I’d just broken up with my boyfriend and was looking for somewhere to live. “Your cousin Brad’s got a spare room,” my mum said. We’d grown up together and were close. “It’ll be good to have some help with the rent,” Brad said when I called him. So I moved in. It was August 2017. Brad was a soldier. He’d lost friends overseas. Though he didn’t talk about his job much, I knew the loss of his mates had deeply hurt him. It meant he lived for today and wasn’t interested in serious relationships. He was too nice a guy to...
    It was a clear, sunny, blue-sky day the day I learned I had breast cancer. The brutally unexpected so often seems to happen on such days. For a few months over the past summer, I had an intermittent sharp pain under my left breast, as if the wire from a bra was cutting in. Sometimes it woke me at night, sometimes it disappeared for days. But there was no lump or general tenderness.  When I mentioned the pain to anyone, they would say: ‘Well at least it’s not breast cancer because you don’t get a pain with breast cancer.’ But then I read about how Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding, who sadly died of breast cancer in September, experienced a pain which she attributed to a guitar strap rubbing her breast. It made me think that I should get my pain investigated – but not right then. At some point. In the future. It was a clear, sunny, blue-sky day the day I learned I had breast cancer. The brutally unexpected so often seems to happen on such days I...

It's just that this one didn't go away. “It didn't really affect me unless I exerted myself. If I was playing a sport I would cough, or when I was lying down trying to go to sleep, I'd cough a...

    IT’S my birthday, a birthday I never thought I would see. And right now I am definitely going to cry because I want to, laugh because I can - and most likely throw up with chemo side effects at some point in the day. 2Deborah James has made it to 40 years of age while living with advanced bowel cancerCredit: Instagram/bowelbabe 2Deborah was diagnosed at the age of 35 and was told it was unlikely she would see 40 years old. She is pictured on Lorraine earlier this weekCredit: Rex Reaching this milestone is really significant for so many reasons. I was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer when I was just 35. I always knew the statistics were stacked against me. The idea of reaching my fifth decade seemed almost impossible. I never let myself picture me as a 40-year-old. I never dreamed I would get here. That’s because there was no textbook example of someone like me, who had lived five years after diagnosis. I didn’t have any hope to cling to. But herein lies the beauty of...
