Nearly all my womanly parts had been taken away. I found it extremely hard getting used to my new body and image, especially when shopping for clothes. Stringy tops, deep v-necklines were a no-no as I felt so self-conscious about the way I looked.

There is nothing wrong with pink, and I am 100% supportive of breast cancer awareness, being a survivor myself. But there is a growing sense in the cancer world that so-called Pinkification and Pinkwashing are trivialising the disease.

It's that time of year again - Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It's 19 years since the late Evelyn Lauder asked me to help her in her newly formed Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign - the BCA Campaign. I'll never forget her saying to me that women all over the world were dying and no one was talking about it. She told me how inspired she was by the Aids activists who were doing such an amazing job and she said it was our turn to push this disease into the spotlight. And boy, did she succeed.

What many people with breast cancer ask me is "what does 'normal' mean now"? And how does a person find their 'new normal' after the huge impact of a breast cancer diagnosis? There are so many unanswered questions, fears and anxieties.

I think a lot of people have been touched by breast cancer either personally or know of some friend or family member who has gone through the journey. I call it a journey because that's precisely what it is and I know it personally but thankfully, mine was caught really early.

In March 2005 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. They told me it was secondary breast cancer because it had already spread to my liver and lungs. If the treatment went well, I would have years, not months, but unlike women diagnosed with primary breast cancer, I could never be cured.

Call me naïve, but at no point did it even occur to me that they might be doing these tests because they thought I had cancer. On Friday 22 June, I skipped out of work and to my appointment. "Did you bring anyone with you today?" the nurse asked. And that was the moment I knew.
