I was diagnosed with breast cancer on June 22, 2012, aged 29. I began writing this blog on Facebook to keep my friends and family up to date on my journey, and recently I made it public after receiving requests from friends of friends. I hope no offence will be taken to this blog, and that readers will understand I have decided to take my cancer as a positive experience that can provide humour and laughter to us all. After all, my intention is to kick its ass, not let it beat me.
I recently began working for Facebook in Dublin, after almost 7 years working for Bloomberg as a journalist in Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo and London. I am passionate about great food, running, Latin America and spending time with my wonderful family and friends.
