Ironic it seems in a first go, a case of a breast cancer charity director being diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time has been capturing the attention of media glare.
Even after being diagnosed with breast cancer, Audrey Birt, Breakthrough Breast Cancer's Director for Scotland, took a brave attempt to inspire others to help women suffering with such a disease. Audrey added, “It's not what I was planning' is my mantra about my recent diagnosis of early breast cancer for the second time in my life. The first was in 1994 when I was in my 30s”.
Aged around 50s, Audrey decided to put her personal concerns aside to share her pain and agony with millions of women struggling with breast cancer through a blog.
Audrey is sound believer of the fact that writing online on a blog can prove out to be a great emotional support to the women who are battling with emotional trauma after being diagnosed with breast cancer.
Though women at younger age are at a higher risk of breast cancer, elderly women who are at higher risk of other health concerns in addition to breast cancer are at a higher risk of dying from the same.
