About Me

Hi, for those who don’t know me, my name is Lisa.  I’m a 43 year old woman living in the West Midlands.

I was diagnosed with Grade 2 Breast Cancer in September 2011 aged 41 and I am using this blog so my family, friends and anyone who wishes to can keep up with me and whats happening  with my treatments.  Anyone who knows me knows I love humor, and I refuse to dip into any head tilting and pitiful sorrows. I’m not saying I havent had bad days….I have very bad days…you just wont see it but I can tell you about them so you understand if im not myself, you must not take it personally. If what I go through strikes a chord with someone else who has this awful disease, then im glad to have shared what I can. I have read other people’s breast cancer blogs, and they have made me laugh, cry, get angry, feel sad and feel happy. I read blogs which suddenly come to an abrupt end….and im left wondering whether they lost their battle with the Big “C” or just got bored, got cured and are travelling round the world in a state of sheer happiness. Which reminds me…..I better give my hubby my password! Just in case! lol

Devastated as I am, I have to believe that I will survive this and I have years ahead of me to enjoy. None of us know our today’s or tomorrows and anyone of us can be struck down with an illness at anytime or hit by the local bus. This is simply a season I must walk through in my life and see where it takes me. I am blessed to have seen my 42 years as I know people who didn’t live to see their 40’s….therefore when I think this is so unfair….it was more unfair for them. I’ve had children, I have a beautiful granddaughter, I have the most wonderful husband, a nice home a good job and have a blessed life so I am grateful, regardless.

Just a few weeks ago 7 people were killed in an instant on the M5 in a tragic multi vehicle pile up, they didn’t get a second chance. To date, 389 soldiers have been killed in active service in Afghanistan, they didn’t get a second chance. Whilst at home having treatment, the trial took place of the beast that murdered Joanna Yeates whose body was found on Christmas Day 2010, she wasnt granted a second chance.  I’m getting that second chance, the team of doctors and nurses taking care of me are doing thier utmost to rid me of this disease.  I am humbled and I am so very thankful I have the NHS to do this for me at no charge to myself.

So sit back, have a flick through and if you want to leave a comment feel free to do so.

Love & Light to you all

Or Bless Up – as I usually say! 🙂

  7. Hi Lisa,
    My neice Angela Walker introduced me to your diary contents. It is full of insperattional thoughts and considerate information. Although my cancer is in the head of my Pancreas, I was still inspiried by your words of encouragement. I am praying that God will give me the strength to hold on to his onchanging hands and promises and believe he will direct the surgeon who is in charge of my care to work in his command and will. I am praying for you to keep strong and continue to be the light set up on the hill.

    Hi Lisa, Thank you so much for sharing your journey with us. I was diagnosed with grade 2 breast cancer in January of this year and have 5 of my 8 lots of chemo. I know that I have this ting beat and I believe you do too. It’s just a crappy journey we have to under take before getting the all clear. May God continue to watch over you.
