Recently a lump was discovered on my breast. I named my lump Frida, you may laugh at this but humour is a great help to me in coping with these situations, hence my title, 'Feck Off Frida'. With future treatment I will lose my hair over time and I would like to get there before the treatment does so I have decided to shave my hair off. This will be happening on the 20th of September 2019 in the Clock Tavern, Westport.
This will be an emotional event for me but with the support of my family, friends and Rock Rose House I will be supported through this testing time and I will have control over this situation at least, if I cannot control what's happening in my body.

I am hoping to raise money for Rock Rose House, a very worthy establishment based in Castlebar, Co. Mayo who offer many services to people affected by cancer. http://www.mayocancer.ie
Any donation at all will help me support Rock Rose House who operate on a volunteer basis and continue to help many others like me every day.
"Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life, and when it comes, hold your head high, look it squarely in the eye and say, 'I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.' Then repeat to yourself the most comforting words of all, 'This too will pass'. " - Ann Landers
