Lindsey's Story

The Pink Ribbon Foundation is a grant making trust with a mission to fund projects and provide financial support to UK charities which relieve the needs of people who are suffering from, have been affected by breast cancer, or who work to advance the understanding of breast cancer and it's early detection and treatment.

I had my first ever routine over 50's mammogram in mid February this year. Thought no more of it. Got recalled back for further tests at an assessment clinic - still not overly concerned - had read that it can be that some women just need a bit more investigation to rule anything out and most women who come to an assessment clinic do not have breast cancer. Then proceeded to have an ultrasound, which still threw up some concerns so then had to have a biopsy under local anaesthetic - a little more concerned now but still thinking positive and it would be fine. Back a week later for results - I had grade 1 invasive ductal carcinoma, Oestrogen receptor positive. I had no lumps, no symptoms, nothing to suggest anything untoward, it was simply picked up on my first ever breast screening! So luckily within a few weeks of receiving my results (and during the Covid pandemic) I had a lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy and it was successful and apart from now waiting to start a bit of radiotherapy and have hormone therapy for the next 5 years I have been very lucky. Early detection and treatment was key for me and I'm very lucky and grateful that mine was detected and treated so early - the early detection breast screening proved its worth a million times over! 
So for these reasons I am taking part in the 'Walk a Mile a Day in June' to help fundraise for the Pink Ribbon Foundation and give something more than just my gratitude back.
