Jane’s Story

“I have loved my appointments – it’s a big thing when a professional touches you and it isn’t part of cancer treatment.”

Jane L, Former breast cancer patient

“In October 2017 I was called for my 3 yearly breast cancer mammogram, and I remember rushing to the appointment at the mobile unit in a Sports Centre car park as I was so busy with things to do that day.  Not long afterwards, after more tests, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer.  Over the course of 2018, led by a wonderful team of medical staff I had 3 operations, chemotherapy and finally radiotherapy.  In January 2019 I had my last appointment with my oncologist and walked out of the hospital, but before she said goodbye my oncologist told me about My Cancer My Choices. 

I have found that it’s a difficult time finishing treatment, the structure of your life changes and I was left totally exhausted with ongoing physical issues such as neuropathy in my leg and foot.  After a few weeks I contacted My Cancer My Choices and I spoke to a really friendly member of the team who suggested reflexology.  I have loved my appointments – it’s a big thing when a professional touches you and it isn’t part of cancer treatment.  They’ve also given me a chance to discuss any problems with someone experienced in post cancer issues and I have left each session feeling less anxious and more rested.  After a year of disrupted sleep, I am finally sleeping much better again.  Thank you to all at My Cancer, My Choices you have been an important part of my beginning to move forward.
