Breast cancer was always there in our family. My mother was 26 when she was diagnosed and she died when she was just 31. I was 7 when she died and my sister, Rhonda, was 9. We also knew that our grandmother had been just 26 when she had died of the same illness. No one needed to tell us that we were at risk. That was just obvious. Unfortunately, we had no idea what we could do about it. I saw a documentary about Wendy and I wrote to her. She was in touch straight away and there was someone who we could talk to, who understood exactly how we felt. She was amazing and was with us all the way. She battled the Health Authority for us and arranged appointments for us. She saw us through every step of the process and neither of us would have got through without her. We have both been able to get on with our lives. Wendy set up the helpline to help others in the same situation and I hope that we will be able to help her support others who have the same difficult decisions to make.
