Discovering my 'new normal' after breast cancer diagnosis at 34.

03 October 2014


This is just a quick post to share my good news that after 5 years of treatment for breast cancer (diagnosis in Jan 2009 at age 34), as of 24 September 2014 I am finally off all my medications.

This is rather a huge milestone for me, as I am sure you can imagine. I switched from the hormonal treatment of Zoladex + Arimidex in Sept 2013 to Tamoxifen, and seeing as Sept 2014 is 5 years since commencing hormonal treatment, I am have now officially been given the all clear to come off the Tamoxifen too. I have strict instructions to remain vigilant however, and act on any changes that may occur. I will continue to have yearly mammograms most likely for the rest of my life.

I am looking forward to non-cancer related challenges and events in 2015, including - hopefully - my 50th parkrun!

With love and best wishes,
