I am so thankful for Vicki’s support. You just couldn’t go through something like that alone. I know it was hard for her, not being with me in the hospital. It’s over now, apart from a few check-ups and I’m looking forward to getting on with my life and back into my garden. We also hope to do the Wilderness Train Trip from Strahan to Queenstown over summer and hopefully get to Canberra to see my daughter.
My final message on Male Breast Cancer Awareness Day is to all the men: get it checked out. I nearly left my run too late and maybe it was made worse by the delays caused by COVID, but don’t let other problems or issues stop you from getting medical treatment because apart from saving your life it can also reduce the recovery time and the worry for your family and friends.
