On World Cancer Day there are many, many personal and inspiring stories.
We wanted to share just one, from our good friend Amanda at Myon Pure. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
‘World Cancer Day – My Story
Aged 33, and just after the birth of my little girl, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. A stage 3 invasive ductal carcinoma which was starting to spread through my body. I’ve been through the traumas of a cancer diagnosis at a young age, had numerous operations, chemotherapy and radiotherapy but despite this, I consider myself to be very lucky. I haven’t “beaten” cancer, nor am I any stronger than the many people who have lost their lives to the cruel disease. I am just extremely lucky that by chance, I found the cancer early, and had the support of an amazing team of oncologists, surgeons, nurses and alternative therapists who worked together to remove the cancer and ensure (I hope) that it doesn’t return.
My cancer experience changed the way I live my life in many ways. It put life in perspective. It made me think about what was really important to me, and lead me to re-asses my work-life balance. What really matters in life? To me, it was spending quality time with my family and doing everything I could to live a long and healthy life. I’d always been relatively fit and ate a healthy balanced diet, but I had never been aware of the amount of chemicals I was putting in to my body through my skincare products. Once I started looking into this I was shocked by some of the harsh and potentially damaging ingredients often found in high street cosmetics and started researching the benefits of natural and organic skincare. Fast forward a couple of years, and Myon Pure was born.www.myonpure.co.uk is an online boutique dedicated to souring the finest natural and organic skincare which will benefit your skin and body.
