About this blog

This blog is aimed at being a positive and helpful insight into what it is really like to have breast cancer at a young age.

Where other websites give facts and figures, possible side effects and outcomes, the most helpful information is usually that of real people, with real experiences.

So, with the hope of achieving just that – a real account of a breast cancer journey with the hope of helping just one other person trying to get through to the other side.

I am Dee Matthews diagnosed with breast cancer Invasive Ductal Carcinoma In Situ, in 2014 at the age of 32 years.  Living in Leeds, West Yorkshire with a husband and two young children.

  1. Hi Dee!

    I came across your blog on twitter and absolutely love it. I am the Health Promotions officer for Trekstock, a cancer charity that supports all young adults (18-39) in the UK who have experienced cancer.

    We would love if you joined our Young Person’s Network.

    Best wishes,


  2. I have just come across your blog, blogs like this are so important. We have a huge history of breast cancer in our family, so it’s something I am aware of a lot. Thank-you for raising awareness. Great Blog. xxx
