Thought I would write a blog about this new unwelcome but challenging chapter in my life.  What you will find is an honest opinion of my journey with cancer – if coarse language and dodgy wit are not your thing maybe this is not for you!   Doing this for myself (I think) and hoping that it will make women understand breast cancer more and get checking those boobies!!!!!

Feel free to join me and comment on anything of interest will be updating it regularly!

If reading blog start from the first post - Tummy Ache to Dodgy Tit

Cheers and this time next year at my party I will be toasting with “Bottoms Up”   Also if leaving a post let me know who you are as most are coming up as Anonymous :-)   I know I have imaginary ones alright!    Feel free to contact me on

    Hey, Dee,
    I reckon nice shot, I reckon you could deff pull more than a few with the bicker look. How well that would have gone down in Brittas Bay. Not quite sure I want to show it to Paddy or not. i like your writing in the blog, just saying it as it comes to mind. Its good for you I’m sure but good for others too that are not quite as expressive but going through the same shit. Keep it up. You no I luv u BFF

    Hii dee,

    my names shatha and I have seen your blog you are truly inspirational. I would like to ask you to help me out .I am a applied science student and I have been asked to interview people who have experienced with cancer. I was wondering if you could help me out by allowing me to interview you about how cancer affected your life. If you are okay with that please email me at

    Thank you in advance

    Fair play Dee! You are some woman! I love the spirit and tone of your blog. It’s so important for this subject to be talked about. My dad was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer and he too has started writing a blog, its in a different vein to yours but hopefully it will also be of some comfort to cancer patients and their loved ones: Keep doing what your doing! You’re fab. XoXo

  18. wow..that will be great…

  19. Oh, really it was excellent. Thank you

  20. That was a great and comprehensive article…all the tips enumerated and explained will be helpful for those who are wise enough to tap from it. Any business nowadays without social media signals and presence may not make it to the outermost, and investment too is part of the key to success in business. Keep up the good work.
