Ciara Delaney's Story

“We all have two lives… the second one begins when we realise we only have one.” ~ Confucius. • My sisters and I are doing this challenge to celebrate life and raise funds for Breast Cancer research, support and education. I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer just before Christmas ‘22. I have now completed 5 months and 30 doses of chemotherapy 😄 • This has been a humbling and beautiful experience with many more good days than challenging ones. I couldn’t have done it without the endless, boundless love and support of my amazing family - my mum and dad, my sisters, my brothers, my extended family, my husband and my beautiful daughters - my fantastic friends and colleagues, the new friends I have found in cancer support centres and (singing) sea swimming circles, and my wonderful oncology, healing and care teams. • Thank you so much for sending me beautiful flowers, cards, gifts, mass bouquets, messages, prayers, kind thoughts and good energy during these months. As mum said… “if love and good wishes can get you through this then there’s no shortage of that”. It’s easy to do hard things when I’m surrounded by so much love and magic. I am so sincerely grateful 💕 • Thank you for your generosity and support! 💕 •💛 • 💙
