Breast Cancer

Hi. I'm Isabel from Castletownbere, West Cork, Ireland. The week I was 35 years old I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Which was shocking to say the least. I have my own business, Issie's Handmade Chocolate. I am married with two sons, Thomas ages 7 and Joshua ages 4. My life has changed completely to be honest. My operation was on 8th September, 2011 and my chemotherapy starts on 12th Oct, 2011. In many ways, life is better than ever now because I appreciate all the small things. The support has been amazing from my friends, family and the community.

This only my first blog so I will keep everyone posted on how I am doing. It is an amazing journey I am on and I cherish everyday of my new "cancer life".
