CANCER: App can help you move on

I know only too well that getting off the treatment treadmill can be the most daunting part of breast cancer.

I found it as hard, if not even harder than my diagnosis.

When I finished my hospital treatment, people expected me to celebrate, but instead I was scared about the future.

I became obsessed with my diet, struggled with returning to work and hated the way I looked.

I didn’t know if I should I live every day like my last, or try to forget what I had been through.

I wish I had somewhere to turn at that confusing time.

That’s why Breast Cancer Care’s new BECCA app is so vital.

It provides bite-sized, practical information and lifestyle tips to support women in the same position as I was.

It can be a huge challenge to face life after breast cancer with confidence.

So please, if you know someone struggling after treatment, encourage them to download BECCA from the App Store and make this the day they start to move forward.
