One of the most important things I learnt was the need to listen and look after our mind, body, spirit and emotions. I realise we cannot always do this, we shift from time-to-time and if we are feeling low, we get stuck in there, but by listening to them, we can grow, move forward and make the best decisions for us.
In 2015, I was diagnosed with a new breast cancer (not secondary) and underwent another mastectomy. Because I gained so much from Penny Brohn, I returned and attended a two-day course which was incredibly rewarding. I continue to keep in contact with staff even now.
If you are reading this and have cancer – please, do not hesitate to contact Penny Brohn. They are waiting for your call and will help you a great deal, with their compassion and understanding. Also, if you are able to donate a bit, this allows others with cancer to access Penny Brohn alongside the NHS.
