Natalie Wager

My name is Natalie, I am 33 years and was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer at the age of 32. In 2018 I had chemotherapy, surgery and then radiotherapy. After 8 months and 3 days of grueling treatment I have been lucky enough to be able to say I have ‘no evidence of disease’.

To understand the impact a breast cancer diagnosis can have on a young female please read my blog: https://theexperienceoftriplenegativebreastcancerat32.wordpress.com/

What I’m doing:

Emma (my friend) and I have set ourselves the challenge of raising £2019 each in 2019 for the Norfolk Big C Charity. To raise £2019 each in a year is a challenge, but one we are excited to take on. To achieve this goal we will be organising/participating in six activities: a 50 mile cycle, half marathon, head-shave, raffle, a science night and a bake sale. To read more about our campaign follow: https://2019in2019forbigc.wordpress.com/

Why I’m fundraising:

The Big C (for those of you that don't know) is a charity in Norfolk who "are working to improve the lives of those affected by cancer in Norfolk & Waveney".  As you can imagine, being diagnosed with cancer is terrifying, especially the period between being diagnosed and waiting for the scan results to confirm whether the cancer is metastatic or not (spread from the original tumour to organs and bones). The Big C provided me with a place to go and chat to volunteer nurses about the scary things that were happening to me, and offered a quiet place to sit and have a cup of tea and biscuits after some extremely upsetting meetings with my oncologist and surgeon. Further along the process the Big C charity provided me with advice about wigs and offered hats and headscarves to try in anticipation of my hair falling out.  This charity also amazingly offers each person that is diagnosed, and their partner, with 6 free massages to help them relax and feel a little better during such a horrible period of their life, as well as free make up and headscarf tying courses for those loosing their hair, eyebrows and eyelashes! This charity really made a positive difference to my experience of getting cancer this year.
