My story

[p]It has been about a year since I was diagnosed with mouth cancer. I was 24 and never saw it coming; I have never smoked or taken drugs and have always looked after my body. I was about 50 years younger than the typical patient and no one could quite believe I had been dealt this hand. [/p][p]I underwent two major surgeries to remove the tumour and reconstruct almost half of my tongue, a further minor surgery, two skin grafts, blood transfusions, spent three weeks being tube fed and about four weeks in hospital. My body went through all that and so much more in those months, but the human body is amazing and I made a full recovery thanks to the amazing team at Broomfield Hospital and all the support of all my friends and family. [/p][p]Living with a cancer diagnosis is hard every day - something no one can prepare you for - and I have physical scars that I have to live with for the rest of my life but I am very fortunate and have been cancer free for almost a year now. [/p][p]By taking part in the Mouth Cancer Awareness Walk, I am hoping to raise awareness of the potential signs of mouth cancer for those who aren't aware as well as raise some money to help those who went through what I did and who are fighting mouth cancer.[/p]
