Ta-Ta to Mandy's Tatas

I was diagnosed with an Invasive Ductal Carcinoma on the 13th of September 2017.
True to form, anything I do seems to be “go BIG or go home” in nature, my cancer is Stage IIIA cancer at this stage, which requires a mastectomy and then post op chemotherapy and radiation.
I am not my Cancer.
I am a mother who got a daughter through her Zac Efron crush and then again through a Vampire/Werewolf love triangle.
I am a mother who spent days scrubbing Blue enamel paint off and out of every orifice when her son wanted to be the AVATAR and rolled in paint.
I am a wife who has marvelled at the fact that her husband can erect the most intricate of steel structures, yet finds replacing a toilet roll challenging.
I have survived all manner of crisis big and small, I intend getting our little family through this one.
I am not my Cancer.
I am a hair stylist/pseudo psychologist.
I am a hand holder,
a wiper of tears,
I am so much more and want to be more, if only my Tatas weren’t intent on trying to kill me. I have declared war on my cancer and need you all to fight with me.
My oncologist has expressed his concern for an urgency operation which costs over R120 000.
