Emma never thought that she would be diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 34. Her immediate thought was, “will I survive to see my beautiful girls grow up?”
The day after meeting her breast surgeon Emma underwent a mastectomy - the only option available to her. Following her surgery Emma met with Heather, one of Breast Cancer Care WA’s specialist breast care nurses, who shared vital information and gave Emma the emotional support she needed during this difficult time.
While the operation went well, only a week later Emma was told devastating news – the cancer had spread to her lymph nodes and would require aggressive chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
Through all this Emma remain stoic and determined to fight as hard as she could. Breast Cancer Care WA did all they could to support her, and now, 20 months on, Emma has finally started the breast reconstruction process.
Emma is incredibly grateful for the amazing support Breast Cancer Care WA has given her, particularly through its Breast Cancer Care WA’s Young Women’s Support Group. She said, “I am so thankful this service is available. I have met some wonderful ladies who know exactly what I have been through”.
Red Dot is proud to be running a fundraising campaign to raise money for Breast Cancer Care WA. This fantastic service offers support and comfort to young women suffering through the rigours of breast cancer treatment.
