Breast Cancer Conference
I had been feeling a little down, everything had backlogged whilst I was having treatment.... and now hormone therapy! ....I so wanted to talk to other ladies who had been through the hormone therapy and had a young family....but I had only met 2 other ladies in a simular position....
I had been attending my local support group, and although most of the ladies were older they were very compassionate and so supportive. but they couldn't really understand the challenges of having breast cancer treatment and looking after young children and also the changes in self image and sexuality that comes along with being a young women with part of your breast missing.
Then I got a call from the co-ordinator of my support group Gayle Anderson, with an offer to attend the young womens conference! WONDERFUL this is EXACTLY what I needed!
I can't tell you how much this has lifted my mood and given me hope that I will be able to meet other ladies in a simular position and get some information about how to help my children deal with the whole cancer thing. This conference is a real gift to young women with Breast cancer and I am so excited to be a part of it! :O)
