Lizzie on living life well
Lizzie is a Police Officer, a basketballer, a netballer, a mum and a grandmother. And she is the inspiration behind a programme that assists victims of domestic violence. Lizzie has also been living with advanced breast cancer for eight years.
“I was first diagnosed with breast cancer in May 2010 when I was 42 years old. I found a small lump in my left breast and then I had a partial mastectomy, six weeks radiotherapy and was placed on Letrozole,” Lizzy says. “I coped well, continued working and playing sport once I’d recovered from surgery. I got on with life.”
Then in late 2011, Lizzie began experiencing excruciating pain in her right thigh. It was six months until she was diagnosed with secondary cancer to the bone.
“At the time I was unaware that this could happen,” she says.
