So its Breast Cancer month and to date this year I’ve stayed pretty quiet … am sure most of you know I diagnosed myself 18 months ago at the ripe old age of 37yrs (to say it was a shock is an understatement). However the blog this week isn’t around education or early detection as I feel like I’ve done enough of that over the past year. Instead, I wanted to focus on ‘What to do if someone you know gets diagnosed.’
As a mother of four daughters myself the daily school run has become a mere formality (no I don’t have nannies or an au pair or anything of the like for those who ask). I do it myself. Shock horror.
I learnt diplomacy very fast …. From turning down married All Blacks to back peddling when I asked another rugby player what he did for a job only to be told by the magazine editor (in a not so nice tone) “He’s the captain of the All Blacks”. A sports watcher I am not.
