I’m 52, with wonderful parents, brother and sister-in-law, a beautiful cat and some amazing friends.

I’m medically retired, but previously worked in education.

I received my secondary diagnosis is 2019, a full 17 years after I had primary breast cancer. I couldn’t have been more surprised, as I thought cancer was part of my past, not my present. I’ve had surgery to remove a large area of metastatic diseased bone from my femur, which is why I use crutches or a wheelchair.

I’m looking forward to helping to raise awareness about secondary breast cancer, and to support other people affected by the disease. The strength we have amongst our secondary community is incredible, and I want to help share that with all who need it.
