About

I’m 30. I am relatively short. I have dark hair and eyes that change colour. Until recently my life was about studying for a phd, hanging out with my friends, loving and fighting with my now ex-boyfriend, dreaming of moving back to Barcelona to live by the sea…and amongst all, it was about being undecisive about what to do with my life! Then I  found a lump on my left breast, which turned out to be cancer and my world was turned upside down. This is the story of me and my lump as we learn to live together and then apart. Ready? go!

Cant believe you had nine kids…. (; When I think of my future kids, I have this feeling that I cant wait to meet them! LOVE LOVE..K

  2. Dear Rosa,

    I have been working on a project for Cancer Research UK looking at how patients are talking about cancer in a more open, honest and irreverent way.

    We are holding a brainstorming event on the evening of the 9th December to look at opportunities in this area and we are looking for people like you to participate.

    If you or any of your friends are able to come, I can give you more information in an E-mail.

    Best Wishes

  4. this is amazing! rosa, what an insprining journey and message. you’re gorgeous in all of these look!

  5. hi rosa, my friend in barcelona sent me a link to your blog and i just wanted to say thankyou so much for such honest and inspiring writings. i am also single london 30something girl with too much going on in my life to have time for breast cancer, also with no family history of the disease, but was diagnosed in december. friends and a couple of nurses had told me not to worry- ‘it’ll just be a cyst or a benign lump…’ all too familiar as you know, and then suddenly it was real. and yet so unreal. i’ve had my surgery, they’ve frozen my eggs (i didn’t have to make embryo’s thank goodness- i had no idea?!), and i’ve just had my first FEC chemo….your blog is the first thing i’ve read that i feel actually relates to my own situation. it’s just amazing, and nothing like all the leaflets they give you from the hospital, so thankyou. if i could give you my hair as i lose it i would, and you would be back to haircut no.2…best wishes and much love. you’re a star x

    • Hi Sharon!

      Thanks so much for your message and I’m glad that you find the blog helpful!! i don’t know anyone else with a similar situation to mine, so I was very happy you wrote. Let me send you an email soon so we can talk more privately, is that ok with you? xx

      • of course! mail me. and in the meantime my hospital recommends talika- from spaceNK- for eyebrows and lashes- i’m using it now to try and keep mine for a bit longer!- but it’s meant to be good for growing afterwards too (my friend is ‘marphille’ btw- a good catalan boy!) x
