My story

Leisha

I would not have got through 2018 if it had been for the amazing support from my family and friends. I will never forget that first appointment! I don't think any one who hears the words "I'm sorry but it's cancer. Probably stage 2" ever does. The bottom fell out of my world in that instant.

I never thought it could get any worse. But in June this year it did! The words I never wanted to hear were spoken by my consultant " I am so sorry Leisha, but it's back and its spread"

So back to The Christie we have gone and after a whirlwind of scans, tests and appointments I am on a treatment plan which will hopefully allow me to stick around for my amazing husband and son for as long as possible.

Life is so fleeting in the grand scheme of things and I want to spend the rest of mine surrounded by my nearest and dearest, they know who they are. I also want to raise as much money as I can for Prevent Breast Cancer and Macmillan. Both charities have been amazing in the support they are giving me.

I truly hope that eventually no other woman has to hear those dreaded words. It's a club no-one should have to join.

Who knew a walk round the block with a girl from work would turn into a weekly fix that neither of us could live without.

Who knew that all that walking would lead to 10k runs and walks for charity.

Who knew that you would break your leg and instead of a 10k, we were able to have tea and cake and a catch up with others! (Thanks Mike for pushing her off the doorstep!!).

But that’s why I’m here hosting a coffee morning with my friend. When faced with a wall you find a way to get over it. Unable to do charity work by walking you arrange a fundraising coffee morning. It’s your determination to help others that makes me want to help too. You’re always there for me and I’m always here for you xx
