a teacher of 4/5 year olds who loves her job diagnosed with breast cancer waiting to see oncologistSave as Favorite
I am a teacher who loves her job and am about to see my oncologist to discuss and confirm my treatment. i am not yet convinced about chemo etc and wish to carry on working (3 days) as i have my 14month old baby the other 2 days at home. I have a head teacher who is supportive (so far) however i am very worried about how my parents will recieve the news ( i work in a private school) and also i have a parent who is having reconstructive surgery after battling cancer for the last 2 years. Her 4 year old son is in my class and has had a very difficult 2 years! i'm also not sure how i will respond to my treatment and whether parents, staff etc need to know. Only my head and close colleague have been told so far? It all seems very complicated and confusing as i don't feel ill and wonder why an earth i would enter into the world of chemo etc!
