In September 2017, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had to travel to Bathurst to take my chemotherapy treatments, but after each treatment, I could go back home, with my husband and continue my routine. The fact that I was receiving my treatments near my home and returning home allowed me to continue my part time work as a waitress, as well as continue my dance classes. For me, it was very important to continue my activities and to surround myself with positive people.
My cancer being aggressive, I received my treatments very quickly. But even in this fast pace, the staff of the Oncology Clinic and the doctors took the time to explain to me, step by step, the treatments and follow-ups that I was going to receive.
I encourage you to participate in the Radiothon des Roses. We never know when the disease will hit and who it will hit; it can be you or someone close to you. Your donation will allow our regional hospital to continue to purchase equipment for the fight against cancer and make a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease.
