Lis's story: BRiC for Breast Cancer Awareness


When lockdown hit I was halfway through chemo. Every time the phone rang I was terrified it would be the hospital phoning to cancel my treatment. Fortunately my chemo went ahead as planned but it was hard having to attend alone. I then had a long delay before radiotherapy started and this left me feeling very low and vulnerable. The delay was due to reducing the number of patients in the dept. to keep it Covid safe. The moving forward course and other therapies I had planned were all cancelled. It has been hard and I’ve felt very low and isolated at times. Telephone appointments didn’t suit me and I often forgot what I needed to ask.
