I am fundraising to say thank you to BCFNZ and pay it forward.

I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in October 2015 and I am coming up to 4 years cancer free, and feel well enough now to start doing more to help fundraise and spread awareness for the great work The Breast Cancer Foundation do for women like me.

Personally, I did not approach anyone for support at the time I was going through surgery and treatment, I buried my head in the sand and didn’t want to deal with it. I sort of went into a hermit mode and focused on work and radiotherapy.

Subsequently, I have joined Mybc and done a 10 week rehab course.

I wish I had engaged more with BCF at the time rather than being in denial and trying to pretend cancer never happened. I think I would have had a much better recovery. I think BCF is amazing, and I want to support it going forward.
