Eat Healthy, Live Mindfully

My IV treatment has nearly come to an end.  Yippee!  I’m pretty bloody excited.  My last treatment is on 2 January and my portacath comes out during day surgery on Tuesday 7 January.  My breast surgeon is going to do the removal seeing as I was less than impressed with the insertion by the radiology team.  It’s been great having the portacath seeing as I had so many rounds of IV treatments.  Can’t imagine having that many in one arm.  No needles allowed on my operated side.  Derek, Rosie and Polly are going to come along for a visit while I’m having my last treatment.  It will be nice to have them there.

The main reason for this blog post though is to let you all know about my most recent project.  I’ve started another blog called eat healthy, live mindfully and it’s about my pilgrimage back to great fantastic amazing health.  I intend on sharing my progress and also lots of information along the way for anyone interested in also improving their own health.  I’m very excited about this project as I’m hoping it keeps me on track to health and wellness but also the possibility of helping others along the way.  Please visit the my eat healthy, live mindfully blog and sign up for email updates so they arrive straight into your inbox.  You can also find me here:

I will continue giving updates on anything breast cancer related on this blog but I’ll be spending a lot more time over on the other blog so I hope to see you over there.

I also wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  Enjoy the festivities and the special family time.  Thanks for reading this year and for your supportive messages.  They’ve helped me through some very dark days.  Here’s to 2014 being a great fantastic amazing year for everyone!

  1. So excited for you all Cassie!! I know I don’t know you personally, but know Derek from when he stayed with us… So I’ve followed this blog closely.. I can’t imagine the relief you will feel when it’s all over! You have been so strong through it all & no doubt you have inspired so many other sufferers to look at the positive sides!
    We all know now that 2014 WILL be YOUR YEAR!! No one deserves it more than you do!!

  2. Hooray for great news!
    Will be thinking about you on 2nd and 7th. Another big milestone.
    So when do we get that blog post that tells us you have the all clear? Is it much long after? Look forward to that one and a big celebration.
    Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family.
    Love your new venture and am following it very closely and with much interest.

    • Hi Katie and Mark, as far as I’m concerned and my oncologist thinks the same as me, I am cancer free. I was cancer free straight after my surgery. The rest of the treatment has been to make sure it never rears its ugly head again and to mop up any rogue cancer cells anywhere else in my body. The hormone blocking therapy I’ll continue to be on for years will also make sure it doesn’t come back. Cancer free! Yay!

      Love Cas

  3. Dear Cassie

    Very glad to hear that your treatment finishes early January and I do hope that 2014 will be very kind to you.

    We wish you and your family a very happy Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

    I hope that you are seeing your family from up here sometime over the Christmas break, always nice to catch up on things from up here.

    I am still having my 3 monthly IV of Zometa and 6 months scans, all due in February and see Oncologist then too, hopefully there will be no change.

    All the best to you

    Kind Regards

    Sondra Mitchell
