Georgie was diagnosed the first time with Breast Cancer 20 years ago. I’m married to Clive and have 4 children and 7 Grandchildren.
I had a lumpectomy followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Six years later I was diagnosed again and had a full masectomy. Two years later I had my first reconstruction using a stomach muscle (tranflap).
Seven years later I was diagnosed again, this time on the left side and had a full mastectomy with reconstruction using my back muscle. Following surgery I had one treatment of chemotherapy and eighteen treatments of Herceptin.
Following successful fundraising I along with other patients helped form SELBCT.org. I wanted to give back a little for all the wonderful care I had received.
