Having treatment & now my mum’s been diagnosed as well


I’ve had mastectomy/ recon a month ago and have more surgery next week as SNB showed some cancer cells in One lymph node. 

been doing really well and then my mum called today to say she’d been diagnosed with BC as well.

my head is all over the place. This is worse than my own diagnosis. 

has anyone else been in this situation? 


Hi EJBSinger

Thank you for posting. We’re sorry to read about your mother’s diagnosis, on top of your own diagnosis and current treatment. You may benefit from chatting with one of our specialist’s nurses. They can offer clinical information as well as support and a listening ear. You can reach them on 0808 800 6000.

They are available Monday-Friday 9am-4pm and Saturdays from 9am-1pm.

Sending you our warmest wishes,


Hi Em/EJBSinger - I’m so sorry to read your post and didn’t want to go by without sending a big hug. I would really encourage you to take up the offer Saskia suggested to call one of the lovely nurses to chat things through. I wish you and your Mum all the very best. Evie xx
