my own concerns as an Indigenous Australian with breast cancer

I already had my fifth chemotherapy. Just want to share my experience of it. My body shape has changed a lot. I used to be overweight, but now I looks very slim. Haha. Before chemotherapy, I was so scared and feeling helpless. But you would get help from the health professions. I used to think it is results of fatalism and very aggressive to receive the treatment due to my background. But now, I changed, I felt I should use a scientific concept to look at my cancer. I hope Indigenous women who suffer from breast cancer could look at self in a scientific perspective, so we could take more options to treat breast cancer. I asked the help from community service when I was feeling not good. They provide lots of help for me. They let me feel the most important thing for me is a healthy life, it over than everything . I know what kind of life is going to live because there are so many people who love me and care about me.
