Lisa Fleming, Founder of Make 2nds Count, Secondary Breast Cancer Charity Shares her 4 year Battle..

It's Make 2nds Count 3rd Birthday and Lisa Flemings 4th Cancerversary 

We are so Grateful for the Support the Charity and Lisa provided Kate when she was diagnosed with Secondary Breast Cancer.  

Lisa Fleming, Founder of Make 2nds Count is also fighting Secondary Breast Cancer and a dear friend of Kate McIver Skin.  She is truly inspirational. 

Here Lisa shares her journey

4 years ago tonight I went to sleep for the last time without knowing cancer was about to step in and rock our lives.
4 years on this rollercoaster ride when they gave me 6 months.
Today and tomorrow are always a weird day for me as I can’t help but go back over it all.
I remember that day so vividly - the last day I kissed Cameron good night without my heart sinking and the last time I truly felt like me and was ‘cancer free’. (Although ironically I was obviously riddled with it and had been for a long time)
I feel like I could fill a book if I was to document what we have had to endure over the last 48 months.
🙈 67 cycles of herceptin (IV infusion)
🙈 47 cycles of capecitabine (chemo)
🙈 47 cycles of denosumab (bone juice)
🙈 13 surgeries from my spine, breast, brain, lady bits and the bits in between
🙈 Chemically induced menopause
🙈 More scans then they could count! I’m surprised I don’t glow in

the dark

🙈 2 very close calls
🙈 Countless sleepless nights
Yet cancer has brought some positives (crazy though it seems).
💕The chance to meet some incredible people
💕The chance to see life and people in a different light
💕The chance to start something that my family can be proud of in years to come in Make 2nds Count
💕 The chance to make memories
💕 The chance to help others living with this disease.
💕 The chance to keep living the best life that I can even though it’s not the life I wanted
We celebrate 3 year’s of M2C tomorrow and it’s quite unbelievable how far it has come since I sat in my trusty chemo chair and decided to set it up.
The one million pound mark is on the horizon and I couldn’t be prouder of our wee team who work so hard to give hope to those living with secondary breast cancer.
So happy 4th Cancerversary ‘eve’ you little shit.
You came to destroy me but somehow we’re still going strong. Anyone who knows me, knows that I like a party so cancer be warned - I’ll see you again this time next year!
