Hi, I'm 27 and have very recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. I'm currently looking at 5 months of chemo and a mastectomy, and possibly radiotherapy at the other end of treatment. The part that I'm really struggling with is my age. Is there anyone else out there around my age who has any advice / would like to chat?
