Here’s to Heidi!

I think every woman who is going through breast cancer needs someone in their lives like my friend Heidi.

She’s around the same age as me, and also has breast cancer. We were diagnosed at a similar time, had surgery at a similar time, and have been through a lot together.

We met totally randomly on a breast cancer website that neither of us goes to any more, so it was total chance and a very lucky one at that!

We’ve kept each other going through this- she’s been having a tough time with radiotherapy (her treatment isn’t including chemo) but has still managed to make me laugh through the chemo. After our surgery, when we couldn’t shave our armpits or wear deoderant, she nicknamed me Stinky Suzy and I called her Hairy Heidi. As you know, I find making light of the situation the best way to try and deal with it, and she has really helped me to do this.

Heidi’s last day of radiotherapy is tomorrow, and I am so excited that she will have finished her treatment!

So, Heidi, here’s looking at you!!! May tomorrow be the first day of the rest of your (very LONG, very HEALTHY) life.

And here’s a song for you, I know the band are one of your favourites. 🙂

Keane- Everbody’s Changing

    You go girls! It’s amazing what you’ve had to deal with in such a short space of time and I salute you for taking it on the chin and fighting back so well.

    Aw, thanks, Schnookums! xx

    Ok, now I am in tears!!! What a lovely thing to have written and to read. thank you. It goes both ways and i truly believe that it was fate that we met that night on the website.

    When both our treatments are all done and dusted I will fly up for a night and we can have a bottle of bubbly, a can of deoderant and some waxing strips!!

    Lots of love to you stinky, and here’s to our getting better.

    Hairy heidi xxx

    Love you, Hairy!!!! ((hugs))

    Heheh, to me the most amusing thing was the idea of a drunken deodorant/waxing party. Sounds like the montage scene from a Lifetime movie! (And the song would of course be the music for the montage, it would fit.) 😀

    Good luck and best wishes to both you ladies.
