A large box full of goodies has arrived on my doorstep. They are frozen meals from a company that claims to be ‘just like homemade’, which is good because at the moment a little homemade comfort is exactly what the doctor ordered.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer a few days after my one year wedding anniversary. That was a shocker. After three years NED, cancer reappeared and pushed me to stage four. This blog captures life despite cancer. With international relocations, job search drama, fighting off apartment vermin, falling deeply in love and more. Life is challenging, but nevertheless inspiring and that’s what Bumpboobs is all about.
