“It’s my funeral. If I want you to play Bon Jovi and U2 as they wheel my body away to be cremated you’ll do it.”
The horrified look on Brendan’s face says he’ll do anything but.
“People will laugh.”
“I want them to. I want a funeral where everyone stands around and remembers the funny things I did, and then they get really pissed.”
Sophie Molloy has Breast Cancer. She didn’t think it was cancer to begin with, she thought it was another cyst. She also didn’t think it would be the catalyst for a series of life changing events, none of which involved chemotherapy.
Within months of her diagnosis, Sophie loses not only her right breast but her boyfriend of three years, her house and her so-called best friend. Her life goes from great to bad, then ugly, and nothing can make it better, not even the crazy care packages her mother keeps sending from Melbourne.
To make matters worse, Sophie fears she’s developing a crush on the plastic surgeon that will be reconstructing her breast. Dr. Hanson has the bedside manner of an angel and the looks to match. He’s so caring and compassionate, Sophie begins to believe he cares about her in a most non-doctor-patient kind of way. But he doesn’t, of course. He’s merely her doctor. Or does he?
In February 2012, Lindy Dale was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. While the events in this story are largely of her own imagination and for your entertainment, the medical journey closely follows her own. She is now in the last stages of reconstruction and living happily on the farm with her hubby of 25 years, G.
Proceeds in the months of February and March are being donated to Research on Women’s Cancers (an Australian Cancer charity).
