I’m Liz O’Riordan, and I’m a Consultant Breast Surgeon. Ironically, in July 2015 I was diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer at the age of 40. I started a blog to help me come to terms with my cancer diagnosis, and now formally write and talk about my experiences. This led to me being nominated for a 'Woman of the Year' award in 2016. I had a local recurrence in May 2018 and have just finished treatment.
I have co-authored 'The Complete Guide to Breast Cancer: How to Feel Empowered and Take Control' with Professor Trisha Greenhalgh. It covers everything you need to know to empower you during treatment, and is packed full of all the tips and tricks we learned along the way.
