I know others have lost the fight for time so I want to give the last word to Angie, whose funeral I covered in one of my blogs. When asked just prior to her death, was she frightened? She replied " After living with this awful disease for so many years, nothing on this earth can scare me now."
I now have had breast cancer twice in my life.The first was in 1994 when I was in my 30s and the second time in May this year. But there is a twist this time - I work as the Director of Breakthrough Breast Cancer in Scotland.
