My name is Stephanie Butland and I am thriving after breast cancer. (I used to say I was a survivor, but that was a bit, well, lacking in joi de vivre, somehow.)
Since diagnosis in November 2008 I have taken everything that the medical profession can throw at me: surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and ongoing drug therapy. And I’ve tried to do it with a good heart and a strong mind. Sometimes I’ve succeeded. Always, I’ve blogged.
Although I’d never have chosen it, my dance with cancer has changed my life in many positive ways. Now I am happier, healthier, more careful with my precious life and the precious people and things in it.
I’ve written two books about my dance with breast cancer. You can read more about them here.
(There are two novels coming soon, too.)
Aside from writing, I work as a speaker, trainer, and coach, and I work with charities to help raise awareness and money in the hope that cancer will soon be about as scary as a wart.
Please contact me to ask about any of these things.
