10 years on - Survivor

It’s been such a long time since I’ve been on this chat and tonight I’m wanting to celebrate a milestone for me and give others hope- chemotherapy is definitely a great part of why I’m still here 10 years down the track from my diagnosis of stage 3 breast cancer but it takes away so much too. I was shattered to lose my hair but when I lost my eyebrows and eyelashes I was mortified. Thankfully hair and eyelashes grow back, eyebrows too but not the same. Today I put my trust in an amazing process and an incredible lady and I got my eyebrows tattooed- for me this was a big thing and my final F U Cancer moment!!! So if anyone is feeling the same as I did after recovering from the ravages of chemo and you’re wanting to take back your confidence I highly recommend this!!! For those of you currently undergoing treatment there is hope and life after cancer treatment and I wish everyone all the best.

    That is fantastic news & well done for getting your eyebrows tattoo'd back on!  I've seen many ladies with it & it looks terrific!! (Sometimes it looks a bit 'dark' to start off with - but it DOES settle down and looks fabulous!)  Your eyebrows actually frame your face too, so are very important for your general looks.   Mine are almost all grey now - so I have been known to use some mascara on them now & then to give a bit of definition!   LOL

    It is always terrific to hear the Good News Story and yours is just AWESOME!  Well done you xx

    take care

    Dear @Andir,
    Congratulations, and thanks for posting your message. I am seven years down the track, and my eyebrows are still nearly non-existent!
    Best wishes from jennyss in Western NSW
