and i hope you send me your love and care for love is a power that can win any battle!
