My younger sister Wendy (56) and I have both been diagnosed and treated for Breast Cancer in the past 12 months. Wendy was way worse off than me. She had a double mastectomy and has endured chemo, radiotherapy and is having herceptin every 3 weeks. I was lucky my mammogram picked up a tumour. Early detection meant I had a lumpectomy and radiotherapy.

We also lost our precious Mother 2 weeks after my diagnosis. It's been really tough but the Breast Cancer Foundation have been amazing. We can't thank them enough so doing the walk is just a small way of giving something back, and if we can raise money, and awareness, then we will be very happy sisters 😀
