Julia’s cancer journey began in May 2021, when she was told she had breast cancer and needed a mastectomy. After recovering from an infection following the operation, she embarked on five months of chemotherapy and three weeks of radiotherapy, and also endured a hysterectomy following another complication. After treatment ended, there were days when the thought of the cancer returning became all consuming, like a sword permanently hanging over her head.
Cancer Coach helped her deal with the aftermath of her many treatments, and showed her that she wasn’t alone.
