I was just wondering if anyone on the blog,when they go for their oncology checkups,or with their surgeons,are given blood tests,or any other sort of test,or is it just the standard look at the scar line,listen to the chest,and ask how you have been feeling?Up until now,I have thought that these things are probably enough,along with us keeping a close eye out for any changes that we notice.However,I have been thinking,that I might get a full blood test done,by my GP,as a lot can be seen on a blood test.Does anyone else do anything like this?

I had a moment yesterday :(

I was having a lovely day shopping with my daughter yesterday and she was looking in Just Jeans so I wandered over to a Cosmetics shop for a look.

As I was leaving this young 18-20 came bouncing along as they had  a trolley with cupcakes and pink things for sale for breast cancer month. She then said:

" Would you like something Pink to support breast cancer?"

I looked down at my one breast burst into tears and couldnt utter one word :(

Hasnt happened before, but i think it was her cheery bouncy self asking me when its not a cheery bouncy disease :(

Today I spent 4 hours sitting in a shopping centre selling pink products. I was surprised how many people brought something and how many people just made a donation. My husband came with me and helped, as this bc has affected us both. He has been with me since the start and I think he needs to help as much as I do.  Hope everyone is doing well keep smiling.

Hi everyone,

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a time to acknowledge the significant impact breast cancer has on so many people right across Australia.  It is a time to recongnise the women and men diagnosed with breast cancer, their family, friends and all those around them.
