Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s 90 bloggers campaign

This post is for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. It is part of Kate on Thin Ice’s 90 Bloggers campaign, in which we’ve been asked to write 90 words about an important woman in our life. I can’t single out just one; there are so many women who are important to me, so many who inspire me, so here 90 words on thousands and thousands of women around the world.


There are too many women who have heard those 3 little words that changed their lives forever

 ‘You have cancer’.

They endure the gruelling treatment, they worry about how their loved ones are coping with all that cancer brings. They lose their hair, their breasts, but never their grace, no matter how grim it gets.

And they help others, women from many different backgrounds have reached out, and helped their ‘sisters’ get through this, all members of a club that no-one wants to join, but we all understand each other.

And that’s your 90.

“Pink Ribbon Bingo have pledged to support Breakthrough Breast Cancer all year round with 15% of the gross revenue accrued through online play on the site being donated to the charity. Visitors also have the opportunity to donate a percentage of their winnings directly to the charity. Along with the fundraising element, Pink Ribbon Bingo and The Daily Mail online will be helping the charity to raise awareness by promoting their vital health messages such as TLC (Touch, Look, Check).

  1. Powerful post. Glad you are still here and yes sadly its sometimes takes the really tough stuff to bring out the best in sisters.
    Thank you for participating.
    My late Mum said telling her children was the very worst part of cancer for her.
    Pleased you are still here and doing good things.

  2. I can’t imagine what it must be like, and hope I never find out. Well chosen and well written.
