Breakthrough filming!

I was really chuffed that the Charity Breakthrough for Breast Cancer asked me if they could come to my house and do a short piece of filming.  Of course I had to bring forward my hair appointment.  No-one wants to see bad roots.

3 guys came from the Charity to do the filming.  They bought me a lovely bunch of flowers and were fantastic company.  They all have lively and vibrant personailities.  I had a fantastic few hours with them talking about my journey through breast cancer.  It seems like along time ago now (3 years ago).  breast cancer is not an easy thing to go through but hopefully other Women can see me and think if she did it, so can I.  I remember when I was going through it I looked at Kylie Minogue for inspiration.  I thought to myself if she can do it so can I (and look stylish and gorgeous whilst going through it).

The message Breakthrough want to get through is that they need the continued funding for finding a cure for breast cancer.  They do a phenomenal job, funding research to banish it.  I truly believe that one day it will not exist, or if it does there will be a simple treatment to get rid of it.  One of the hardest things about cancer is that there are still so many unanswered questions, what switches on or off for that matter.  Breakthrough funds the scientists to find out these answers and so that one day we can combat the disease.

Thank you Breakthrough for giving me the opportunity to talk about my experience and to hopefully spread the message of why you are so important to many Women and their survival through Cancer.  Let's face it most of us all know someone who has been affected by cancer and some of us may not realise the important work that Breakthrough does.  80% of women who have Breast Cancer now survive.  They are making leaps and bounds to a Breast Cancer free future, but they need the continued support of sponsorship and fundraising.

  1. I have a friend and a relative who have both recently survived breast cancer. As you say, this is probably due to the research done by doctors and scientists... and all funded by charities.
    Well done to you for helping to raise awareness on this issue. It can't be easy talking about it.
