Radiotherapy & Sally

I had radiotherapy for breast cancer at the age of 37.

It was never on my bucket list

I’m Sally.

I had radiotherapy for breast cancer at the age of 37.

I am not the kind of person who goes out and runs a marathon to raise money for a cause, so instead, after having radiotherapy, I decided to use my experience to make a difference to others.

I wasn’t very good at English in school, but during this process I discovered I could write poetry - this was a real revelation for me.

I have tried to communicate my story through the visual artwork, using images that represent the words that I have used in my poetry and the story.
