The C-Word

I just finished watching something amazing, so .... so brilliantly filmed that I had tears streaming down my face and a giant frog in my throat.  The C-Word based on the real life of Lisa Lynch - young, married, successful and breast cancer sufferer.  The BBC adaptation staring Sheridan Smith (she portrays Lisa in such an incredible way) and Paul Nicholls (still hot in case you are wondering) brings to life the journey of Lisa and her husband Peter.  From diagnosis, living with cancer, recovering and finding out the news it has returned and is terminal.

I felt so moved I had to write and share it on the blog.  Her story brings to light that breast cancer or any cancer for that matter doesn't discriminate against age, sex or whether you are good or bad.  It just happens and it sucks.  Lisa created an outlet where she could pen her thoughts, fears and feelings.  Alright Tit is still going strong today with the help of family and friends and it is a great read.  During her treatment she also wrote a book which documents in detail her story.  Her telling her story has helped so many others.

Sadly Lisa lost her fight, but her memory lives on at Alright Tit.  If you're worried about anything, a lump, bump, pain, mole, your big toe - go seek medical help and get it checked.  Always better to be safe than sorry isn't it?! :-)
