I was diagnosed with breast cancer end of July 2017 which I fought on my own for 10 months. I'm in remission for 5 years but have Lymphoedama in my right arm which I have therapy for every month. I work part time doing what I've done for the past 20 years caring. I do suffer with fatigue and osteoarthritis but keep smiling and plod on. XX ♥️
