Hello, my name is Catherine Steele. I’m 46 years old, a wife, and a mother of tweenage twins. One day before our family were due to start a new life in Spain, I was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer and my world stopped. In the three years following my diagnosis I've learned to let go of past expectations, I've started living in the now and I've found the strength to be happy and to create a new life story.
This site is a collection personal of anecdotes, coping strategies and advice from a range of experts that I hope will help anyone who is plunged into the despair of an incurable cancer diagnosis. It’s full of things I’ve learned from research and personal experience that have helped lift me from the desperation of the early days into a place where I can enjoy living in again. It’s about relationships, nutrition, exercise, rest and mental health - all the things that need to be slowly and meticulously rebuilt on the road to survival.
