On Friday 30-year-old Laura described how 'Losing your hair can feel a lot like losing your femininity.' She's recently plucked up the courage to ditch wearing wigs despite feeling self-conscious about her 'naked scalp' following chemotherapy. In the blog she explains why she felt this decision was necessary and how it seems to be paying off.
Cheryl wrote about a recent scare she had after finding fluid collecting inside her breast. At the time she wrote the blog she was in two minds over what to do about the problem. Fortunately as she explains in an update on the site a recent trip to the surgeon has brought some positive news.
When she last wrote for us Jenny (who is five years on from her original diagnosis) described her hopes for 2013 and gave an update on her training for this year's Edinburgh marathon. Keep an eye out for a new blog from her later this week!
