Okay, the last five months have been a very hard time for my family. My sister, who had a baby in January, was diagnosed with breast cancer in May. She's been through her chemotherapy and yesterday she underwent a mastectomy. Luckily it was caught in time and the cancer has now been removed in her surgery yesterday but as any woman will appreciate, there will be a lot of emotional trauma at losing a breast.

She still has a course of radiotherapy to go through but at least now it's all about recovery from now on as the worst is over but it's still going to be a long time before everything is finished as she has to wait a year before getting reconstruction surgery.

Thank goodness she has her little boy, Cillian, to keep her mind focused on. He's just the most beautiful little boy and as good as gold.

Anyway, just thought I'd share.

All my thoughts go to you and your sister, and your families.

Cancer is pure evil. The day a cure is found, the discoverers will be made into living saints and it will be a worldwide holiday forever more.

My thoughts are with you and you loved ones as well. I've seen the other side of a cancer diagnosis too many times in thelast couple years now, and I'm glad that it seems to have been found in time and the outlook is promising Smile

That's tough, CK. You know where I stand.

The most important thing is she's alive, and like you said, she has something very important to keep her going strong. The little man will be well loved.

I didn't know. That must have been really tough. Hope all is well now. My sister's doing okay. She got out of hospital last Tuesday and is recovering well.

Thanks, RC. Just an update - my sister had a check up at the hospital the other day and everything is clear. All the cancer cells that had been present in the tumour had been killed off by the chemotherapy and there were no more left and the lymph nodes that were removed were clear also. So everything is looking very good. Very Happy
