Beach Walks and Friendship

Felicity, Annette and Connie

Me (left-hand side), Annette (centre) and Connie (right-hand side).

The three of us met one another through Western Health where we received our treatment. We were asked to participate as models in a fashion parade and fundraiser as part of the Breast West annual Gala ‘night of nights.’ On the night, alongside 11 survivors each of us were paired up with our very own AFL Western Bulldog player. The experience of being made to feel like a celebrity is still one of the best nights of my life, with memories and new friendships that will certainly stand the test of time.

Annette, Connie and I are out on a weekly walk at Altona Beach where we join a Breast Cancer survivors walking group that meets every Tuesday morning. We have no issues with finding commonality and strength in solidarity. Our walk includes a half way stop at a Pier street cafe for a chat and coffee.

  1. Hi Felicity.
    Thanks for the follow.
    Like you, am a breast cancer survivor, having ha my surgery in Oct 2016. I was lucky not to need chemo, just radiotherapy and my two subsequent mammograms have come back clear.
    Hope you find things of interest here in pensitivity101. Please add comments, I love the interaction and feedback.
    take care,
    Di
