I first had a scare with breast cancer when I was in my late thirties. As it turned out it was only cysts but from then on I had a feeling that me and breast cancer would unfortunately become better acquainted.
My story started in February half term of 2013, I was 61 years old and Mike and I went to buy our rings for our wedding on 20 July that year. On the following Monday I visited my GP with a lump in my right breast.
Yvonne Newbold was diagnosed with bi-lateral breast cancer in May 2012, two completely different and unrelated tumours, and spent the next 10 months on a merry-go-round of surgery, chemo and radiotherapy.
