‘Chemo Snood Head Different Daily Headgear Challenge’
“On 30 July 2014 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. On that day I was introduced to my MacMillan Nurse Lisa who has been by my side ever since. A few weeks later I underwent surgery to remove the tumour.
That bit now done, to ensure my recovery, on Tuesday 14 October, I started 18 weeks of chemotherapy. As I’m sure you are aware, hair loss is one of the many side effects.
Throughout this most surreal roller coaster of appointments, pain, fear, laughter, tears, guilt, anger, hysterics, bad-taste-jokes, sleepless nights and denial, my MacMillan Nurse (we love Lisa) and the MacMillan counsellors (both emotional and practical) have been there and will continue to be there during my treatment and recovery.
In order to raise awareness of breast cancer and funds for MacMillan, I decided to take control and shave off my golden locks in stages over the days before my treatment started, and then commence with a
“365 Day Different Daily Headgear” challenge and post the photographic evidence on Instagram and Facebook. I am fairly certain there will be days when I can’t be bothered to find something different to wear on my head, take a photo and post on social media, but I will promise to do so. If you are not onocial media, do check in here every now and then for photo updates.
So, if you feel inclined, I along with MacMillan would be most grateful for any spare change you may be able to give..
Thank you x

Breast Cancer support Milton Keynes
Welcome to Bosom Pals (MK)
Bosom Pals is the primary Breast Cancer Support Group in Milton Keynes that is run wholly by volunteers.
The Group was established in 1991 by two ladies (Eileen Garrad and Mary Lewis), who had recently received treatment for Breast Cancer. Support, When You Need It Most!
Bosom Pals offers you the opportunity to discuss your feelings and fears with someone who genuinely knows what you are going through. So there’s no need for you to feel isolated or alone.
We have volunteers who have been trained by Breast Cancer Care and are willing to make one-to-one home visits if you prefer. Whether you are going through treatment now or you have received treatment in the past, we are here to listen and offer advice and support. We provide the opportunity to talk through your concerns and also have a range of leaflets and books available.
Bosom Pals is also open to Carers, Relatives and Friends of those diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
