In many countries, October is breast cancer awareness month, helping to increase attention and support for the awareness, early detection and treatment, as well as palliative care, of this illness.
As many of you know, this October, I'm celebrating one year since my diagnosis in October, 2016. Yes, I'm celebrating the awareness of my own mortality. Celebrating the fact that I was lucky I had a treatable form, and lucky to live in a country where treatment is not only free, but top-class. Celebrating life. Celebrating being a better person (I hope!).
With many thanks to fellow author, Patricia Sands, for featuring my breast cancer journey (and a few free books!) on her blog today.
