Hi, my name is Megan (more commonly known as Megsy) I'm 48 years old and I found out a few weeks ago that I have Stage 3 Triple Negative Breast Cancer, a rare and aggressive form of Cancer.
It was a total shock, no symptoms, no signs, nothing, I went for a Mammogram on my left breast due to some soreness, as a precaution only.
As it was my first Mammogram, they wanted to image both breasts and the Cancer was found in my right breast, it was only by chance it was found.
I've been advised by everyone along the way that I am so lucky, they found it when they did, I would never have felt it (due to where the Cancer is) and by the time I had any symptoms, it would have been too late.
I am raising money to put towards getting a wig made from my own hair and any other expenses which will arise whilst I take on the biggest challenge of my life.
It's funny (not haha), I have been growing my hair for over 3 years with a plan in 2022 to raise money & awareness for Breast Cancer & Blood Cancer (World's Greatest Shave), I was going to shave my hair & donate it to people who need wigs made due to Cancer, NEVER in a million years did I think I would need to be doing it for myself.
I have had to stop work so I can focus on giving myself the best chance at beating this, this has raised another lot of issues, such as how will I pay the mortgage, how will I be able to live. It is going to be a long hard battle, however, I know with the love & support I have around me, I will give it a red hot go.
My surgery is on Saturday 8th of January 2022, after that is when the "fight begins".
Any donations will be received with the greatest appreciation.
Love to everyone Megsy xxx
