Cheryl's story

I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2003 when I was 48 yrs old. It was an emotional roller coaster and it's only been recently that I've been able to talk about the feelings that I had and have had since.

I relay as a positive action in my life to help find the answers needed to eradicate this disease, ALL types of this disease.

Being involved in Relay For Life has let me openly show how I feel about my journey. I've been through the gambit of emotions - disbelief, anger, sadness, fear, uncertainty and there's always that niggle in the back of my mind "Will it come back".

 I've been lucky so far and lucky to have good people around me. I made informed decisions about my treatment and was pleased that I had a good team who understood where I was coming from.

 Get involved with Relay For Life and allow yourself to be part of something that will make a difference to the future of fighting this unwanted interference in someone's life.

 Throw yourself into the mix and have some fun while doing some good.
