It's all about me ...

My name's Kate and I was born in 1973, the second of a stroppy pair of identical twins.

Me and the lovely Mr P.
two days before my biopsy

There is no immediate history of breast cancer in my family but in 1997 my sister found a lump on her chest.  It turned out to be a fibroadenoma and was successfully removed. So when a lump was found on my right breast in late 2011, that’s what I assumed it would be. I was wrong ...

On 25th January 2012, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Apart from being shocked, I was really bloody annoyed: "What a massive inconvenience ... !?" I thought. "I like my life the way it is. I really don't have time for this sort of carry on!"

And so I started this blog. Mainly to keep friends and family updated but also for my own sake - to capture the good days to lighten the bad.

Because I've never been one to suffer fools gladly, and cancer is one fool that I'm certainly not prepared to entertain. In fact, Cancer Can F*ck Off!
