My Guardian Angels

Breast clinics are attached to hospitals as a support for women going through breast cancer treatments. It’s a follow up centre to get drains removed, queries answered, and referrals to counsellors/psychologists and much more. My nurse from the Mater Private Breast Cancer Centre http://breastcancer.mater.org.au/ has arranged to throw some private funding from the Breast Clinic my way for a Nanny. BUT, there’s more … she randomly met some women she knew out and about on the weekend (it’s shrouded in mystery, I’ll never know their names) who had a successful fundraiser on the weekend and wanted to give a portion of money directly to a women with breast cancer in a difficult situation (well, we all are) – and – I am officially on a tricky, muddy, tight-rope of a path with a son on the same said path so they donated the money to Felix and I. And now my lovely nurse has put me in-touch with a Nanny service and she’ll organise the payment side of things with my pooled funds. How wonderful is that? Bloody wonderful in fact. Thank you world.

    How brilliant to know the kind people outnumber the unkind. That’s fantastic.
    And the blog is brilliant, Josie. I’ll be away after the 28th but I’ll check in from time to time.
    Good luck with navigating the remaining treatments straight onto that cancer-free road.

      Hi Sarah,

      I thought of you the other day and would love to hear how and where you are. I’m back from mastectomy Monday – bit sore and swollen, but cancer free (pathology on b.tissue came back negative). Yahoo. Josie xx.

        That’s fantastic, Josie. I thought of you the other day, too. I bet it was the same other day.
        I’m coming to Brisbane next Wednesday. Will be staying for 6 weeks or so. We’ll make a date to meet.
        Congratulations,
        Sarah x
