Lisa's story: BRiC for Breast Cancer Awareness

 

I had my final session of chemo cancelled due to Covid and surgery was on, then off, then on again. Attending appointments, surgery and in-patient stays alone were incredibly difficult and isolation at home, at a time when you need family and friends around you the most was incredibly stressful.


I suffered every complication available during treatment and I actually found myself apologising, for ‘only’ having cancer, as I was made to feel, several times, that I had a ‘second rate’ illness. I can understand the concerns, but stopping life saving treatment for fear that you may or may not catch a virus that may or may not kill you is fear on another level.
