Breast Cancer: 9 Years On

It seems incredible to me that it is nine years since my diagnosis of breast cancer.  When I first started this blog I used to mark my “cancerversary” each year, but I no longer want to do this. It smacks of celebration and I am too painfully aware of those we have lost to cancer along the way.  Instead, I want to mark this year’s milestone by sharing a video of a talk I gave recently to a group of medical educators. It reflects my journey from the shock of cancer diagnosis to the patient advocate I am today, passionate about the power of social media to educate, support and connect us globally.
