Today and Tomorrow

I am a 9 year survivor of breast cancer and I am writing this blog to tell you that there IS a happy Tomorrow.

I remember the absolute horror of being told that I had cancer, I thought my days were numbered and the end was in sight. No longer that lovely future that seemed to go on forever.

However this is a time when you either accept and fight, or give in and spend the time feeling miserable and despondent. I chose to fight and along with the surgery and treatment and a positive outlook,  I am here today, looking forward to a happy future.

Today we are very fortunate as new treatments are found nearly every year, for all sorts of cancer. The survival rate is increasing and hope in the future looks brighter than ever.
